Re: Unable to open Quik - stuck at "Authenticating"

It is GoPro's fault. I doesn't need to connect to the Internet for a person to import their footage and modify them. Although the solutions above regard one occassional a Mac solution, it also affects PCs - it's on their server-side.

Hey All -  google 'change my host file' for your platform - but this worked for me on Mac OSX 10.13.2

 

open your 'hosts' file in terminal, using sudo. Its in    /private/etc/

 

add a new line following any lines that are there

 

127.0.0.1       localhost

 

writeout/save, exit.   quit the Qik app and try again.  Worked for me.

 

 


Thanks @iceman2016 ! it's works!
