    Well what is the Actual Format of the File?? Is it a ASF file or is it a Mpeg file???
    What I use to make ASF/WMV files seekable is a Little tool called "ASF Tools" which will repair and fix headers or bad frames or corrupted indexes and it will make seekable....
    If it is a Mpeg file then it should allready be seekable.....
    Why don"t you just convert it to AVI useing something like the HuffYUV Codec which is a Lossless codec so you will not loose any Quality and then from there you can do with it what you want....
    I use a Lottle tool called "Stoik Video Converter" to convert ASF/WMV Files to AVI and it works great and it is extremely fast and it supports many other formats also and it can convert Frame rates and change the resolution and it is Freeware....

    Good luck
