Truncation For Videos?

Hi SI Team

here: setting stream>activity stream>layout>truncate content = 1000
(I believe this is broken any way: https://stackideas.com/forums/simple-trick-to-navigate-from-previous-to-next-video)

Seems like the truncation for the description was hardcoded in the videos page (with value 120 character), where caused the description(consist html code) was not rendered correctly 
But your description consist 592 character https://www.screencast.com/t/nx71Pd3aE8H
Perhaps you can go to this file:
JoomlaFolder/components/com_easysocial/themes/wireframe/videos/default/item.php
and search for the code below:



<?php echo $this->html('string.truncate', $video->getDescription(), 120);?>


Which I did and entered 300 and this worked perfectly for a number of months.

Today truncation for videos seems to work according to some random principle that I do not understand:
