why the downloaded files from explorer enterprise are not seekable?

i could not move forward or backward the media files during viewing by moving the seek task bar.

the same files downloaded from wm recorder are seekable.

any suggestion how to make the files downloaded from explorer enterprise be seekable?

please advise.

thanks,

Thank you for letting me know. Can you please tell me exact URLs that are not seekable after the download? Please also let me know the Offline Explorer version you are using.

Thank you! I will work on it. It may take some time, though.

I have found the following - if you open the clip directly from your disk in MS Media Player, it is seekable. You can also do the following - go to that Project Map, find the .asf file, press Shift key and right-click on the file. You will get the standard Windows popup menu - select Open or Play there.

oleg,

i do not quite understand your answer.

"if you open the clip directly from your disk in MS Media Player, it is seekable"

i double click on the media file icon to open ms media player, it is NOT seekable.

i double click on the ms media player icon and open the media file from ms media player by picking the file tab & pick open option to play the media file, it is NOT seekable.

please provide the steps how to view the file so it is seekable.

"go to that Project Map, find the .asf file, press Shift key and right-click on the file. You will get the standard Windows popup menu - select Open or Play there"

what is the `project map`?

please be more specific on your solutions.

thanks,

OK. Please try the following - you you still have the Project that loaded the streaming file, please select it, then click Map tab and select the streaming .asf file. Now, press Shift key and right-click the file (with the Shift ke still pressed). Release the Shift key and select "Play" from the context menu that appears on the screen. Does this make file seekable now?

oleg,

sorry, i still do not get it.

how should i download the file?

"mms://wm.hkjc.pbase.net/data2001/datatemp/replay/20021020/chi_20021020_race10_500.asf"

i copied the above mentioned complete address to the ADDRESS bar in Offline Explorer and hit DOWNLOAD tab.

after the media file is finished downloading.

i double click either the media file icon or ms media player icon to view the media file AND it is not seekable.

can you advise me how you could download a seekable media file from Offline Explorer with step by step procedures.

thanks,

Yes, I loaded around 1 minute of the file again and it was seekable while viewing it.
