* 2 GB for devices that only support AVI as specified in 1992 (i think)

* about 2^31 GB for devices that support Open-DML AVI files as 
specified in 1996.

Especially manufacturers of hardware MPEG4 players appearently are 
unable to support extentions to a file format on such short term, 
usually they only support the old version. Also, OGM trolls usually 
invoke this limitation in order to pollute forums.
