Issue downloading a large file

See original GitHub issue

Hello and thanks for this great library.

I’m having issues with a specific file, with is a large video (3.1GB), and stored on Amazon S3. It seems that the file is being downloaded, I can see the progress through the process callback. Once the downloading is complete, the file is saved, but instead of the expected video file, there is a 4 bytes file, which is just a text file containing the string “null”.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Tom

Hi @TomRaz , doing a quick search seem there is a blob size limit (it depends by architecture, RAM, etc.) When the download is completed, the JS try to create a blob object from the stream but it is too big to perform the store operations.

I’ll look for a solution soon, thanks for your feedback 👍
