Having trouble with lag or choppy videos!

I recently bought the GoPro because of the awesome footage I see being recorded on it!! That was the main selling point for me.. I took some footage and tried to edit on GoPro Studio but it wouldn’t play correctly, videos were choppy and I was very disappointed.. I was only able to play the video once I lowered the quality and thus making it look like I recorded it using a cheap phone or something.. not exactly what I expected.. if this continues I will definitely return and just buy a regular camera to record/ upload content.. can you please help??

Re: Having trouble with lag or choppy videos!

Same for me ... bought the latest (GoPro Hero 6 Black) and recorded some footage. The next day I wanted to make a video out of it ... but there is literally no possible way that could get working. Tried about 20 other programs to read the videos but only 2 could make it happen. Importing the videos in the Quik program works but if you try to use them in the editor you just get 1 picture of a video in the preview every 10 secs and if you try to put any marks on the left video footage it appears 5 secs later only ...

 

My settings for this:

CPU: i7-5820K

RAM: 16 GB DDR4

SSD: Samsung 840 Evo

Graphics card: Geforce GTX 970

Nothing is exhausted or anything like that, to the time I want to edit somthing.

 

What is needed to make and edit a video from this camera ... If it doesn't work in 5 days I'm sending it back too.

did you give it a try with onboard / integrated graphics?

Re: Having trouble with lag or choppy videos!

I have a stock HP pavilion dv6-6163cl.

How do I upgrade the graphic card??

> How do I upgrade the graphic card??

parallel to the Geforce card there is a 'basic' graphic card which is normally an 'Intel HD". You can try to run Quick on this card. There should be an application on your laptop which allows to configure with program uses which graphic card. For details about your pc configuration pls use google :)
