My kids turned me on to the GoPro last year. I thought it was for the extreme sports enthusiast. Little did I know how true and untrue that is! You could spend hours surfing the video channel on YouTube enjoying the crazy, and intense footage people are making with their GoPros.
It’s not surprising that back in April 2014, GoPro was listed by Adweek as one of the “Top 10 Best Brand Channels on YouTube” based on a combination of views, shares, comments and overall engagement.
If you want to install GoPro Studio on OSX 10.6.8, then an older version is necessary. I have found out that version 188.8.131.52 is compatible the OSX version installed on your Macbook. I recommend using the direct download URL posted below in order to work with it. Gopro studio free download - GoPro Studio, DAZ Studio, konekt for GoPro, and many more programs.
How to Leverage GoPro
If anyone is doing social media right, it’s GoPro. Super impressive. As a small business, how do you leverage this social media success?
Assuming you have shot your video (or strapped your GoPro to your dog):
First Stop: Editing
Tool: GoPro Studio. Free app. Use to view and edit videos on a PC or Mac. It also lets you add titles, music, and basic transitions to your project.
Pro Note: GoPro cameras create MP4 files. Many editing programs that support that format also work with GoPro files.
Second Stop: Uploading Videos
1 – How to Upload Long-form Video to YouTube and Vimeo
There is no option to upload and publish directly to sites like YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, etc., but you can export video files from GoPro Studio and then upload them to the site of your choosing. In fact, GoPro Studio even has export preset specifically for YouTube and Vimeo which really simplifies the process! Here’s how:
2 – If you want to share a file exported from GoPro Studio
First, you will need to edit down your video in GoPro Studio so that it is the desired length. Once you have edited your video, follow these steps:
- In Studio, go to Step 3: Export.
- In the Preset setting, select ‘Mobile’. This configuration uses settings which are preferred by most sharing services.
- Choose where you want to save your file and press Export.
- Email the new message to yourself. Open your email service. Create a new email message, attach the exported video as an attachment, and then send the email.
- If the file is too large or you prefer to use another service to send the file, there may be other apps that can transfer the file from your computer to your mobile device, such as Dropbox.
- On your mobile device, open your mail app and open the message you sent.
- Download the video file to your camera roll.
- Open the sharing app you are using (YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, etc.).
- Upload the file to your feed.
- Use the video feed for example from YouTube and add it to dlvr.it. Dlvr.it will instantly share your GoPro videos across your social media channels.

3 – How to Upload GoPro Videos to Instagram
First Stop: Editing. Video on Instagram can be 3 to 15 seconds long.
Tool:Squaready for Video. Free app. Allows you to post entire videos on Instagram without Square cropping.
4 – Uploading to Instagram from an iPhone
*If you are using an Android device, unfortunately, the Android version of Instagram is temporarily not working properly with GoPro videos. The issue should be resolved shortly.
If you are using iOS, to get video from the GoPro App to Instagram using an iPhone, you can follow these steps:
- Launch the app after you recorded your video.
- Select Connect and Control.
- Download either the High Resolution or Low Resolution of the video to your smartphone or tablet’s camera roll.
- Download an app that can access your camera roll trim the length of your video while keeping the wide angle perspective. See the tool “Squaready for Video” mentioned above.
- Now go ahead and trim the clip to the desired length. For example, Instagram requires video clips to be 3-15 seconds long.
- Upload your video.
Bonus: Take away the difficulty of sharing outside the GoPro environment
Tool:dlvr.it. Use dlvr.it to go from:
GoPro > Instagram > dlvr.it > Social routes (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
Pro Tip: After uploading your video to one place (example: YouTube, Instagram, Vimeo), dlvr.it can distribute it to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Tumblr and more.

A couple of months ago GoPro confirmed the end-of-life for its free video editor Studio. A quick look at GoPro community forums shows that the news made most talked about action camera owners confused and frustrated. In this post we’ll clarify what exactly happened, and what you should do, depending on which user category you fall into.
What happened to GoPro Studio?
It may not be the most pleasant piece of news to read, but Studio has reached its end-of-life for support. Studio video editor used to appear as an add-on to Quik – the software you download to extract media files from a GoPro camera, store and organize them on your computer. Quik allows for some very basic editing – such as trimming files – yet, it was Studio you’d rely on for a more complex post-production process. Technically, from now on Studio isn’t bundled with Quik, so GoPro owners are left with no official video editing software to use. The update is effective since the latest Quik version 2.4 release, and if you haven’t downloaded it yet – this is a heads-up!
