I just got a GoPro and tried to transfer to videos to my Google Photos a account, but they appear to be “lost”. Is there a different method of uploading that I am not aware of?

Also, can I upload photos and videos and bypass Google Photos so I can go directly to a video editor?


BTW it appears that another member of yours just asked a similar question yesterday.

Bill, you can upload the videos directly from the SD card to Google Photos online, OR you can import those videos to your computer where you can edit them with GoPro’s software – Quik. At any time, you can upload from the computer to Google Photos online. 

If Quik doesn’t have enough features for you, I’d recommend Filmora. 

We demonstrated Quik in episode 147 – it was the android version but should be similar to Windows.

We haven’t done any instruction on Filmora yet, just learning it ourselves.
