Gear 360 (2017) recording spilts up on it's own?

First Poster

I have recently purchased my Gear 360 (2017) and am throughly enjoying it.  


I tried taking a 2 hour long video (was checking the battery life) but after turning the camera back on when I checked the recording rather than just having 1 video at 2 hours I had 12 videos at around 10 minutes each.


Is there a way to ensure any longer videos remain as 1 piece?  Have I hit a button somewhere whilst playing around with it?


Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.


Hi @Gravyboat01 great to hear you're using the new 360 camera.


The recording time can differ, depending on a few factors (FPS being shot etc). 


What were the settings you were using during the recording? The recording time is "up to 130 mins (2560 x 1280 / 30fps)"




Hi Ryan,


I hadn't changed any settings so it was still on the 2560x1280 @ 30fps.  I double checked the viewfinder with the 360 app on my Galaxy 8+ but then turned my phone off so that the bluetooth wasn't being used on the camera.


Any ideas?
