Limit member video posts and recording time

You’re able to limit the length of member videos anywhere from a maximum of 15 seconds to 10 minutes. Currently, there’s no option to limit the number of videos a member can post to a topic. There are a couple options for you to moderate your topic or change your topic status to give you more control over your topic and how videos are posted:

  • Topic moderation: When you turn on topic moderation, all video responses and comments are automatically posted as "Hidden" until you make them active. While members can still post as many videos as they want, you determine which videos can be viewed by other members. Learn how to moderate your topic.
  • Hide member videos: You’re able hide individual member videos posted to the topic. Learn more about how to activate or hide videos.
  • Change topic status: You’re able to change your topic status to “View only.” Members are no longer able to post new videos to the topic. This setting is helpful after every member in the group has already posted a video. Learn how to change your topic status.

How to set recording time for your topic

By default, the maximum recording time for a member video is 1 minute 30 seconds. You’re able to adjust this time with a range of preset options from 15 seconds to 10 minutes.

  • Lead videos can exceed the maximum recording time set for the topic. The maximum length a video saved to Flipgrid can be is 10 minutes.
  • If you or a member needs to post a video longer than 10 minutes, here are a couple recommendations:
    • Record multiple videos in Flipgrid and title them as "Part 1," "Part 2," and so on.
    • To include a video on the topic page longer than 10 minutes, you can embed a single YouTube or Vimeo video, or attach links for multiple videos. Learn how to add media or attachment links.
  • The limitations are specific only to the topic. Anyone is able to create videos of 10 minutes long and save them to their “My videos.” However, if they want to post to a topic, the video length can't be longer than the maximum recording time the topic allows.
