Apparently i need to use a version of mencoder compiled with --enable-largefiles to encode files > 2GB.
But i'm caught between a rock and hardplace.
i'd compile a version to handle > 2GB files myself but i'm currently using cygwin/gcc 3.x series but when i run my built mencoder.exe i get this message:
Compiler did not align stack variables. Libavcodec has been miscompiled
and may be very slow or crash. This is not a bug in libavcodec,
but in the compiler. You may try recompiling using gcc >= 4.2.
Do not report crashes to FFmpeg developers.
i don't want to install gcc 4.x yet because i'm using 3.x for many other projects and don't want to risk affecting them.
adding the --enable-largefiles option appears to only affect the demux portion (since it must handle 64 bit offsets), yes ?
