Getting frustrated with this 2nd GoPro in 5 years. 1st one was frustrating so I ditched it. Here I am again - frustrated.
I copied my photos from the GoPro 7 Black to the iPad GoPro App and see them in GoPro Media Library - but do not see them in my iOS photos library - and I know it’s about 30GB of photos. However when I look in settings for the size of the GoPro App it’s only a 150 MByte in size - so where are those photos stored?
What is Media Library? How do I - from the Media Library - upload them to GoPro Plus. I am in Bali and don’t think Plus works here. What about America? How do I do it? How do I know stuff is safely in the cloud (or on my iPad) so I can reformat my SIM card??
The Quik app starts playing all the time (and every time) you do anything. Hate hate hate that. But, my issue is this. Can I have a 20 min video using Quik - and is this for Quik with iOS or just desktop. If not - why? And how do I know my videos and photos are safely in cloud?
Also when I go to Quik it’s always asking me to “ADD TO CURRENT PROJECT” or CREATE NEW. Just let me select which project - you don’t even give me that option. !! And it’s counting down days for Quick videos. What form - and how/where do I save these when I can’t save to cloud in Bali. Doesn’t give option for local save.

Media copied to your mobile device via the GoPro app auto Quik Story are uploaded to the cloud. If you manually select files and save them to your device they are not.
If the media was copied over using Quik Story (where the app automatically grabs the media) you need to go into the media section on the app and then select the option to download it to your device. If you do this, then it will show in your phones photo library. If not, it will be available via the app for 7 days until it is automatically deleted (it's not stored locally but rather in the cloud, it just appears to be on your device. If you choose to save it locally, it will download).
Quik for mobile and Quik for desktop are two entirely different apps that have some similar features (creation of short videos synchronized to music), but otherwise are very different.
You can see what media has been uploaded to the cloud in a few different ways. One way is through the GoPro mobile app. Go to Media and then scroll the header over to GoPro Plus. Log in and it will show you the media that is stored in the cloud. Another way is to log in at gopro.com (icon of the person in the circle -- top right). After logging in, select the same icon and then go to media.
Quik story automatically creates a Quik video based on media captured in the last 24 hours. If it downloads media more than once, it will ask if you want to include the new media in your current project or create a new project.
If you are going from the GoPro app to Quik it's going to start playing the video auto created. If you just open Quik by itself, it wont start playing anything and will show you the current videos that have been created (if no videos have been created it will prompt you to select media to create one).
It may be possible to create a 20 minute video with no music selected. However, you are going to need a lot of free space and your mobile device might struggle to render something that size. I've made a video almost ten minutes long, so I guess it's possible. You're probably better off using a proper video editor on a computer if you want to do a project like that though. It's really not what Quik is designed for.
When you have created a Quik story, the last step is to save (Blue icon). When you select this, you are given the option to share or save without sharing. Either option will save a copy to your device.

Thank you so much. So I logged in via browser to GoPro plus account and see my Media so I guess it’s in the cloud. Fantastic.
So so let’s say I also have a few iPad photos I want to add into this Media on GoPro plus. I see it click Add Media. But, how do I select what Media I want to use to create a proper Quik video? Can we create 5 3 min Quik videos and then group them together for one 15 min video somehow? Like chaining a bunch of Quik videos? And when I create a Quik video using the GoPro Cloud Media, does it have to download all that media to my iPad from cloud before it allows me to start editing my Quik video - because if that’s the case, my hotel connection will likely explode. Is it best to just copy those files I want to my local iPad storage and them use the locally stored videos to make the Quik video?
