How to do it

Your GoPro's media folder allows you to view, copy, and delete media on the SD card through the GoPro's Wi-Fi connection to the GoPro App.

App Media Warning

IMPORTANTGoPro App 5.2 introduced a new feature which now allows you to save the camera's media in the GoPro App, but don't be frightened! You can still take your footage within the media section of the GoPro app and transfer them to the native Photo app on your mobile device. For the record, this will not duplicate files on your iOS phone - it will only transfer them from one folder to the next. ANDROID USERS: It appears that files are currently duplicating on your devices, which we are aware of. This feature is expected to change in future updates, so please stay tuned.
