The company Google has rid the fresh operating system Android 11 from the outdated restrictions on the size of video clips. However, as it turned out, in the branded application Google Camera still uses a certain limit.
Already in beta version of the Android 11 it became known that the limit of 4 GB on the size of video clips shot and supported files of larger size. However, in Google Camera and other popular video recording applications developers continued to use the limit, not having time to rebuild.
With the release of the stable version of Android 11 enthusiasts decided to find out how it is now. As it turned out, in Google Camera big videos continue to break down into several files.
However, one big video now crumbles into files not 4 GB, as it happens in Android 10, and 10 GB. Thus, in one file can fit 33 minutes of video with a resolution of 4K at a speed of 30 f / s, whereas previously this parameter was 13 minutes. In another application, Open Camera, the author of AndroidPolice manually stopped recording, when the file size reached 38 GB. In Filmic Pro videos are still broken down into 4 GB.
Complaints about the restriction began to appear already in 2015. And since then, developers have regularly raised this issue with Google. 64-bit file systems can well cope with files up to 16 TB. However, the API from the time of 32-bit Android forced developers to limit themselves to 4 GB, forcing them to split the videos into several files.
