GoPro Player App

Now that you’ve captured everything with your GoPro MAX, transform your 360 footage into epic traditional videos and photos you can edit and share. Use Reframe to experiment with countless views and choose the best shots with a click of a keyframe—instantly creating cinematic transitions from view to view. Then, convert and export traditional .mp4 files that play nice with your favorite editing programs and can be shared on social. Want to keep things 360? Export without reframing and you’ll get spherical .mp4 files that can be edited and shared on select platforms. You’ll have a range of resolutions (5.6K, 4K, custom) [1] and codecs (HEVC, H.264, Apple® ProRes) to choose from. And, you can always view your videos and photos right from the player. --- Key Features --- Transform 360 footage into epic content. Use Reframe to experiment with countless views, choose the best shots and instantly create cinematic transitions with a click of a keyframe. Then export a traditional video or photo you can edit and share. Export .mp4 files to edit and share. Export both spherical and traditional .mp4 files that are compatible with other editing software and ready to be shared on social. Convert 360 videos. Choose from a range of resolutions (5.6K, 4K, custom) [1] and codecs (HEVC, H.264, Apple ProRes). Never miss a great shot. Capture incredible photos from any of your 360 or traditional videos by grabbing a frame. Get game-changing horizon leveling. Adjust the horizon in your videos to keep it level—whether you’re getting sideways, running or doing backflips. Lock in your world. Use World Lock to set the orientation of your 360 videos and minimize rotation in your footage. Freeze your favorite frames. Emphasize a cool shot in your 360 videos. Pause and extend a moment for as long as you want with Freeze Frame, and then reframe for an even greater effect. Trim with precision.

GoPro Player app reviews

  • ugh!!! 1/5

    By Steph Ffff
    horrible tutorials.. opens on my mac and asks me what media to open -thats the ONLY option. Not a single way to upload my content.. no buttons for that. nothing else to click on. frustrating!!!!!
  • how do i find additional features 2/5

    By moppijmj
    my video is upside down, i would like to flip it so i can watch my video. is there a tutorial for this app?
  • Updated to the Quick iOS App gGeneration 3/5

    This app is time consuming Crashing constantly upto 5xxx trying to connect my GoPro Fusion, working fine wiht my Go Pro Hero 8, that I completely change to the Quick App for my vids is fast and reallly useful, anyways I cameback to check hoping there will be an Update for my Macbook Pro. Is my workstation and it would be really helpfull if you guys updated the version
  • Hot Sh*t! 5/5

    By namelessurfer
    This editing app makes it super easy, to do initial editing pass for all 360 footage. Make sure your Max Camera is set to record in 360 mode and not hero9 when filming. Then bring your footage in, watch a tutorial or just dive in. Super simple 1st step solution to editing small clips and gathering what you want for your second pass in another editing software. Simple, Easy to use, Great for processing footage! 25 years in Editing Experience...
  • The MAX is a WOW! 5/5

    By GulliHelga
    The GP MAX gives a fantastic twist to my DIY TV show!
  • Bait & Switch This is the same Junk on Fusion 360 1/5

    By Singing Chicken
    Bought this new Max touting that it stiches on the fly and saves in mp4 format. Truth is it STILL USES EXTERNAL SOFTWARE. SOFTWARE THEY DO NOT UPDATE. Spent $700 on a fusion, 1.5 years later the renderer doesn't work. Bought a fusion but they don't tell you you need a file exporter software to transfer or the go pro app just that requires you to still convert files. The camera should just export to MP4. Especially if you plan on discontinuing every crappy software you fail to ever support.
  • Works well 5/5

    By Brett Vaughn (CBVTV)
    Easy to use and adjust views.. edit into different sequences and export pro res 422 and then use in final cut
  • fusion 1/5

    By Mealphapig
    GoPro decided to not update software for use with the GoPro fusion camera. They ended support for a relatively new, fairly expensive camera. Fusion Studio no longer works on MacOS. They do not stand by their consumers.
  • Reframe photos don't work 1/5

    By valky2
    Reframe a video- and try to export a still image of the reframe- you get a blank file
  • Super Slow 1/5

    By poesayyyayayayay
    Super hard to edit 360 footage Always crashes needs a lower export rate. kukkest camera
  • Needs to fiX batch export 5/5

