Anybody have a clue why my video comes out "choppy", by that I mean it runs a few seconds and stops and then starts again. I've tried dropping the resolution enabling and disabling the cache. I even reverted to reset on the camera and I still get the same result. This started after the 3rd or 4th flight I shot and it is a little perplexing, and annoying.
I have ironed out the prior issues, and this remains.
One other question that maybe someone knows, ...Why can't I access my flight logs and pictures/videos from my DJI forum login, it would seem they should be one in the same.
Thanks in advance

The issue shows in playback, I did format the card when I installed it and have maybe 20 minutes on it. The first recording or two were great then the stuttering started. I was thinking about a reformat or whether if the card was "fast" enough for the load, I'm not currently trying to do cinematic work, just rooftop inspections, but a nice smooth recording is desired.
And yea I had a feeling the world had to go through the DJI GO App, it would be nice if I could run the app on my OSX mac, little touch screens are not my friends!

Did you ever get the problem resolved? I have the same issue. I first thought it was signal but it does it at close range on live feed and in playback.

First: what resolution is containing in the video on the card and what format? 2K7 in mov or mp4?
2nd: how much free space was on card ?
3rd: What computer was reading the video file you wanted to watch?
4th: did you reformat the card in the copter yet to avoid the fragmentation of the memory inside?

Hi and thanks for the help I use Macs on osx High sierra, I was running at both 2.7 and 1080 with the same results, as for the free space it is a 64gb card and was mostly empty. I have formatted the card again and still notice the issue. I've also noticed that the gimbal is slow to react to flight attitude changes. I was working in MP4. I've also noted that if I am trying to edit in iMovie the "playhead" jumps from frame to frame when the choppy playback is occurring. I'm actually beginning to think I have a camera issue and not a setup issue.

My similar problem was caused because my computer could not play the 4K video. I lowered the quality and it plays fine though at lower resolution. Might try that.
Good luck

Thanks but since my standard only has 2.7K that is unlikely. However now I am getting patches of white and black stripes in my feed.

Did you copy the mp4 file to the Mac´s hard drive and did the play back of the video yet? May be the card reader is a bottle neck for higher speed for reading the file.
