Default [Q] Change camcorder maximum time limit - CM11

Running CM11 nightlies and using the packaged camera/camcorder.

All video recordings automatically cut off at exactly 10 minutes for both 1080 and 720 quality.
This is not a size issue, there are over 10Gb of space left after a 10 minute video records.
I've attempted recording to both the internal SD and an external SD with the same results.

Is there a way to change the maximum time limit for the CM11 camcorder?
I'm comfortable experimenting with Terminal Emulator or ES File Manager, I just don't really know how to go about doing it.

Some additional information:
The recorded files aren't close to 2Gb or 4Gb, so I don't think it's a partitioning issues.
And since it always cuts off at exactly 10 minutes, I don't think it's a heat issue, buffering issue, power issue, or any other hardware limitation.

If the CM11 camcorder is the android stock camcorder I came across the profile.
Google "android developer camcorder profile" and it's the first link. (I can't link URLs yet.)
There is a duration field in there that automatically cuts off the video after a certain time, I just don't know how to change it.