    By aceguintu73
    I would like to edit gopro max 360 footages on final cut pro x. Please fix so i can give a better score
  • Great Desktop App 5/5

    By DaveNOTDavid
    Does everything I need, keep it up!
  • Best GoPro MAX Camera Ever!!! 5/5

    By NatetheGoProman
    This GoPro MAX Camera is the best camera I've used so far!
  • What happened? 1/5

    By vhoth
    This viewer is terrible. It can't render, it has ZERO features, and crashes constantly. What happened to the barely useable Studio ? It could at least make cuts easily.
  • .360 1/5

    By Stitch Jones
    That fact that your Quick and Player apps for Mac can't / don't recognize or allow a user to access the 360 files for import or editing is mind-boggling. It's incredible how inconvenient the process is for accessing footage.
  • NO Bluetooth 2/5

    By no no no... no.??
    no bluetooth doesent work on mac book air
  • So Now What??? 1/5

    By Hero 9 Bud
    I bought a new M1 Mac Mini and a new Hero 9. The GoPro does not support my M1 MAC. GoPro customer support seemed to know less about the M1 than I do. Lots of calls. Finally I was told GoPro is working on software updates because there is no support for M1 processor. Viewing and editing on my Iphone 11 is not an option, so the camera sits. Update: GoPro wants to know which viewer I am using so I can update this review. I'M NOT USING ANY VIEWER-per instructions from your tech. You are great at SELLING, but when will you have an M1 optimized APP for my Mac descktop?? This is what GoPro shared with me in response to the issue on 01-04-2021 03:20 AM Re: GoPro iOS app on M1 Mac (Apple Silicon)? [ New ] @redstorm70148 Yes I'm sorry, GoPro App isn't supported on M1 for now, but it's something we're hoping to tackle soon. But , buyers like me only find out AFTER THE SALE. What a great way to move product GoPro. Nicely played. This would be a 0 if that score was supported
  • Wont open 1/5

    By Bluraydad
    Downloaded the app onto my MacBook Air and it wont open. I click on the app and it says its open but nothing pops up.
  • So fun to efited in here. 4/5

    By @Nonstopadventures
    Fun editing, easy and fast. App did crash random only me twice but besides that, works good.
  • go pro max 2/5

    By seashellls
    Lots of glitches fpr gppromax
  • 4k Pro Res Exports on M1 5/5

    By zaneenders
    this app screams on M1 <3 thank you so much for supporting it!
  • Not Great for GoPro Max 1/5

    By Scoobydooby11million
    After finally getting the imports to show, the editing on this player is still so bad. I tried an export at the highest setting and it's still awful. It looks nice on my phone app, but this desktop one is awful. I'll try to do more research, but after a few hours a day trying to get some decent footage with this app, i have to leave just 1 star.
  • Doesnt work 1/5

    By BP2031
    Tried this out, but had trouble playing videos. If they would play, they would be choppy and alternate between red screen and the shot. I uninstalled the app and used Quicktime and had no issues viewing the videos.
  • Easy editing tho.... 4/5

    By vaughn production
    Needs a few cool/basic features added like um...SLOMO.. come on man! also dont know how to save a project to come back to editing later...lame...otherwise super cool and easy to edit 360 footage.

    By fud57lo46d4o7lf6;vpg6
  • Not that good and extremely greedy 2/5

    By monokrome
    This player isn't very good while it also obsessively takes over default player for MP4 files, which is an absolutely horrible decision. Uninstalling.
  • I am having very good control on 360 movies on Mac only 5/5

    By Cosmosist
    I want to give my complain that I can not use 360 video editing software of GoPro Max on Windows 10 Pro. It starts and then shots off. Is there any help on that. I am happy on my MacBook yet
  • Mac Mini M1 with GP MAX 5/5

    By chrisivie
    Flawless rendering and fast too! Also any tips on how to fix a scratched lens? I used toothpaste but only helped a little lol thanks!
  • does the job, poor feature set 3/5

    By Baron Quotidien
    for a company with such a significant market penetration, it's a shame of the companion software. yes, you can cut and edit and export, yet competition is way above with object tracking, automatic leveling and preview quality. it's as if the export software were and afterthought.
  • Preview buggy after latest update 1/5

    By hm2140
    After the latest update, preview for editting is unseful on a Mac. Video is constaly glitching and skipping. Someimtes all you see is a green pattern. and it makes getting that initial cut impossible. Exported file looks good, but sometimes you can tell if you edited the angles right till after export.
  • confusing.. 2/5

