Xbox One DVR and uploading more than 5 minutes...

Hi guys

I recorded some game play yesterday using the DVR functionality and it has recorded just over 8 minutes of footage. I initially thought it could only do up to 5 minutes as this has been the limit every other time I recorded footage but this one seems to be longer.

Basically, all the good stuff is in the last 4 minutes of the recording but when I try to edit or trim this within the upload studio it will only allow me to play with the first 5 minutes. It cuts off the last 3 - 4 minutes but when you watch the video within the DVR window it will play all 8 minutes of the recording.

Has anybody seen or experienced this before and if so can they share some knowledge in terms of how to get all the footage to edit?

Does anybody have any ideas on this?

It appears to be a restriction of upload studio not allowing to reduce the size of a clip that exceeds 5 minutes before uploading.

Dont know. Hopefully they add some update where I can record more than 5min. I want to be able to record entire 4th quarter of NBA 2k.

Anybody know why this is?  I was wondering the same thing.  I have an 8 min clip, but on the first 5 minutes is showing in Upload Studio.

Yeah there should be an auto record for 4th qtrs of NBA 2K and any other sports game.

try to edit a multi clip and select the same clip if you need the footage.

Yeah that didn't work unless I was doing it wrong.  It only pulls in the first 5 mins no matter what.
