Gopro plus auto upload speeds

Hi there

How long does it take to upload a 14 min clip on GoPro plus? 1080 at 60fps.
Finding the upload times waaay tooooo long. It's taking about 2hrs so far, still not finished

Thanks now

@Anonymous - It depends on the bandwidth our your wifi network and the speeds of the PLUS servers. It can take some time though.

Same issue here, 300MB has taken 30 minutes using Quik for Mac, an upload of that size should take 10 mins with my setup. I would say it's not very usable, not much point paying for cloud storage if you can't use it so doubt I'll be renewing Plus after the trial ends.

Re: Gopro plus auto upload speeds

Same problem here... GoPro Plus upload times are so long that it is unusable.  The service is a nice idea, but it has to actually work. Which it doesn't.  

 

I tried to upload some large videos, for sure, but I let it run all night and it uploaded just a couple of video clips (1080p 60fps) of less than 30 seconds each, from my MacBook.  My H5B hasn't managed to auto-upload anything yet. 

 

This service is shockingly poor for a company that has made such an awesome camera.

Re: Gopro plus auto upload speeds

The extremely slow upload speeds are a major fail for GoPro Plus.   They really missed the mark with this one.  Considering that video files are inherently large, to have upload speeds costing >8 hours for 500 MB  is awful; espesicially for a paid service.   WTF?!    I think I’ll cancel this until they get it right and go back to using other cloud services (e.g. DropBox) until Plus has more respectable speeds.

Re: Gopro plus auto upload speeds

Did you figure uot a way around the snail speed of your uploads? One 1.5 hr video STILL takes me 4 huors. Forget about a full SD card....it takes DAYS. Any help or ideas would be apprecialted as customer support is less than impressive....
