How can I view or convert .gcs video files since GoPro Studio is no longer available?

Hello - I have old .gcs files on my computer which I created using the old GoPro Studio computer application.  I have been trying to research ways to view these files and simply convert to a different video format and still have not had any luck.  Could someone please help on the best way to view these files?  I am using a new MacBook pro.  Thanks!

Hello @lukem3. Which media players have you tried, so far? Since .gcs files are the file extensions for GoPro Studio projects, this means that you'll need the corresponding .mp4 and .jpg files that were used, otherwise the files cannot be viewed. But see if the applications here that can be used to view and edit GoPro media will recognize the .gcs files. Let us know how it goes.
