The file might not have markers throughout that allow you to move forward that way. You can open up the file in VirtualDub and rebuild it with markers in place... pretty simple to do and the software is free.

Yeah, especially considering that it's free. I've used it countless times.

VirtualDub/NanDub coupled with TMPGEnc you can take care of all sorts of business.

OK, your video file is in ASF format, which is a low-quality, streaming format. As you've seen, VirtualDub cannot play ASF files, and you aren't able to "fast forward" them either using WMP 9. I am almost certain that you can do so using the old version of WMP (version 6.4), which is also installed on your system (C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\mplayer2.exe). Try opening the file using that player.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
