Re: MEDIA play but no preview. Cant capture pictures

Hello @marceio

 

Sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with Quik for desktop. Which camera are you using? If the preview gives you only the black thumbnails, how does the play back go? Are yo able to view the actual video or photo? Also, do the thumbnails looks the same when using a different media player?  Have you tried accessing these files through the GoPro App on a mobile device? Do you get the same black preview? 

 

Try uninstalling and re-installing the Quik app on your computer. If you can also perform a manual update on your camera, that would be helpful. Should the issue persist even after doing the recommended steps, the next path forward would be to get in touch with our Support team. This is so they can offer a more personalized support as the issue maybe associated to particular settings on your computer. You can reach the team through phone or chat here https://gopro.com/help/ContactUs

 

Best regards,

Re: MEDIA play but no preview. Cant capture pictures

Hello @mariustanya, thanks for your help.

I am using a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. The playback works fine. If i click on the vidieo/photo I can watch it. Using windows media player I can see the preview with no black preview. The files are now on the PC so i cant acces them by a mobile device.

 

I did the uninstalling and re-installing and it didnt fix it.

I will get in contact with the support team. Thank you.
