Id like to clip segments from a mpeg file to wmv. I have already built windows media player into my application but it looks rather limited. It looks like you can only play videos etc and not for instance set "In" and "Out" markers and save the segment to a new wmv file. PLEEZ give me some direction with this. All I want is to clip and save none of the other jazz like transitions, filtering etc.

Hi MSAIT, I have a problem assisiting you since you mention you have >>I have already built windows media player into my application << windows media player is not a video editor it is just a media "player"
I dont have any ideas about this application you have built, but in regards to clipping WMV.
I would recoemd you convert the mpeg format to WMV first then clip the WMV.
Super is a free converter very easy fast tool.
Choose WMV in the first panel the rest is done
You drop the mpeg onto Super and hit encode

Then use windows movie maker to clip the WMV.

There are other video editing tools but these were the first that came to mind since you wish to use WMV as the outcome.

MSAIT there is so much out there suggest you try using a good search engine,
Editing AVI files is easily done through VirtualDub and numerous others  but for .wmv and .mpg files the tools are less easily available for free
WMV has been the subject of numerous complaints from users and the press. Users dislike the digital rights management system which is sometimes attached to WMV files[
windows media encoder

Not free

I want to use it in a logging interface where users look for advertisements. They must be able to addin metadata as they go along but also clip the ads directly. so far i have used total recorder dev edition to do the audio stuff but now i want video equivalent.

I have this function from VideoEditor gold but does not work but it is the type of thing i am looking for. I copied it directly from the helpfile.
[Visual Basic Syntax]
VideoEdit1.WMVProfile=0                                               'use first wmv profiles
VideoEdit1.OutputType = 9
VideoEdit1.InitControl
VideoEdit1.AddVideo "c:\test3.mpg" , 0,10     'Add test3.mpg into timeline and then extract video from 0 to 10 seconds
VideoEdit1.AddAudio "c:\test3.mpg" , 0,10     'Add test3.mpg into timeline and then extract audio from 0 to 10 seconds
VideoEdit1.Save "c:\testwmv.wmv"
