    Morning:

    Didn't know where to post this one, never seen this before...

    I downloaded a WMV9 video that is actually three WMV9 videos combined (the same video with two other files that have descending video quality)...

    I only want to keep one of the files...

    Is there any freeware out there that can extract the audio and video tracks for me?

    Help?

    I've attached the .nfo file

    I haven't seen that format often, but AsfBin can extract segments.

    http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AsfBin

    I think VideoRedo can also handle it, but it isn't free - read somewhere that the demo was functional for a short time and it's probably simpler.

    Thanks for your input mate...

    Any chance that you have used this software and have a user guide for it?

    Why do people create software and not include documentation that you will need to use it?

    Bloody hell

    1 Browse to the folder containing the files.
    2 Move a file into workspace.
    3 Turn on preview window.
    4 Using the left portion of the slider thingy, move to the approximate start of the segment.
    5 In the preview window, fine tune the start
    6 Repeat with the right thingy for the end
    7 Browse to the output location
    8 Save it.

    Thanks Attar:

    ASFBinWin did the trick...

    Ran it from a USB stick no muss no fuss...

    Kinda strange that I could open the original file with Media Player Classic in Win 7 but it would not play back the extracted file with either an asf or wmv extension (said it couldn't render the file)...

    Checked preferences and all formats were checked off...

    After transcoding to avi the file plays fine - weird

    Thanks for your help - appreciate it