According to The GoPro Studio End-Of-Life FAQ, for now Studio will continue to be supported as normal, although, there is no link officially provided to download the software from GoPro website.
Who should be concerned with the update?
If you have an older version of Quik already installed and running on your PC or Mac, technically, you can enjoy Studio as long as you want. It’s the updated version of Quik (2.4) comes Studio-free, so as long as you don’t install it, you have no reason to worry about losing the video editor you’re used to.
It comes down to three groups of people who might be interested in reading this post further: new GoPro owners, those who unknowingly updated Quik, and current GoPro owners who had their computers repaired and all the software removed or reinstalled. Whether you’re a Windows or a Mac user falling into one of these categories, below are your options.
Option 1. Use free video editors recommended by GoPro technical support team
On GoPro community forums as well as on “The GoPro Studio End-Of-Life FAQ” page, Mac users are suggested using iMovie for editing their footage, while Windows users are recommended to download VSDC Free Video Editor. Both are free non-linear video editors capable of quite a few advanced post-production tricks. Let’s take a closer look at the suggested solutions.
Windows users: VSDC Free Video Editor
For a free piece of software, VSDC provides quite a powerful feature-set hidden in an old-school looking interface. You can perform basic video editing – cutting, merging, rotating and cropping files, – as well as much more complicated tasks, such as precise zooming, speed setting, and gradient color correction.
VSDC works with most popular video formats and processes 4K and HD. For those of you willing to keep maximum footage quality, it allows for choosing H.265 video codec on the output.
Can U Download Gopro Studio To A Macbook
Key pro: unlike many professional programs, VSDC has low system requirements and runs smoothly even on PCs with limited resources.
Key con: video stabilization feature is only available as a part of paid PRO version. It is $19,99 per year, which is still fairly cheap compared to similar solutions on the market.
Mac users: iMovie Video Editor
It’s certainly a great advantage that iMovie is available and synchronized on all your Apple devices, so you can literally start a project on a smartphone and continue it on a Mac. iMovie provides most features a video editing enthusiast might need, and allows for adding voice to your footage, stylish text titles and few popular effects – such as split screen or picture-in-picture.
It also supports HD and 4K resolution editing on Mac has a minimum of 4GB RAM, enables you to stabilize shaky footage and perform color correction.
Key Pro: iMovie is already pre-installed on Macs, it has an intuitive interface and a decent feature-set.
Key Con: surprisingly, iMovie has issues with importing and processing MP4 files, which is one of the most popular video formats today. That means opening a file may require an extra video conversion step and involve 3rd party apps.
Option 2. Find a reliable source to download older versions of Studio
As mentioned above, GoPro team is unable to provide official links for downloading Studio separately – which of course makes sense after the end-of-life announcement. Yet, if you flatly refuse to invest your time into getting familiar with new video editors, we encourage you to look for reliable software directories and try downloading older versions of Studio to your computer, while they are still widely available.
In the process of research for this post, we’ve stumbled upon few links published by GoPro owners willing to share Studio installation files from their computers. Even though it is indeed very nice on a personal level, please be advised that it is usually safer to download software from well-know and reputable sources, such as CNET Downloads, Softpedia,TechSpot or Major Geeks. All these directories have Studio 2.0 or 2.5 versions available for download.
Option 3. Look for other great free video editors to edit your footage
If for some reason you dismiss VSDC and iMovie, there are several alternatives out there to check out! Here are three crossplatform solutions optimized for working in both – Mac and Windows worlds. They are enumerated according to their complexity levels.
- ShotCut – an open-source tool with a clean minimalistic interface and drag’n’drop file manager features. Perfect for basic video editing, precise trimming, capturing video and audio.
- Hitfilm Express – a medium-level NLE focused on effects. The free version provides a sufficient tool-set, extra features are available as paid plugins.
- Davinci Resolve – the beast of color correction with comparatively high system requirements. Undoubtedly, the best free program if you’re shooting on a professional level.
What have you chosen to use instead of Studio? Or have you decided to stick to the 2.5 version available in software directories?
