Video stored on cloud starts later than video stored in Ring App (Floodlight Cam Wired Pro)

There seems to be a bug with how Ring is uploading the videos to the cloud when there multiple Answered Motion (Person) for a video.

My Floodlight Cam Wired Pro camera caught activity that I was able to view in real time (Answered) on the Ring app very clearly.

I exited the answered video and returned to the video a couple seconds later.

The ‘Event History’ in the Ring app shows that there were 2 ‘Answered Motion (Person)’ events for this camera at 9:20 am.

The first video starts at 9:20:18 until I left the app at 9:20:36.

The second video starts when I return the the app at 9:20:32 until 9:21:59

When I tried to send a copy of the first video via the Ring cloud link (ring.com/share/…), here’s what the timestamp says for the first video:
start time: 4/25/2023 09:20:32 CDT
end time: 4/25/2023 09:21:59 CDT

It omitted the first few seconds and essentially uploaded a copy of the second video to the cloud.

When I tried sending a video of the second ‘Answered Motion (Person)’ video which starts at 9:20:32, the ring app generates completely different links for these 2 videos , however, the video is the same, with the same timestamp as mentioned above:
start time: 4/25/2023 09:20:32 CDT
end time: 4/25/2023 09:21:59 CDT

I can still view the footage of the first Answered Motion (Person) in the Ring app (the video which starts at 9:20:18 until 9:20:36), however, not only is the cloud storage of this video incorrectly replacing it with the later video, I am also not able to download it because the download just gives me the second video which starts at 9:20:32.

The video is technically not lost (since it’s viewable on my phone’s Ring app only to me), but it’s impossible to download/share this using Ring.

Is there a fix for this?
