    Has anyone use this one? Is it safe?

    VLC keeps having issues with not playing properly 4K HEVC recordings.
    Windows Media Player (I am using Windows 8.1) only plays the sound.

    I found this at the GoPro site.... I've highlighted/underlined the specific detail statements.

    What are the limitations with HEVC on a computer?
    Playing Media on Unsupported Operating Systems
    If your computer isn’t running Windows 10 / macOS High Sierra or newer, you will not be able to play HEVC files. Quik for desktop will still copy HEVC files to your computer, but they won’t appear in the Quik for desktop Media gallery. Also, third-party apps won’t be able to play HEVC files.

    Playing Media on Supported Operating Systems, but Older Computers
    While Windows 10 / macOS High Sierra supports HEVC, your computer must use a newer processor to play those files smoothly. Quik for desktop will still copy HEVC files to your computer, but those files may struggle to play back. In general, computers manufactured before 2016 may not handle HEVC files well. See the partial list of supported computers/processors above.

    Yeah, no worries, my next main PC is going to be an Apple computer anyway.
