Looping is now set but now recording is only 60 seconds. Hero 4 Silver

It leaves multiple 60 second clips only in continous recording. I wanted to have 5 minutes only when I stopped it. I can't find any settings. (I also upgraded the firmware). The GoPro was working fine before I tried to set up looping.

I thought when I quit recording I would see the last 5 minutes, and not see anything else.

Re: Looping is now set but now recording is only 60 seconds. Hero 4 Silver

Ah, that was it. I had a hard time understanding Chaptering. I then did an experiment where I stopped and started it at various times. I sorted the 1 minute videos and saw that they broke down into 5 - 1 minute clips (I am set up for the 5 minute Looping) for each time I stopped it. Once I saw it formatted it like the attached picture, I could see it better that I would only get a chapter when I presses the stop recording button.

Thanks,
