Question

What are the supported resolutions for Playback and Copy in the GoPro App?

Where does it apply?

  • GoPro App

Answer

Not all devices support Copy and Share in the same way. This article lays out the differences by device and capture mode.

Android Users:
Android devices do not have a strict set of video formats that are playable or not. The majority of current Android devices are capable of playing back most videos, even 4K. However, every Android phone is different, so you may see some stuttering or choppy playback on higher resolutions and frame rates.

iOS Users:
Please note that compatibility varies by device, camera model, and operating system version. Compatibility not guaranteed for all devices 
Protune™ video files are NOT supported for download for iOS.
