Not true. The 4GB (actually, 3.99GB) limit is due to the FAT32 disk filing format itself (as it is on most reasonably-priced flash memory cards), not because of the AVI codec.

And the reason why every single one of my DV-AVI files from DV tape are all much smaller than even 4GB because the tape has been paused frequently during recording, and that DV import software always break up files according to the pauses on the tape.

I have never heard of any application on a PC that captures anything but MS DV AVI
DIF was a common captue file format used by some legacy NLE products from Fast Multimedia, now owned by Avid (via Dazzle and Pinnacle).

The 2 GB AVI file size limit commonly seen with media files on FAT systems came out of the Windows 95/98 era and "Video for Windows" architecture, and has stayed with us. While later version of windows can do larger files, the 2 GB limit is probably observed by vendors for some measure of backward compartibility.
