Every WMV file I have play fine if I just let them play normally until they finish, but the seek function in WMP8 and WMV9 doesn't seem to seek correctly with these files?
If I play a WMV then skip say 3/4 of the way through the file, the picture seems to 'melt' away and morph into the frame I skipped to but then freezes and won't play or takes ages to start playing? I seem to be able to slowly skip about from the start to 1/2 way though the files but after that they don't seem to seek properly. MPG and AVI files will seek properly?
I upgraded from WMP8 to WMP9 to see if the problem was WMP8, but the same happens in WMP9.
I tried loading then Saving and Reindexing some WMV files in Windows Media File Editor, but that didn't work. I don't really want have to re-encode and lose any quality or increase the size. I tried WinAVI to convert a 146mb WMV to DVD and it came out over 1GB but the seek works
So is there any utility that will 'fix' the seek problem in WMV files?
