Hej Antti and fellow racers,
how do you cope with video file size limits?
RaceChrono is splitting my recordings into multiple video files, like GoPro and others do as well, for some reasons I am aware of. Those file sizes max out just below 1900 MiB, at about 1.992.xxx.xxx Bytes size. That so, I assume this has nothing to do with any filesystem-driven limits (like 4 GiB for FAT32) etc., but comes from either RaceChrono or the phone's OS resp. its camera API. (Results are the same irrespective of which camera API I set in expert options.)
Previously, with another phone (OnePlus), I did not really notice or care, as no gap between files was noticeable after merging them, for example by exporting into overlaid videos. After changing to a different model that is quicker in general (Huawei), I am facing gaps of about four to five seconds between video files. Which fairly annoys me, as I'm not lapping quickly enough on the Nordschleife to get a gapless 4K video. ;-)
The gap length seems to be independent of image size (like 2160p vs 1080p), almost suggesting it's not due to underperforming I/O.
What could be done to minimise those gaps, or, disable video file splitting at all?
