Can't Fast Forward

posted in General, viewed 142k times Page 2 of 4« first ‹ prev 1 [2] 3 4 next › last »

I agree with rexblaze. AVI/MPEG/ASF/WMV Splitter from www.download.com has been useful for me. I just successfully used it to fast forward one of my videos. I also successfully used Windows Media Encoder to repair this video. Actually, Windows Media Encoder can solve various problems, and it’s free at www.download.com. Good luck everyone. reply

By the way, I chose “Convert a file” in Windows Media Encoder. In Windows Media Encoder, I also lowered the audio and video settings or else Windows Media Encoder takes a long time and creates a new video that’s too big. reply

i converted the file format using a “legal” version of WinAVI format change. This worked fine for my favourite “Debbie Does Dallas 2000”

Thank you CB - it worked for me too!

I also had trouble editing my WMV in Vegas 5 - the video only showed a black screen. After the conversion, i am able to edit the clip, fast-forward, rewind, etc.

All because of those few crucial seconds in the beginning....

Thanks again....great solution. Also thanks to Ali for the WM File Editor pointer. reply

For my videos that can’t fast forward, my AVI/MPEG/ASF/WMV Splitter actually only fast forwards for short videos under 5 minutes long. Do you have the same problem, rexblaze? reply

man, i thought this was going to work, and it seemed like it was, but then i opened the file and forgot it was digitally protected, so windows file editor won’t let me open the file in the editor. any other suggestions? reply

windows xp it’s in “program files” in the windows media player folder reply
