CB said:

“A follow up. I downloaded the Windows Media encoder and the WMCodecs, ran the Windows Media File Editor, opened the file and went to “Save As and Index”. It did not work at first with the error “Failed to Save File” - BUT - good news - when I played the file in the Windows Media File Editor for a few seconds (I couldn’t see it but that didn’t matter) and hit the Mark In button it set the recording start time just a few seconds after the start of the file."

I tried this with my file and it didn’t work. The Mark In button was grayed out.

So I downloaded the editor someone else recommended:
ASFTools at

Make Seekable didn’t work, so I tried Lost Chunks. It created a file with lch appended to the original file name. This new file still wouldn’t let me scroll the fast foward bar. So I reopened it in the Windows Media File Editor and started to play it. This time, the Mark In button was enabled, and I was able to click it a few seconds into the recording and then successfully save the file.

After that I could fast forward and reverse using the slider bar. I hope nobody else has to go through all of this but I thought I would post my extended fix just in case. reply


cheers cb! reply


this worked for me:

When playing WMV files, playback is jerky and/or I can’t move ahead in the timeline. How can I fix this?
Flip4Mac version introduced a change to the way it loads files. Rather than preloading, the file loads immediately, allowing you to play the video while it finishes loading in the background. This is a considerably slower load time than if it preloads, but allows you to watch the video without delay. This was done to eliminate conflicts with certain applications when encoding. However, for larger files and particularly HD files, it can cause stuttering playback and the inability to skip ahead in the timeline.

To change this option, do the following:

* Go to System Preferences > Flip4Mac WMV > Player and click the Advanced button
* Click the + button and add QuickTime to the list
* Reboot QuickTime for the changes to take effect reply

wow, that idea by CB really worked..thanks man

Still, some lore does exist. Perhaps the most familiar means of spirituality in WOW(WOW Gold) is the Holy Light. Embraced primarily by humans and drained, the Holy Light is more a way (to Buy WOW Gold)of life than a deity (recon!). Light is about love and beauty akin to a religion based around the amazing feeling cats get when they fall asleep in a sunbeam. Though one can eventually trace the light back to (Buy Aion Gold)a supreme being, the magic behind (WOW Power Leveling)the spells comes from the belief of the caster. Built around the three virtues of respect(Aion Leveling), tenacity and compassion, the Light is good and holy. But we, dear friends we are the shadow. We are the antithesis of the light. reply

Let me tell you my opinion, using my poor English (not my native language). It is not a fact, just my suspicions i share with you.

Till now we all can pust FF in a a video, a DVD, or even in a play in our TV. This “weapon” is very useful when we have to face ads (commercials).

So some big companies try to cut this option for us. They push things for new codecs, new tricks, in order we all to necessarily see their commercials, even if we do not want to do so. No FF option, so we have to watch all.

They started with video players, monitoring the reactions of the market. Then they will go on DVD polayers, finally in TV....

True ? I do not know. But it does explain things, isn’t it ?



convert the file with prizm and it a few minutes. you have full rein of the new converted file
