It is not, there is no hard filesize limit.

To elaborate a bit what is written on 
http://ffmpeg.org/bugreports.html :
There were many bugreports in the past (esp. 
crashes) were 10MB is far too much, 100k were 
often enough. I remember a bug about a buggy 
first frame in a an asf stream, the user 
uploaded 30MB, one would have been more than 
enough. Otoh, if you want to report A/V sync 
issues with a HD stream, 100MB can be appropriate 
(or even not enough). So you should upload enough 
to (very easily) reproduce your problem, not ten 
times as much.

Use tools/qt-faststart to produce a mov file 
that you can cut with dd.
