Video recording stops after ~3 seconds nearly every time on T3i

Issue #1170 wontfix
zipzoomerooer created an issue

I have it set it to auto-start again after it stops in the settings, but it does it fairly consistently, though not every time.

I start recording, it records for ~3 seconds, then a box pops up saying that recording automatically stopped, then it starts again a second or so later.

Any ideas as to what I could be doing that's causing this?

I'm on a T3i with a Canon 50mm f/1.8 lens.

    I apologize because now I'm thinking this isn't actually a bug, but if you wouldn't mind humoring me for a bit longer...

    What should I change the bitrate settings to? I changed it to .1x and the video came out terribly pixelated. Is there somewhere I can read more about bitrate?

    Thanks for your help.

    If you have a slow card, set it to 0.9. If you have a class 6 or faster, from a well-known manufacturer, set it at 1.0.

    For a class 2 card (really slow, but that's what I use for development), set it at 0.8.
