That's because AVI files aren't supposed to be larger than 1GB.
The bigger ones use variably succesful implementations of the OpenDML
specs, which permits making bigger AVIs, but is usually badly implemented, 
and makes them not easily readable by standard AVI parsers.

Even when you get the headers, the documentations about this is, well
inexistant :)
Hope to get those issues fixed in OBOS.
