AVI format for high definition video

Well, if anyone is planning on converting high definition video to .avi, I wouldn’t bother.  It looks like the .avi file format is limited to 2 GB per file.  I had a 10 GB blu ray file that I wanted to convert to avi with xvid to watch on my samsung tv.  The converted file size was around 7 GB but the converter software broke it into four pieces with maximum file sizes of 2 GB each.  So much for that idea, I’m going to try an .mp4 file with xvid codec next.
