Having problems streaming an MMS (WMV) file for a movie trailer - the Length is stated as 332 seconds, but the "Loaded %" field reaches, then passes that length, and eventually stops at 334 seconds, then aborts and the whole process starts again.
There is no evidence of the wmv file being written to disk either.

As a temporary workaround I would suggest you to right-click the file and choose Finalize when it loaded over 332 seconds. I will also check what`s going wrong there and make an improvement.

Thanks for the tip - "Finalize" worked just fine for the small trailer - trying it on the large one now.
A question - where is "Finalize" mentioned in the manual - I`d wish I`d known about it earlier

Sorry, we overlooked this. I just added the corresponding text to the "Downloading a Project" topic.
