Can I arbitrarily change the nbr of frames on an .avi file?


I know absolutely zero about video editing. I have a 713 mb .avi file. It plays to frame 4,095 and stops. There must be more out there, but that's where it stops.

Thought maybe if I opened it in a video editor program, I could just resave it, and that would fix the problem. Installed Kino, but that wouldn't even open the file. Installed avidemux opened the file. Clicking on the Properties tab I see that there are only 4,095 frames

Again, I'm sure there are more. Any suggestions?

To this point, I have not been able to get thru all the dependencies for MPlayer. Tried it again this morning, got farther along than before, but still hung up on libviaXvMC.so.1. I think there may be a kernal module that I need (Fedora Core 3). Maybe when they release the next kernal.

Any other suggestions?

Installing rpms. I thought I might be able to just find the libviaXvMC.so.1 by itself somewhere and copy it to the correct library, but I couldn't find it ... and I read something in a wiki about possibly needing to recompile the kernal to get a directory in place.

I do have xorg-x11-devel installed ...

According to RPM Find, the file I am missing is in xorg-x11-libs ... when I try to install that, I get a dependency for xorg-x11-libs ... which, of course I am trying to install ... although I do, of course have an older version of xorg-x11-libs as well.

I'm not a complete newbie with Linux, just video editing. My theory is that after a while, Fedora or someone will come out with a new rpm package that will deal with whatever vagaries my current setup has, and everything will work fine.

As I said, on my most recent try at installing mplayer, I got farther than ever before, I think that I'm down to that one last file which I can't find standalone, so I'll wait a little longer.

Sure would like to know if there's any hope for this video, tho.

Right now you are going through dependencies nightmare. I suggest compiling mplayer instead installing it using RPM files.

It is possible that the video is encoded with raw video and raw sound which takes a lot of space.
