It seems that an ASX file is nothing other than a text file saved as ASX which follows a certain simple language like file path, start stop, etc. It's a metafile playlist

I need to show a few seconds of the same clip, and I wanted to create an ASX file playlist instead of editing the file.

Here's an online example of something similar:

(although I'm not sure if it works)

Here's an easy to scan page:

Here's the syntax:

What I thought would be interesting is if there was a preview pane where I could preview my video and have a start/end button and the times could be automatically inserted. Other interesting fucntions would be to randomize the clips, or place other metatags (names, etc).

I think this should be doable, but I don't know if I've explained myself enough! Let me know! Thanks!

Hey did you ever find any help with this?  I would like the same thing!
(see http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=15973.0)

You want to play a local video file, right?

I tried making a ASX Tool app (in .Net) to do this but it seems to run strangely,... like ASX's weren't made to keep playing the same file over and over again.  (I guess you could copy the video into different file names, one for each snippet you want to play... although I haven't tried this.)

Let me know what you've done/found.  I could give you a copy of my little tool if you want to try it out for yourself.

Thanks! I'd love to see what you have!

I remember there being a really simple tool like this many years ago, but unfortuantely I can't find it anymore...
