Hi,

I'm new here and have a 650D, All I want to do is be able to over come the video timeout limit can this be done just but using ML ?
I don't really have any deeper requirements but if it will get over the time limit is there anything else i should be aware of that could be a problem to me as a basic user?

Thanks !

If you can live with lost frames (about half a second) every 30 minutes you can write H.264 recordings as long as you want (and card has free space and battery has not been drained).
If you can't: ML supports seamless recording in RAW/MLV mode up and beyond 30 minutes. But storage interface limit is about 40 MByte/s and you will have to use lower resolutions and cropped field of view. Cam interface is good for about 720p24 in 14 bit continuous recording.

Just found this forum, today.  Hope to obtain a solution to the 29:59 minute limitation when recording video.  Essential to an objective I have of recording our church services and making the videos available to our members who are at home and unable to get out.

I have a Canon ESO T4i.  It is about 2-3 years old.  I am attempting to install ML, but all my attempts result in failure at the 4% mark while the Firmware Update Program is running.  At that point, I receive the following message:

"Update file error

Please check the memory
card and reload the
battery and try again."

The camera was using firmware version 1.0.5.  I installed version 1.0.4 after reading here that the current version of ML requires 1.0.4 (please correct me if I am wrong).

Initially, I was using a 200-GB card, but after reading some past posts about possible problems with anything above 32-GB, I attempted to install ML from a 2-GB card.  Still not successful.

I performed a low level format of the card (using the camera) before copying the ML files to it.  During all this, I noticed the camera formats the card using FAT despite the manual saying exFAT is used.  As a result, I attempted installing ML using the card formatted as FAT, then exFAT.  Still no success with the same error message.

I also attempted to use the last three ML posted files.  I got as far as using the nightly build posted MAR 12, 2017.  Same unsuccessful results.

At this point, I am at a loss as to what to try next.  Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Gerald

Use photo mode M, retry with 2 GB card. Retry.
If it fails, reset cam to factory defaults. Don't forget C.Fn settings. Retry.

Cam will format all cards < 64 GB with FAT16/FAT32. Doesn't matter for this part of the operation.

Hey guys,

after a long flawless life of Magic Lantern, I got some blue screens on April 1st, saying my camera is bricked. Thinking it was an April fool's joke, I re-entered the battery and got another one after a couple of hours. I updated to the latest nightly build, Mar30. Since then, no errors, just a random freeze yesterday.

Any ideas?

I wonder how many hours April Fools Day lasts?

24 maybe  ;)
