mpeg4 decoder, problems with large avis

[sectionBodyText]I have a problem with using multiple mpeg4 encoded videostream avis. [/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]Decoding the first 2 gigabytes of my recordings work fine, but about 2.1 gigs (suspiciously close to 2^31) in to the recording
getFrame from the decoder starts returning UMC_ERR_SYNC and UMC_WRN_INVALID_STREAM alternatingly. [/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]My video contains 3 videostreams (DX50) and no sound. If I decode just one of the video streams, I have no problems. [/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]If I ignore the errors, I will get a messed up video that looks like it contains some video data from the beginning of the recording instead. [/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]It also seems to be from a different video stream than expected (i.e stuff from stream 2 can be found in stream 1). 
To me it looks like some kind of overflow error. [/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]My videos are recorded with a mpeg4 encoder board and muxed into one avi using directshow. [/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]I can play them in VLC or Media Player classic without problems.[/sectionBodyText]
[sectionBodyText]Here's some code that should reproduce the error:[/sectionBodyText]

Our expert recommend to replace UMC::FIOReader with UMC::FileReader which use vm_file wrappers to support files with more than 2 Gb lenght

Now it works great!

Thanks a lot Vladimir!
By the way, is there any documentation for FileReader or FIOReader? I had no idea this could be the problem.

Yes, UMC components should be documented in UMC manual, please check folder 'doc' in audio-video-codecs sample.

Thanks,

I have read the manual, I couldn't find any mention about the differences between FIOReader and FileReader though, only the baseclass datareader is documented there as far as I can tell.

Thanks for your points. That mean we have to improve documentation in future versions.
