    Default Maximum Video Length or Maxiumum File Size?

    I own a Nexus 5. When I record long videos, the recording always stop at 15-16 min or around 2 GByte file size? Is there any Android OS restrictions on file size or format of the internal memory or something?

    Yes, it's an Android OS restriction on the video files m afraid. No matter what resolution you're recording the video at, whenever you hit the near 2gb mark, your video will automatically stop recording. Some say it's due to programmers using unsigned int which has a range of -2 to 2gb while others say it's some sort of legislative issue. In any case, if you want you can work around it by using a third party app such as SVC app (Pro Version), which won't overcome the 2gb issue but it will automatically create a second file to continue recording. Hope it helps
