    For some reasons when I'm recording a 15-20 video when it transfers to the DJI go library it's broken down into 1:35, 2:06, :45 segments.
    Do I have something set wrong?

    Can you elaborate a little? The question is difficult to understand.

    It's always broken up into segments instead of one long video?

    I'm guessing you need to format your SD card as exFat. Fat has a file limit size of 4GB, so the camera breaks long recording sessions into 4GB chunks. Just a guess though, I've never shot a continuous video.

    This is on the DJI Go App. Check out your video on your SD Card. Should find a bigger file.

    With recording at 4k on P3 pro and recording continuously, it make piece of up to 4 GB for a video duration of about 9 minutes. So usually you get 2, maximum 3 files for a given flight.
    With P3 adv recording at 1080p, the file is always bellow the 4GB limit and is recorded as one file.
