Windows 7: Playing avi movies - not able to scan forward

Playing avi movies - not able to scan forward

Hi Guys,

I'm having a problem with xvid videos playing through Media Center. I'm unable to scan through the film, the 30 second ahead works. When I click the forward button nothing happens. I've been encoding with handbrake using xvid codecs...

Can anybody shed some light on this?

The DVR functionality in WMC requires files encoded in a manner that the application, in this case WMC, can correctly read, pause, buffer, etc. I suggest your files are not encoded in a such a manner.

Can you properly play, record, view, pause, fast forward, etc., Recorded TV in WMC? A newer DVD? If so, your hardware is likely OK.
