I recently became aware of .wvx playlist files that allow me to create a playlist for a videos that is broken into multiple files. Is there any playlist file type that solves the opposite problem (multiple videos in one file)? I am looking for a something like a playlist file that has instructions to "play video file my_video.avi between 1:30:00 and 1:52:00 (ideally this would be a file that windows media player would recognize).
I could accomplish this by copying that section of the video file and placing it in its own file but this would cost time and cpu cycles (to re-encode), and disk space so I would love to be able to create a playable reference to a section of the already existing file. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
