Why are the videos on TBA cut off at the end game

I been looking at a few of our matches from the Minnesota 10K Lakes Regional. It seems that every match cuts off with 30 seconds left of the match. Is there a copy writes reason for this?

Several matches at LA don’t start until about 5 seconds into autonomous, so it may just be a timing issue or settings in a splitting program.

I have noticed this as well. I hope someone that would know responds.

Its probably just a timing issue or something of that nature as the match videos start well before the match starts and then ends before the match ends.

Do your match videos have that problem here?

The match videos are cut out of a constant stream, so it’d be a video splitting problem.

Yes, same issue.

Check the original Twitch stream here:

These can be found for all Regional events linked from:

Then the webcast links at the top of the event page.

If I had to guess, this is because that FMS publishes two timestamps with each match: actualStartTime and postResultTime- this is likely what the automated video splitting program uses. If the clock is a little off on the field server or there is some other synchronization error with the video stream, something like this could potentially happen.

That being said, I don’t have specific firsthand knowledge of the program FIRST is using to split match videos, so i can’t say why for sure.

The FIRST video system has a direct connection to the FMS. I’m pretty sure it’s using push notifications.

you can put your team’s video of the game on TBA also. I have many. Also, often I think mine are better because they don’t have the camera cuts just when you want to see something happen.
