Hero 3 silver crashing not converting

I have been having trouble converting files longer then 3 min. If I make a 7 min video I have to split it up 2 or 3 times. Many times it sticks at a percentage. I have even been stuck at 98% for 8 hrs. Still nothing. 

I am a YouTube vlogger making videos about helping people in chronic pain live positively. 

This is ruining my vlog as I am making vlogs and can't upload.

I am NOT very pc savy and I have trouble with things having a TBI. I need a very very simplistic answer. Please help, thank you

Re: Hero 3 silver crashing not converting

Are you using GoPro Studio?
If so, the best thing for you to do is switch to a better video editor. Studio was discontinued awhile back and is not the best free editor available.
https://gopro.com/help/articles/Question_Answer/GoPro-Studio-End-of-Life-FAQ

You should try DaVinci Resolve https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve/
It's free and a much better editor.

Re: Hero 3 silver crashing not converting

That Davinci was impossible for me to use. Way to hard. And it crashed on me...I didnt not like it, but thanskf or trying.

Go Pro Studio is very easy to use. I don't believe it can be outdated for an old camera...That just doesn't make sense

Re: Hero 3 silver crashing not converting

It's not about the camera as much as it is that Studio was not very stable and resource intensive. If DaVinci crashed on you, your computer is probably not very adept for video editing.

Check out these articles. Hopefully they can help you find an editing software that will work for you.
