Why is it always all or nothing with some people? If someone's going to
muck with stuff, why not give the option to have the old functionality as
I dunno, g_video_chunk 1 would put it into 2 GB chunks, g_video_chunk 0
would write to one big file for each recording session.
I'm sure the necessary conditional statements to make something like that
would be inelegant or ugly from a coding perspective but it would make
great sense and be really functional from a user perspective.
Tigger, you may also want to give more information. What editing programs
are you using where you're NOT seeing the same stitching issues that
Nerius was? I haven't done much video editing myself but the few times
I've tried joining video files together have always seemed hit or miss.
Any suggestions for Nerius or myself or anyone else who might actually see
a need for this ability to write one large file?
