Help - Only part of file loads
« on: March 02, 2018, 07:27:54 AM »
I am having a problem with some files where Avidemux won't open the complete file.  For example, I may have a 2GB file that is 37 minutes long but when I open the file and jump to the last frame, it stops at 2 minutes.  It's like that was the actual end of the file.  But that's wrong because when I run the file in Windows Media Player, it plays the full 37 minutes.

I'm editing a long event recorded on a camcorder.  The camcorder split the video, which was one long 2 hour shot, into 4 equal parts.  I can open the first two files properly in Avidemux but the last 2 files are shortened.  Help?

Delete the .idx2 files if these exists for the same named video parts.
Load part 01, append remaining parts manually, don't let avidemux append automatically.
Use the latest avidemux for your OS (28/02/2018)

Awesome!  Deleting the .idx2 file totally worked!  Much appreciated.
