Cannot rename larger files

Postby SarahTheAnimator » Fri Feb 07, 2020 9:54 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to rename various video files I've captured from OBS. Most files I can drag and drop in no problem, but the longer video clips will not show up in BRU. I have 19 .avi files, and only 14 of them will show up in the BRU window. Anything over 2GB won't show up. All the same format, all recorded at the same time, just some videos are a bit longer than others.

I couldn't find anything on this being a known issue or by design. Help? Thank you!

Additionally, I was having this issue with an older version, so I uninstalled and reinstalled with the latest available. Still the same issue. I have tired clearing the list, and dragging files in again, same result. Also tried dragging over the larger files individually and that does not work either.

Same problem here. Windows 10 1909.
Couldn't find any documentation by creators or otherwise.
Though - this issue appears for me only when dragging and dropping. When you locate the larger-than-2gb files within BRU, by navigating to them inside BRU, it sees them alright, and then you can rename them.
So there seems to be an undocumented invisible file size limit when you want to create a renaming list just anywhere by d-n-d.
I would also like to know why this is so.

Anything over 2GB won't show up.

There does seems to be a limit.
But it is > 2GB (at least on my end).
Perhaps 4 GB (or at least > 3GB).

I've got a couple 3 GB'rs that drag fine.
4's don't.

Confirmed, it is an issue with files that are larger than what can be stored in a 32-bit value...
we will fix this in version 3.4.1.0 which is going to be released in the next few days.
Thank you for the report! 8)
