    what video player are you using? do you have the hero8 set for hevc encoding only or h264 and hevc? the 8 defaults to hevc iirc so if you use older software that doesn't support h265, it won't display

    it sounds like you are shooting in a video mode that uses HEVC and you don’t have the codec required to view your video. You can purchase the codec direct from Microsoft for a buck at the following link: Buy HEVC Video Extensions - Microsoft Store
