I use Handbrake on PC. It works fine. I convert Typhoon H video to be able to edit it on the free GoPro studio software.
VideoSolo Video Converter Ultimate can help you convert 4K to 1080P. You can download it to have a try. I've used it for 3 months and it never let me down.I have just got a Q500 4K.
My question is now:
Can you recommand a specific converter, so the video can be redigated and play on a normal laptop/Tv ?
I bought a 4K tv because our cable provider was supposed to start 4K broadcast. That was 4 years agoI have a smart 4K television and I've yet to see anything in 4K broadcast to it, or available through Netflix or cable. Indeed, the only times I've seen 4K stuff on it is when I shove the H480s SD card into it!
If you don't want 4k video, just change the camera settings to 1920 x 1080 30p when HD (High Definition) is desired.
I understand what you're saying. I just thought the original poster didn't want 4k, just hd.@jda IMHO that is a shortsighted view... you should always shoot in the highest resolution settings your equipment is capable of. Do you think you are never going to get a computer capable of editing and playing back 4K? If you shoot at 1080, that all you'll ever get. If you shoot at 4K and then downsample a copy to 1080, you still have the original 4k footage to use later when you upgrade your computer to 4K ready.
