HTC One (M8): Still cannot handle video files greater than 4GB
Isn't it about time Google fixed this?
The new M8 with a fresh 64GB SD card installed and formatted in the phone, I cannot write a video file greater than 4GB to it. Its a size limitation.
Any known work arounds? HD movies are all larger than this limit.

Re: HTC One (M8): Still cannot handle video files greater than 4GB
In the system framework the file transfer size has likely been limited to 4GB over MTP. I'm not sure why this is done, but I've seen it that way on most HTC ROMs.
I guess the assumption is that most people will be using FAT formatted cards, though you'd think since the M8 supports SDXC and exFAT out of the box that they would disable that behavior by default.
If you allowed the phone to format the card, it likely formatted it as FAT32, not exFAT. Also, I think that file size limitation may not apply if the card is mounted in Mass Storage mode, which I haven't confirmed is possible yet.
