.asf file - can't fast forward

  tomleady 11:46 18 Nov 2003

I downloaded an hour long football video of the net, and its format is a .asf file extension. in Media Player (series 9), i cant navigate through the video, and i cant fast forward, rewind, in fact, all i can do is play it!

i have tried renaming the extension - to avi, wmv, mov, anything really! and nothign happens.

in Winamp 3, i can naviaget through it, but no viedo actually appears.

any ideas?

I had the same issue [on a works presentation video ;o(] so would like to know what to do - rather than sit for 45 minutes watching irrelevant detail.
