Re: GoPro Max - black screen on iPhone for 360° videos

I just made sure I have the latest version. It reports 6.11 (3659). I have gone through every setting in my iPhone, comparing it with my wife’s and I can’t ever get it to playback 360 videos. I did have an accessibility setting turned on to reduce motion. I turned that off and rebooted my phone, but that didn’t help. I know I’m not the only one. I’d love to help you figure this out. What else can I try?

@utahdrone 

Sorry about that, we've had mention of this issue before however we did not manage to ever reproduce this problem in-house making it hard to fix. I will try to know more.

- Yes, I can playback 2D videos just fine. The 360 videos playback without error, there is just a black screen. Here's a screencapture video of me opening up a 360 video I recorded with my MAX: https://photos.app.goo.gl/RfNJrYimAnSqoC8B9

- Yes, I have a GoPro account. The email is ed718****@hotmail.com. Yes, I am logged in with that account in the GoPro app.

- I've got 30 GB of free space on my iPhone. I've tried short and long videos. I always get the same result.

- Yes, other apps I use on my phone for taking and editing video include: Splice, Youtube, Camera+, Orange Cam, Videosport, Vidometer, iMovie, and Videoshop.

[ Edited ]

I decided to try resetting all settings on my phone and... it worked! I can now see the 360 degree video!

Now I just have to go through and reconfigured preferences on my phone and setup all my credit cards in Apple Pay again. I'll try to check the video as I'm changing settings to see if there is something that breaks it along the way.
