    Has anyone else had this problem? I attempted to record 3 hrs of video
    by splitting the files at each 4GB, and use the time limit feaure of
    avi_io, but it doesnt work, the capture just keeps going for hours and
    creates an single unusable file.(which usually is between 5-7GB)
    plz help

    The only ocasion I ever saw this behaviour was with a so called
    "cracked" version of AVI_IO. Try to reproduce this behaviour with the
    latest trial - and in your situation - start with filesegment sizes of
    2GB. If it then really does not split the files, feel free to send me
    an e-mail. If it does, increase the filesize. There ARE situations
    where the propper filesize estimation is nearly impossible and in such
    sitations it's wise to choose a slightly smaller segment size.

    PS: I always try to sort out such problems independant of the fact
    wether somone is using the trial or a full license, so if you continue
    to have trouble feel free to e-mail me directly.

    I dunno if the same applies to AVI_IO but I had that problem with
    VirtualDub. In my case it was because the cpu/harddrive was being absolutely
    trashed at 100% during capture.

    Nope, AVI_IO in the situation as you describe it, would stop capturing
    and present you with a message to reduce the datarate.
