Re: hero 5 video loop only records 1 minute even when camera says 5 minutes, 20 minutes, etc.

Hi @steveg4

 

See chaptering information: 

  • Chapter size with Looping set to 5 min: 1 minute
  • Chapter size with Looping set to 20 min and above:  5 minutes

The interval determines the approximate length of video that you'll have after you stop recording. Though you only see a one-minute video(on the camera)- you should see the reset of the video files when you access the files through a computer.

 

For additional reference: How Does Looping Work?

 

I hope this helps.

 

 

Thanks!

Hi @quickcliff7362,

 

Where are you playing back that content? What SD Card are you using? 

 

Cheers,

I have the same issue.  SD card is 128 GB and is empty.  Set loop to 5 minutes and only records 1 minute
