Playback starts from the beginning when files are >4Gbyte

I just updated to a Smart-TV. As this can play videos from VDR filesystem and the recordings in 2GB junks have been inconvenient, especially for HD recordings, I decided to set the maximum file size to 25 GByte. While watching one of the latest recordings the playback suddenly started from the beginning while it was impossible to jump to the end of the video at all. I assume that there is used a 32 bit never for file offset which is not sufficient for the complete recording. The size of the recording is about 6Gbyte. That fits well to the position where the restart happened.

I hope this problem can be reproduced. In the latest VDR versions the file size can be given in the settings. So it is likely that more users change this in future.



Sorry for posting the issue again. I rebuilt the package and can confirm that the issue is fixed with the change.
