Make DJI OSMO Action 3 files proxy friendly

Hey Folks!
I just recently went for DJI’s Action 3 cameras and found out that Kdenlive literally refuses to create proxy clips. But, it creates its own version of LRV files named LRF.
It would be very much nice of there could be a DJI setting for external clips also for the DJI.

A workaround is to use the Akaso LRV setting for proxy clips and rename them to *.LRV.

Or, like I had to do as I didn’t save the LRF files to begin with. I ran the following command before starting the project to create proxies:
for f in *.MP4; do ffmpeg -y -threads 8 -i $f -vf scale=-1:720 -preset veryfast -f mp4 "${f%.MP4}.LRV"; done

Thanks for sharing your solution or workaround.

Just in case, would you mind creating a bug report in and ask for a [Feature Request] for proxy clips for DJI’s Action 3 cameras? If you could attach a small video recorded with that camera so the devs can analyze it that would be great. Thanks!

Absolutely! Will record something short and hand it over. :+1:

There is already this bug report about a very similar issue. Maybe you can piggy back …

Just committed some additional GOPR as external proxy option. Try with tomorrows daily build.


Can’t find any Debian based nightly build?
Here’s at least a snapshot from the mem card. All work fine with the Akaso trick above
