    Android 11 may finally remove the silly video size limit
    Have you ever had this happen to you: you record a long video on your phone, then go back to check it out and you discover it has been split in two or more clips? Or, worse but much more rare, the phone just stopped recording at some point? Well, you see, Android has a size limit on the videos it records — 4 GB is the absolute maximum. That's why our handsets have to work around this by cutting a long video into clips.

    To put it in perspective, you need a bit more than 10 minutes of 4K video to hit that 4 GB threshold. So, it may have not been an issue for most users in their daily life, but if you are trying to record a long event like a sports match, a birthday present unpacking, or if you are dreaming of shooting short movies with your phone, it will rear its ugly head. If you want to, you can stitch the clips together via an app or by uploading them to your computer and using software of choice. But yeah, this takes will and time.

    Well, this minor annoyance may be gone come Android 11. The folks over at XDA Developers have been doing what they do best — poking around Android code — and they've found an interesting line that supposedly addresses this very issue.

    It's a commit in the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) gerrit, which states that Android will use a 64 bit offset in mpeg4writer (as opposed to 32 bit previously). This should raise the limit "considerably", though no exact ceiling is given. In one test, Google was able to record a single 32 GB video without a hitch. In another, the phone's entire capacity was filled with a single video, not clipped at any point.

    So, video buffs, rejoice! 4K is about to become that much more viable.

    Xperia never had this limit. Old generations recorded until heat was too much, newer record until device has battery/storage.

    I know you are a Sony fan, but even the most hardcore Sony fanboys acknowledge the fact that Sony phones(I'm not sure about their 2019 flagships) almost never make it beyond the 5 mins mark, because the camera app will crash due to overheating.

    It was solved since XZ Premium ....... Mine has Snap 810, but I was able to record few times over 15 min.

    Of course you did, I guess all those reviewers and actual users on XDA are out to get Sony with them lying about this.

    It was cold day. I do not deny that on hot days the warning shows up in 2 minutes and shuts app down withing 3 or 4 min. On colder days, the phone can resist much more.

    Right, but 4k is not that bad. 4k60fps is what kills the phone and storage

    vgking9699, if you read the article with your eyes opened, you will clearly see that it is a software limitation, not hardware.

    Go to Youtube search "4K Heat Test" from Phone Battles you will realize that some Sony phones are capable of recording more than 4GB for more than 5 minutes and Xperia XZ Premium can even record 4K video for more than 1 hours.

    I wondered if this was still a thing. Most of my videos lately are short enough now they don’t encroach 4gb. So a whole year more before this is fixed?

    I usually use 1080/60 in 10 minute clips or less. I got burned before filming my son’s concert when the time or size limit hit and the file corrupted. I lost 30 minutes of footage for him. So now I chop it in between sets or whatever assuming I might get hosed again.

    It's because they use Fat32, some devices use exFat and don't run into this issue.

    That’s also a compressed format and won’t look as good as videos on iPhones And also on androids you are limited on what you do with the video once it is recorded You can’t text a full 4K video to another android cuz of androids texting file size limits where as you can iMessage huge video sizes to other Apple devices or send even larger files through airdrop
