Re: Unable to trim videos in the app with the latest update

The last update for the Hero5 Session was July 2017 (!), hopefully it comes soon.

Re: Unable to trim videos in the app with the latest update

The update is for the app, not camera.

Just a note, Samsung phones have horrible and limited video decoders and will struggle with video editing apps.

Re: Unable to trim videos in the app with the latest update

This just happened to me again. There's definitely a bug in the app that needs fixing. I'll try to reinstall.

Re: Unable to trim videos in the app with the latest update

I'm ready to give up, what a monumental waste of time this has been. My insta360 one X NEVER glitches like this. It's such a joy compared to my #%&^#*! Gopro. To get and save my videos with the OneX,, I just plug it to my phone. Bang. There they are. Every time. Suck it, gopro. I hate you.

Re: Unable to trim videos in the app with the latest update

We know Insta360, hope your IPO goes better than your challenge to GoPro in the action camera arena.
