Why does every program crash when I try to cut a wmv file?
« on: November 04, 2008, 12:27:32 PM »
I have downloaded a large wmv file that I am trying to cut a segment out of.  Every program I've tried using that has worked for me in the past (Boilsoft, asfbin) gives me the same error "instruction referenced memory memory could not be read" (something like that) and the program crashes.  Why does this happen?  Is there anything else I can do?  I need to cut the so it will be a reasonable size to post on my website.  Thanks.

Don't know how large your file is, but you might try to convert it to something other than wmv and try to edit that.

You could always convert back to wmv once you get your clip if you need it in that format.

Luck! :Thmbsup:

Ha!  That's exactly what I did using the great converter, Super.  The video is now posted:

I wanted to put it up for my dad, he's the worldwide expert on that particular subject.

Bravo! I'm a big fan of Super. Despite it's oddball interface and general clunky look, it handles just about everything I've ever thrown at it.

Hats off to your Dad too! :Thmbsup:

Thanks!  My dad's a good guy.

Yeah, I almost dismissed Super because of the interface, until I realized how it does everything you'd want something like that to do.
