GoPro Studio: import of video files doesn’t work – how to fix it

Diesen Beitrag gibt es auch in Deutsch!

Today I had the strange problem that I couldn’t import the MP4 video files of my GoPro into the GoPro Studio any more. No matter if I used drag&drop or the „import new files“ button, I could see the „Loading…“ overlay flickering shortly, but no file was added to the list of imported clips on the left.

First I thought that the files I recorded yesterday might have been corrupted for any reason, albeit them being played back in VLC or Windows Media Player without any problems, because older files worked just fine. Then I tried to import them directly from the GoPro connected to the PC – and Ta-da! – it worked. I copied the files over from the GoPro again, thinking that the files had been corrupted during the copying process – but that didn’t work out. As a last attempt I renamed the directory of the files on my computer – and it worked!

Turns out, GoPro studio doesn’t like special characters like German umlauts in the directory or file name! Brackets seem to work, but put any of the characters „äüöß“ (also tried the Spanish ñ and Swedish ø, as well as accented letters, so I guess it’s about any non-latin character) in the file name, and GoPro Studio won’t import the video.

Problem solved. :-)
