Splitting Large MP4 Files

Flash drive formatted with FAT32 has a ~4.3GB maximum file size. I wanted to use the USB to watch the movie on my TV, but it wouldn't fit. To split a large mp4 file into more manageable chunks, I found this forum post on MP4Box. It works great.
$ sudo apt-get install gpac
$ MP4Box -split 3600 <filename>.mp4
The above splits the file into one hour chunks.
