Why needs to split videos? One, you don't need the whole video, just parts of it. Two, the file size of the entire video is too large, beyond your device space capacity. Third, the larger in size, the lower in speed. As for the video streaming, transferring or saving to mobile device, hard drive or SD card, the whole video transferring might waste your precious time up to several or dozens of hours.
