I haven't dug to deep into this yet but pretty much every flight my P4 does the beep and then just stops video recording on its own? It can happen multiple times during a flight.
There's no problems just pushing record again and start over but it's pretty annoying...
It's the same SD card I used in my old P3a bit this never happened on the P3.
Anyone have a clue?

Try reinstalling DJI GO.
I'm using Go 2.8 on a Nexus 7 2013 and 3.1 on a Nexus 6p with the same result :S
Used the N7 with the same version on the P3a without problems.
I'll try with a different SD card next time to begin with :)

Does it stop recording after 15 seconds each time?

Format the SD card in the Phantom and see if this solves the issue.

It's different every time, it can be 5sec or 5min :p Yeah I'll try to format in the P4 but I think I did that already.

Formatted the card in the P4 today, didn't help.
Will try a different SD card as the next step!

Just tried a different SD card and it worked perfect! So it seems like the P4 needs a better card than the P3a :p

There is a setting on recording lengrh in mb somewhere in the dji go app it defaults to 4mb i think and can be changed.

4 millibits (4 mb) wouldn't even record a single frame of video. The Phantom will normally stop recording after 4 GB (gigabytes), then will start recording again. OP: glad you got it figured out.

@KCBadger - just giving you some grief, no offense intended.
