vlc - requires some tuning to play 4k videos and fails with the slow motion
Media player fails in both ways
It hard to believe, that GoPro fails to provide any viewer for the recoded videos
with their cameras.
I've also tried other GoPro software like Quik with the OsX (High Sierra).
Quik is a piece of s*** on the OSX. e.g. mine issue:
Generally looks like, that GoPro fails to create any desktop based software.
The only one question: How many bugs exist in the GoPro software which runs in the camera
if they fail to develop video viewer for the videos recored with their cameras?

Windows Media Player, designed by a software company with nearly unlimited resources, fails.
GoPro's free media editing and payback software, designed by a relatively small action camera company (brand recognition does not equate to size of company), does not work for you.
First, GoPro is a hardware company. Most other action camera companies don't provide any media software. Those that do, provide very basic software and usually it's just a third party software that they rebrand or just give access to.
Second, if you are having issues with software developed by software companies, perhaps you should consider it's your computer hardware that is failing to perform.
GoPro software, Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, Corel VideoStudio, and Windows Media Player all handle media captured on my GoPro cameras (including Hero6 Black).
Lastly, equating computer media editing software with the camera software is just ignorant and silly. Two very different devices, two entirely different divisions of the company, and two very different functions. GoPro is an Action Camera company that happens to provide free Desktop software as well as three very good mobile apps.
GoPro does not have to provide desktop software. You are not obligated to use it to use their cameras. If you want a more advanced editor, GoPro recommends free alternatives. If you want more advanced software you can try DaVinci Resolve or pay for software developed by software companies.
For playback, just about any software developed in the past couple years should work. If it doesn't, upgrade your computer or shoot in a lower resolution/frame rate. The issue is you, your computer, or both.

I wouldn't call it laziness, it's more like Microsoft paid GoPro to only make new products for Windows 10. And it's quite obvious since they've removed any links to the old GoPro Studio.
But enough digging can prove fruitful:
