Watching in full resolution

[ New ]



I have recently purchased the GoPro Hero 9 for my scuba diving activies. 
First, I can connect my camero to Quik but cannot see the media on it. I can only see the media downloaded on the Cloud.

So I always download it from the SD card through my computer to have it at full resolution.

But for some reason, whether I watch the footage on VLC or QuickTime , it always seems to bug, freeze or act like it is a GIF (even Quik, but I barely use it because the resolution is lower). I cannot watch my videos smoothly on any type of app. 


Are there some type of settings I need to change or can you recommend any other app ? 

My video settings are as follows: 1080, 240 or 60, Wide angle.


Thanks for any help !
