Can't view the whole of an mpg file

  webber_man 09:16 11 Dec 2004


A freind has sent me a couple of mpg files but i am unable to watch the entire file. The file sizes are 120mb and 46mb but when i open them only something like 40 or 50 seconds is given as the length of the file. This is not correct as they should be 50 minutes to over an hour.

I have used RealOne, WMP and another programme to view - all have the same problem. The strange this is if i move the bar along forward to a new point in the file i see new images - yet it still stops after 50 seconds!

Any ideas anyone please?

or failing that try Videolan at:

I haven't found many files that VideoLan can't play.

PS, watching that stuff will make you go blind you know ;-)

I'll give Videolan a whirl.....and hopefully safely remove my hands from my eyes!
