Play GoPro camera video on DVD Player

GoPro cameras are applied to record the extreme sports and adventurous activities in high video quality. But what is annoying you is that you cannot play Gopro camera videos on DVD Player.

Why won’t Gopro camera video play on DVD Player?

The issue is that GoPro cameras typically do not record using friendly formats for DVD player. Regular standalone DVD players can only read movie DVD’s (those are in MPEG-2, ). Newer DVD players that are DivX-certified can (in addition to the above) read data CD’s or data DVD’s with an AVI file encoded in the DivX codec. But different video resolution options 4k, 2.7k, 1080p, 720p, WVGA that the HERO camera captured are recorded in "H.264 codec, MP4 file format”. You do take you chances with a camera that records video in a format that not certificated by DVD players.
