Wasm input file size limitations?

Hello,

I’ve been experimenting with ffmpeg wasm compile, and am running into a file size limitation error when the input file is > 2GB. Just wanted to check is this the case on the ICP as well? Or is there a way around this limitation for WASM compiled code?

thanks

Yes, you will hit similar limits on the Internet Computer. Currently, WebAssembly only supports 4GB of memory (it is a 32 bit architecture), and this limitations then of course applies to the Internet Computer as well.

There is a variant of WebAssembly in the works that introduces 64 bit addresses, and surely eventually the Internet Computer will support that too. But not in the near future.
