Exporting GoPro video to Android Mobile

When transferring from GoPro to GoPro App and then to save to gallery does it duplicate the file twice.

For example, if I had a 500mb video in GoPro's SD card, while tranferring to GoPro app and then export to storage will it consume 500*2 = 1000 mb storage in my android mobile ?

Re: Exporting GoPro video to Android Mobile

Currently, yes. On Android phones (not iOS) the file remains in the app even when saved to the phone's photo gallery. To free up space you will need to go into the app media (after saving to the phone) and delete the app media. If you have GoPro Plus you will want to make sure the media has uploaded to the cloud prior to deleting it from the app. Also, if you are making Quik Stories, it's best to have the media in the app (it will work with media saved in the phone gallery, but not as efficiently).

BTW, it has been reported that an update is scheduled to be released soon. So, this may be corrected very soon.
