Uploading a video clip

You can save gameplay as a video clip. Video clips can then be shared with other players by uploading them to online services.

Saving a video clip

Video of the most recent 15 minutes of gameplay is continuously and automatically recorded. You can save gameplay as a video clip, in either of the following ways.

  • Press the SHARE button, and then press the square button.
  • Press the SHARE button, and then select [Save Video Clip].
  • Some games contain scenes that cannot be recorded. The maximum 15 minutes of gameplay that are saved as a video clip do not include scenes in which video cannot be recorded. An icon appears in the upper left corner of the screen at the start and end of these scenes.
  • When you know the scene you want to save, press the SHARE button twice at the start of the scene, and then press the SHARE button again twice at the end of the scene. If you do not press the SHARE button at the end of the scene, recording will continue until you reach the maximum length allowed by your video clip settings, and then the video clip will be saved.
  • To change settings for video clips and uploads, select (Settings) > [Sharing and Broadcasts].
