Frosty, Did you swap between the home screen and game at some point before you hit share?

i think the share feature still has a few bugs in it for sure.. i've only used it a few times but i do recall not seeing a full 15mins of gameplay, it was more like 10mins 27secs or something random like that.. i have it all on default, i have yet to try using the double press share button method.. but yea im very sure theres still some bugs in it

Re: Share Issue

I called PS4 support and they said I might've been running out of capture space on the HDD. The associate said that the PS4 will cap at 1 hour of gameplay video and that I may have hit that causing the strange recording behavior.

I've deleted all my captures, so I will see if that fixes the issue.

I definitely think there's some bugs with the system though. For one, I wish it was more streamlined: there should be a share button configuration that allows you to capture a screenshot and the last 15 minutes of gameplay without bringing up the share menu; it is so, tedious to bring up the share menu in a multiplayer match just to capture an awesome moment that just happened.

Also, bringing up the share menu in the XMB (or whatever its called now) to edit videos and upload them, creates an unnecessary screenshot of my XMB. Before I deleted all my captures, I had so many screenshots of my XMB from when I tried to upload my videos.

I really like this feature, but it needs improvement.

i think i understand what you are saying. i didn't mean that it records in a 15 min chunk. like if i had a video for 8 min. it didn't use up a 15 min of data. what i was saying is that if i DOUBLE PRESS the share button and let it record for 25 min. the first recording will go for 15 min and the second recording will only record 10 min and only use 10 min data chunk and not the 15. i just checked the two videos i made back to back and its like half a second from end of one to beginning of second. not bad

yeah there needs to be another option or two so that it records past event without bringing up the menu. but i can see how peoples HD get filled up really fast because they didn't know they were recording because they hit the share button on accident

When i hit the share button it only saves previously played matches, never the one i'm in. games from hours prior to hitting the share button. please fix? throwing knives embarrassing players everywhere that i can't allow the world to see. Black Ops 2 had a better rendering system

Are you swapping over to the home screen between matches before you hit share?
