    Hiya and welcome

    Is this by any chance an asf file, or a streaming file of somekind?

    If these are from the newsgroups, then it will show the entire length of the clip. You'll have to get all the clips, and then combine them.

    If not from the newsgroups, could you give us the link as to where? If its File sharing, then I'm afraid if its fully downloaded, then that's all you'll get :(

    Regards

    eddie

    Thanks. Eddie

    just to clarify. Yes they are files from file sharring and all mpg's, but i know the whole file is there the player just wont recognise the whole file for some reason. jumping forward by moving the slider on the timeline shows there is more than just the first 5 mins, but if you leave it to play normaly thats all you can see
