The earlier series of smartphones did not shoot high-resolution videos but the game changed completely after the smartphones started recording 4K videos. Now, this is a problem because the 32-bit Android caps videos at the size of 4GB max and it is hardly 15 minutes to fill 4GB for a 4K video. So the videos on the smartphone would be spilt in 4GB sizes. This is definitely a problem and it seems that Android 11 will get rid of 4GB limit on video recordings.
Android 11 Will Get Rid of 4GB Limit on Video Recordings
This is one of the long-existing issues that is still not addressed and it is problematic as you just can’t shoot a complete length video over the 4GB size limit and now that the Android 11 Beta 1 is out for testing, we can expect that Android 11 will get rid of 4GB limit on video recordings.
People from Android Police actually tested the new beta 1 and they still saw the issue present there while recording videos via Google Camera app, the videos would still split into 4GB sized files. Well, they have noticed that this wasn’t the case when the recorded video with Open Camera by Mark Harman.
Now, this could be due to the fact that it is using the mpeg4writer API named in the original commit. Anyways, with this interesting development, we can say that there won’t be 4GB caps for video recordings in Android 11 but it is really important for the developers to get rid of this issue with the Android 11 update. Beta 1 of Android 11 is still pretty fresh so we might see the developers to address and fix the issue with future updates.
