GoPro Video Converter, GoPro 4K Video Converter
You have a bunch of footage on your GoPro camera, and try to play the video files with your current media player such as VLC, but find that the video footage appears to jump from frame to frame rather than playing smoothly as it should. If you experience choppy, jerky, or broken up playback when viewing GoPro video files, it is not your camera problem, the problem lies with the codec. The GoPro Hero cameras use H.264 method to compress and decompress the footage very heavily. This means that they take up less space on the card but, on the flip side, makes them very hard for your computer to play back.
To make GoPro video files recognized by your computer and therefore play back much more smoothly, you should change the video footage to a less compressed, more easily worked format. Luckily, GoPro offers a free software - GoPro Studio for converting GoPro videos into a more manageable file format. Alternatively, you can use the brilliant GoPro Video Converter to convert your GoPro video files to other video formats that are compatible with your media players and non-liner editing software, such as VLC, Windows Media Player, QuickTime, iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Premiere, AVID, Vegas, etc.
