gopro hero3 glitchy video output

I just bought a gopro hero3 black ed. As the accompanying card suggest. I quickly followed the steps to upgrade the firmware. When I recorded a sample video. All I got is a video playback that keeps on stuttering. I tried reformatting bit to no avail. I tried updating again following the instruction to copy the update in the sd card. By the i also encountered a wireless update failed with both led lights blinking. Anybody with the same issue. I used VLC and win mediaplayer on win7 64bit for playback

Are you plugging the camera

Are you plugging the camera into the computer to view the videos? What kind of SD card do you have (brand/size/speed)?

Copy the files directly to

Copy the files directly to the computer. USB usually isn't fast enough to transfer the video during playback.

Jittery Hero3 video.

I bought my son a Hero3 Black for Christmas & we had the same issue with the jittery video.

The way we found to fix (or is it to get around it) was to drop the Frames Per Second to around 24/25 FPS when recording at 1080p.

Also not playing back from the micro SD card but copying file from the card to the pc and using the suggested software on the GoPro site VLC media player helped to.

Obviously lots of playing around with the settings or reading of recommendations on the forums for various settings for different tasks & environments to come!

Once you get over the frustration, it is such a cool little device!

Having the same

Having the same jumping/freezing issues here when trying to view with QuickTime and/or VLC.

Hero3 Black - Sanddisk Ultra class 10 32GB - recording in factory preset HD
Computer - MacBook, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, 250GB HD, 2.53 GHZ Intel Core i5

Never experienced the issue with a Hero and Hero 2. I suspect we'll have to lower the record quality to something closer to that of the Hero 2...bummer. So far my quick fix has been to use Handbrake to convert my recordings down to the AppleTV settings. That fixed it.

The other option that work was to Export with QuickTime down to the iPad quality level.

Hopefully someone will share the most optimal solution...the maximum setting to record in on the Hero 3 Black that won't jump and skip on playback.

Same here too

Having the same problem fo the frames freezing (as though buffering) as everyone else with my black edition, i'm using a MAC to view the video and i'm downloading to the PC before viewing the video.

I followed the suggestion to slow it down to 1080 24 FPS but i still get the frames freezing although not as bad as on 1440 48fps.

I'll trying converting the files as suggested but its not the answer really more a quick fix , if anyone has any suggestions i'd love to hear them, surely not every black edition is having the same problem ?