    By vilhelmtheslayer
    I download it, click open and it opens my finder with nothing new, its just my finder showing app or program to work on vids. If i double click a vid off the Sandisk it opens and looks like a gopro app but has no special controls...whats up?
  • Thank you 5/5

    By Randy Gresham
    I really enjoy the great variety of great video clips that are free to download!
  • Good preview need controls to FF and REW 4/5

    By Dino NY & Miami
    I really like the frame by frame movement to get an image capture, but there are times when you need to go towards the end of a clip and the only way I can see to do it is to advance the "frame bar" at the bottom.
  • Worst 1/5

    By MyTeacher100
    I am here trying to make something and this doent even work
  • Won't even open files recorded in the past 1/5

    By jwvanderbeck
    What kind of crap is this? I have some old GoPro recordings from a few years ago, and this won't even open them! So all my videos are now unreadable. Thanks GoPro! Won't ever buy from them again.
  • so hard to store and manage the files that won't even share anyway !! 1/5

    By lchbomb
    not user friendly at all, it only makes it worse when all the tutorial vid's they empha out about how easy it does it self, but not one of em says what ta do when it doesn't do it istself, files going all over my mac, automatic almost like an infection, lol and what about connecting devices is that a joke I have stuff ta do and my phone cam to do it with way qiuicker and it sounds better !!! and yeah I tried to get help from your button but again I don't have that kinda time, in fact that sums up your gopro it is a fun thing to fidgit with when have time to FIDGIT !!!! P.S. Almost every vid that I WAS able to finally share, had an awful sputter to it !!
  • NoProGo 1/5

    By BoneheadApp
    Not enough documentation.
  • What a disapointment 1/5

    By Timbolation
    App for Iphone works awesome on GoPro 9 then when I tried the GoPro out on my $4,500 MacBookPro, I was sadly disapointed!!! Why in the world wouldn't they make the App for the Mac exactly like the App for the Iphone??!!! I honestly expected it to be a much better and a more feature filled experience on the Mac than a Iphone! I was sorely wrong. Please GoPro programers, spend more time on the Mac App!!!!!
  • Fails to even open 1/5

    By Cybot iPhone
    Downloaded to my new Macbook pro and it opens some unrelated file in my download folder. Why? Is there a fix for this?
  • does nothing 5/5

    By asssssddddf
  • The price is right 4/5

    By From funny to mean
    The file sizes are huge and no way to modify them. It is a three step process to get these usable. It is best if you have Adobe Premier or Final Cut Pro to actually use these clips.
  • wonky at best 1/5

    By kburkitt77
    This app would be cool, if it were more like iMovie. Cutting, editing, and trimming is very difficult and there is no way to drop/mute audio. The app takes some time to get used to, but it feels loosely developed and hard to use. A few editing features would be nice. I really don't like how you have to pre-cut the clip before you begin. Very short-sited. Overall, this app has potential but it is very frustrating to use, especially if you are used to using Premier or FCP. This is NOT feature rich. For now this will do. It may be a great way to create a preview edit for a full-scale NLE, but I wouldn't rely on using this for much more than what it is.
  • Very Choppy 2/5

    By Wrangler7285
    Unusable 2015 macbook pro. Unable to view video's must use quicktime player
  • doesn't work after installing 1/5

    By mistablu06
    doesn't work. i've installed, uninstalled, reinstalled.....etc.... when i open the app, all i get is a finder pop up not even the app. how do i fix this?
  • Can't rotate video. 1/5

    By brubakrn
    The only thing you can do with this app is trim the video.
  • So fun to use! 5/5

    By steve fortunato
    This player/editor has really unlocked my Max footage! I spend so much time editing different keyframed video in the Reframe tool. They have come a long way with some improvements to view controls, horizon leveling, and the batch export is a huuge step forward.
  • Replaces quicktime as default player 1/5

    By Vintage Racer
    Why does the GoPro app become the default player? completeley annoying please fix this.
  • App is not so great 1/5

    By BVanz
    I like that you can key frame but it is missing a lot of important features like merging 360 videos, controlling the audio track, etc.
  • go pro player 4/5

    By luisramirez17
    the app works great just was hoping you can also but stickers on here like in the gopro app.
