    I just googled it and the there were solutions that were not hard to find. I would suggest doing the same or contacting Woodman Labs the makers of GoPro. The contact and support information needed is available on the GoPro website.

    I am not familiar with the GoPro but one of the things to try was R1,R2,R3 settings. They said that it would not read the R4 or R5 setting.

    You have answered the question yourself. The card is the wrong format. Load the card onto your machine and view the stuff via iTunes or whatever.

    I don't think it was ever stated this could be done the way you wished.

    It is h.264

    You could try a simple rename the extension to .m4v, if that doesn't work try Subler.

    I think he wants to view the videos directly from the GoPro. I do not think that we want to process the videos on a computer prior to viewing on an iPad.

    Hi yes brand you are correct.
    i can play the files from my 64gb sdxc card but only when in fat format which is no good for files bigger the 4gb!!!
    is the any way around playing it formated in Xfat on the iPad or will it just not play Xfat.
