PS4 Share Recording Issues

21 replies 4607 views Edited Feb 22, 2014

Hi everyone I have been having problems with my ps4 and its sharing capabilities. My issue that I am facing is that the system does not constantly record the last 15 minutes of gameplay from the ps4 and instead typically records 15 minutes of random gameplay from usually the hour earlier and saves that when I hit the share button as opposed to the most recent 15 minutes of gameplay. The screen shot taken when the share button is pressed works fine but it seems to always screw up with the recording. I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem as well or if there is any permanent fix for this issue as of yet that I am not aware of. Here is a link to a forum on another website that is discussing this very problem that I am having. http://www.playstationlifestyle.net/2013/12/26/ps4s-share-function-broken-for-some-heres-a-fix-that-...

I am mainly posting this on this forum so that  others having the same problem can voice their problems and concerns so that Sony will hopefully see them and address the problem because I am definitely not the only one that is experiencing it.

I've had the same issue for the last couple of months. It's starting to really annoy me. I thought it was fixed with one of the patches because it worked for me that day, but the next day, my PS4 returned to recording the wrong clips. I just went 18-0 on Ghosts while using specialist killstreaks but unfortunately couldn't watch the match. I hope Sony fixes this.

The only sure fire way I know to make sure that it will record when you want it to is to double click the share button which will trash the previous unsaved recording and start a new one. So to ensure you will record every match you are playing you would have to double click the share button at the beginning of every match. Its kind of a pain but that's the only way to get it work every time that I am aware of. The thing that is annoying about the whole thing is I have Google this problem and was only able to find one forum about the issue so it sounds like not enough people are being vocal about this issue which means Sony probably wont notice and fix it >=(. Hope the double clicking thing helps you though!

Double clicking doesn't always work for me. An admin on this forum said that Sony was looking into it. I'm not quite sure if this is true though.

I just got done playing battlefield for the day and went to go share my amazing moments but I was already expecting at least half of them to be recorded incorrectly. And wouldn't you know it 4 out of 5 were lost due to this issue. It used to be only one or so of my videos were lost now almost all of them are lost. One more thing. I had achieved the greatest kill I have ever in my book with a SMAW on Battlefield 4 and I went to share but guess what happened. It had been lost. Still upset about it a month later...

there is a long running post on this topic... i know there is at least 2 for sure..

 

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-4-Support/Share-button-does-not-record-last-15-mi...

 

if you check page 37 of that post you'll also see that the share feature is getting some new features in the coming week and we are all hoping that the share button also gets fixed.  until then keep tweeting the president of sony on his twitter feed at @yosp

The same thing is happening to me with all my battlefield moments. The issue has not yet been fixed. All of my clips are random times between 9 and 15 minutes. So many moments lost forever.
