Google has revoked the long outdated limitation of Android. 4 GB is no longer the limit when shooting video
Google finally abolished the obsolete limitation of the Android operating system on file size 4GB when shooting video. Support for larger files is already available in the first beta version of Android 11.
Before smartphones have learned to shoot videos in 4K, users found it difficult to imagine that the size of the captured videos will grow to 4 GB. However, since then much has changed. When shooting 4K video at 30 frames per second will be less than 15 minutes before the file reaches the limit of 4 GB. But nowadays modes 4K 60 fps and 8K fps on smartphones.
Complaints of limitation began to appear in 2015. And since the developers regularly raised this issue with Google.
64-bit file system can handle files up to 16 TB. However, since the API 32-bit Android is still limiting developers 4GB, forcing you to split video into several files.
This mess has to stop with the release of Android 11. In Android 11 Beta 1 support files over 4GB have been implemented. However, the shooting apps have not had time to readjust to the new opportunities.
Even in the corporate application Google Camera survived limitation of 4 GB. But there are exceptions, for example, Open Camera on Android 11 allows you to shoot videos without legacy constraints, whereas the same app on Android 10 this is not possible.
