Unable to create a video with GoPro app

[ New ]

I've downloaded 13 clips from a recent adventure to my Android phone. When I click the create movie button in the app I can see the clips on the timeline, but the app says "error playing video" and won't allow me to edit or play the video. What can I do?

Sorry to hear you're experiencing issues with the app, @hettisunshine. The application's performance will also depend on the mobile device's system and power. Please make sure your mobile device, app, and camera are on their current versions. Additionally, there are some troubleshooting suggestions here that will help.

Hi @smatterpunk

 

When on Media, do you get an error when playing the files back?

Can you also help us with the following information: Camera version, GoPro App version, phone and OS version.

 

Thanks!

Hello @smatterpunk


Thanks for the information.

Kindly check if you are able to play the files on the Media tab.

Do you still remember the resolution/settings used on these videos?

 

To help isolate the issue, see if the same happens when using another phone.

 

Thanks!

Same problem here. Also creating stories keep showing error, then hanging up. In the end have to go out of the app and start all over again..
