“I’ve been trying to burn my GoPro Hero3 Black video to DVDs that can be played on any DVD player. I’ve got Windows 7 OS on my computer and the Windows programs (Win DVD Maker, Movie Maker) won’t accept the GP videos. Does the video format of the GP videos need to be changed to something that Windows will accept before I can burn a DVD ? Is there an after market program that will allow me to do the DVD burning?”
