to record videos larger than 4 GB

According to a change spotted in the code review for Android Open Source Project (AOSP), it will soon be possible to record videos of a size of more than 4 GB with Android and on an equipped smartphone.

This limitation now seems obsolete. according to XDA Developers, recording a 4K video on a Google Pixel 4 smartphone reaches 4 GB after a dozen minutes, with a default quality of 30 frames per second and a bit rate of 48 Mbps.

After 12 minutes of 4K video recording, the camera application saves a video file and starts recording another video file, without alerting the user. A 73-minute 4K recording thus resulted in a salami sauce with seven different files.

The limitation was implemented in 2014 with classes for MediaMuxer and MPEG4Writer. The lifting of the limitation is linked to an evolution compared to work done with 32-bit files. With the change, it was possible to record video files up to 32 GB in size.

Coming soon with Android 11?
