Re: vr player codec

Hi @rapidrange67735

 

Please see: GoPro VR Sunset Information

You may also check the codecs installed on your desktop given that the files play fine on another device.

You may seek out help from your OS Support.

 

 

Thanks!

Re: vr player codec

I don't have the app available to me at the moment, but there is a playback setting where you can change the backend. I was getting this, but I went into settings (maybe under playback) and there were a few different options. I believe I chose one that said Windows or Windows media and it worked fine.
