iirc the default mingw lacked the proper off_t , if the following patch
was applied, files larger than 4gb would work. this old patch is from
win32 mingw mplayer builds:

this is fixed in the mingw-w64 fork of mingw.
so if you build with the mingw-w64 toolchain it will work ok.

note: i havent checked if current mingw has fixed this either. i dont
know which toolchains we've been using to build mingw binaries.
