    My PV3 flys great takes great stills.
    My issue is that the video is not a video at all.
    The .MOV files jump from frame to frame and skip many.
    Tried a different computer and still same issue.

    My PV2 with gopro uses MP4 extension and its perfect, same with my 2 Vision pluses.

    Any help or input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Terry

    I had a similar problem. For me it had to do with the video settings. I was able to play it on a brand new computer, but nothing else. Out of the box the video setting was 1080/60. I changed it to 720/60 and it works just fine.

    I used VLC media player and it worked great. QuickTime could not play the file so well.

    I did switch my settings to MP4. I thought that would allow QuickTime play it, but still no. VLC could play both out of the gate. MOV and MP4. I am using a i7 MacBook Pro and a Hackintosh I built in a G5 case. image.jpg image.jpg

    Mine is running smooth with 1080P 60 FPS. I manually put in iso 100 and 1/200 shutter speed for a neutral density filter. No filter, I'd go higher in shutter speed.

    Files in MP4 or .MOV only work if I open 1st with gopro studio. No sure why. But they work perfect if I play with the gopro software

    I was having a similar frame jumping issue and found this thread. VLC media player fixed it. Videos that jump on QuickTime run smooth as silk on VLC.

    What did we ever do before message boards?
