Keep the file size under 2gb?

Ask this question on the Archos forum?

We can answer any question here that they can answer there. Thankyou.

Well, I don’t see an answer to his question here but it [B]is[/B] answered over at Archos, albeit unsatisfactory.

Some software players and standalones have problems with AVI’s over 2GB. Some conversion software set 2GB as the max.

Does it play any files over 2 Gig? It’s possibly a file system limitation.
