I'm wondering if I'm having the same video problem or not. I was able to shoot continuous video when I first got the camera. Then after a few days, my Canon 70D would stop recording, but there is no message saying "recording has been stopped automatically." Instead when I start the recording I see a progress bar at the bottom of the screen that fills up with blue and when it fills the entire bar, it stops. I films exactly 4 seconds every time and the progress bar seems timed to it.
Did I accidentally set the video to shoot to a specific time length? Or should I consider getting Extreme Pro cards as some of you suggested?

thinksideways - I think it's the same issue as we're having. I just ordered a 90mb/s SD card which arrives Monday and I'll test and update on if that fixed things.

I figured out my problem: I had accidentally set my camera to shoot video stills so it was only recording in 4 second increments. Once I disabled this, the video started recording properly.

I agree with Bitbucket1 - but for me I had issues with a 40Mb/s card and it went away with my 90Mb/s card. Just found a PNY "Elite Performance" 64GB card on Amazon for a super low $40 and it has worked flawlessly on my past two shoots, where the Sony 40Mb/S card acted up several times a shoot. Guess sometimes the 40Mb/s on the Sony wasn't reaching those speeds so the camera crapped out.
I'm considering my issue resolved with this fix.

Hello, am I right in thinking (yes, I'm a newbie) that if I get a card that is 95mb sec and irrespective of the actual size of the memory card ie it can be 16gb, 32gb or 64gb the video recording will work properly? I'm thinking of getting either the 16gb or 32gb Sandisk Extreme Pro 95mb sec UHS-I mainly due to the cost factor. Thanks for your help.

I'm wondering whether you are experiencing a different problem than the one being discussed in this thread.
The symptoms of the problem being addressed here are that you can start video recording in low compression mode (ALL-I) but then you receive the error message "movie recording has been stopped automatically" as the card overruns it's buffer and video recording stops.
It sounds like you are not getting the camera to record video at all and you are not getting the error message above. To me, that sounds like a different issue and I'm thinking that the card isnt the problem, especially since the card you are using (or ones with similar specs) have solved the issue for those experiencing the "stopped automatically" issue.
This is perhaps overly general advice, but since you are a new owner of the 70D (as I was), you may want to check out this video series that takes you though every button and setting of the 70D :: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAwt2t1vGthIMWNTt2OxPJ2GRjNYKZskU
It may seem like overkill, but there are lots of little features in the 70D that are not intutitve. For example, you can't shoot video and have wifi active simultaneously. Not sure why, but it's one of the many things that I leanred while watching this series.
Apologies for not having a direct answer for your issue. Hope the above is helpful.
