Video record length time

Hi all can I adjust the time length of video recording . I start to record as soon as I’m riding my scooter and then hit the stop button where ever I get to this on average takes 45 mins but when I view my footage via app there always in 17 min sections can this be reduced to shorter clips via settings

Re: Video record length time

Hello @borg26. The 17-min sections are chapters and chaptering is automatically done in the camera. This means that there is no way to change the length or duration or each section. There is more information about chaptering here for your reference.

Re: Video record length time

The file structure is such that long videos will be sectioned into what GoPro refers to as Chaptering. This cannot be changed or adjusted.
