Why are my titles cutoff at 10 characters. My customers cannot see video titles on the new beta site. There appears to be a limit of 10 characters in the title. Where's the details view so my customers can view the video titles.

Hi Tremcotech, 

Thank you for providing this feedback, and I apologize for the inconvenience. We've heard from a number of users that are experiencing this issue, and it is something that we will be working on improving. The Beta Library is something we are currently working on, so you will notice incremental improvements in the near future. If the current look is unworkable for you or your viewers, it may help to switch to the Classic Library for a short period of time while we work on making the improvements to the Library.

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Have a great day!

Guy

I can switch back to classic view but my customers cannot. They still see the beta view.

Any update on this yet? I have many users who record multiple takes of the same recording but do not indicate take 2 in the recording title.  Time stamps in the file name were my only way of knowing if i am working on the same video.

Hi Tremcotech and PatGilbert,

Thank you for asking! We have shipped some updates to the Beta Library, just in this morning actually, that allow an absolute minimum of 24 characters. That number however is if the thumbnail is viewed on a smaller screen size and when the largest possible character (M) is used for every character in the title. On larger monitors and with different characters, viewers will see more - up to around 42 characters. Please take a look and let us know what you think!

Have a great day!

Guy
