2gb file limit workarounds
First of all, I think that CamStudio 2.6 reports the wrong file size in its main window while recording. The other night I recorded a 3.5+ hour webinar with jawror xvid. CamStudio's window reported 1gb file size. When I look in windows/temp, the filesize is 3.3gb.
- The file won't play in VLC: "The format of the file cannot be detected"
- The file cannot be opened with VirtualDub: "Invalid AVI file: LIST chunk < 4 bytes"
- If I try VirtualDub compatibility mode: "AVI Import Filter error: (?) (800440c7)'
So obviously this file is corrupt. I searched google and came across this great thread with many advices to try to fix the problem:
The solution that worked for me was to download MediaCoder. The built in player could read the file. And then I converted it to mp4 which took about a half hour and halved the file size from 3.3gb to 1.5gb
Hopefully this will help someone. Maybe Terry can add it to the some FAQ somewhere or on his site so others can find it.
