Try to play the file with -idx as an extra option. -ni might help, too.

The problem with >4GB AVI files is, that there simply is no standard way 
to write them due to AVI internal limitations. There are several ways 
to work around this, from which OpenDML ist best known, but whatever 
you do, you will always run into problems.
