Videos missing - can't add them either

Help on issues you run into with LapTimer; in case you have a question on how to use LapTimer, use the forum "Using LapTimer" instead

Re: Videos missing - can't add them either

Ok, thanks, that seems to be working, to some extent...

Overlay a video, although there are some factor that made it difficult:
- GoPro videos are around 15 minutes long, after that, it closes the file and continues the same video in a new file.
- The lap in question was at minute 24something, therefore I had to some math to estimate where my lap ended in reference to both videos.
- I managed to estimate somewhat, and did the export with overlay, but seems to be slightly off.

I guess I will call it a conclusion, since it has taken much more time that I had assigned to this 'project'.

What should I do different in the future to avoid this? Any advice?

Join the fragments the HERO is generating before copying the video to LapTimer. Search for "Handbrake" on the net, it allows you to do this and it is free. Both your smartphone and LapTime can handle video files bigger than 4 GB, the HERO doesn't.
