wmv...can't ff or rewnd..if u try to move bar it only goes back...help!

posted in General

When i try to play certain movies, usually wmv’s, they won’t always play right. Some files won’t let you skip ahead or go back. If i have a 2 hour movie, i don’t want to have to watch the first 1 to get to a scene in the middle. Please help! reply

It’s one of the reasons why many people dislike windows media. Its seek capabilities are terrible. You might get by if you have a very fast processor. I don’t think there’s a solution besides re-indexing the file (re-converting it in wmv, but inserting more key frames so seeking is easier) or converting it to another format (like avi, for example using asftools or some other program). reply
