as far as I know, AVI files have normally a limit of 4 GB since some
fields in the header of the AVI file only have a size of 32 bits. So it
sounds quite "normal" that some programs like Quicktime might refuse
bigger AVI files. Not sure why your file got so big though, could you
maybe have a look at your hatari.cfg file to see which value is set in
the AviRecordVcodec variable?
