It was not always like this many of my plays are less than 5 seconds
To be honest, I'm not entirely sure. A minimum of 5 seconds has been the standard for a while now. So I am unsure how you were able to make <5 seconds clips. If you manage to recreate it, you're welcome to let us know.
Interesting. That was uploaded last month, and I know if you were able to upload a clip lower than 5 seconds, it was way before that time. What type of recording method did you use? Automatic or Manual Recording?
I don't see any videos that are posted which are below 5 seconds. Do you have a link that shows a video that is under 5 seconds?
