Part 2. General Knowledge about GoPro Videos

When it comes to recording action-packed adventure sports and activities, nothing can do them justice like GoPro cameras. GoPro is the most versatile action camera available and the videos recorded using these cameras are known as GoPro videos. These action cameras are capable of recording high-quality images as well as videos with audio.

There are various models of GoPro cameras launched to date. The GoPro videos by default are recorded in MP4 file type using h.264 codec. Thus MP4 can be considered as the GoPro video format. Though there are a few exceptions related to resolution and frame rate combination where HEVC (h.265) is used for the applicable modes and the devices are HERO6, HERO7 Black, and HERO8 Black. The frame rate and the resolution of the GoPro videos can be selected as per the requirements. The general GoPro frame rate is between 24fps to 240 fps.

Go Pro videos are compatible with iOS devices running on iOS 11 or newer versions and Android devices running on Android 7.0 or later OS versions. The viewing and the sharing of the files are compatible with the videos that are captured in select modes only.
