    Default How can FIX FLV Tool be used to make an FLV file seekable

    version 4 has a tool named "Fix FLV" accessible from the right-click context menu for any downloaded FLV file. The user guide has no documentation about this tool. Occasionally a file turns out to be unseekable. How can this tool be used to make an FLV file seekable?

    Default Re: How can FIX FLV Tool be used to make an FLV file seekable

    I found the FAQ on the Applian main site about opening Fix FLV, selecting the file, clicking on "File Contents" bar (they left out that step!), leaving the default at "15" (no idea what that value is supposed to indicate) and press the Fix Time button:

    1. Click Tools -> Fix FLV and select the file to be fixed.
      Or, if the file is still in Replay Media Catcher's main list, right-click on it and select Fix FLV.
    2. Expand the File Contents section


    3. Set timestamp to 15 and click Fix Time.
    If the resulting file is still fast or slow then the time stamp can be adjusted further. But, 15 usually does the trick. Be sure to click the Fix Time button, or your changes will not be applied.

    No matter what I set the value to, the same error message appears when the progress bar is almost completely done (preseumably at or near the end of the file):

    Unexpected Error
    Value of '103' is not valid for 'Value'.
    'Value' should be between 'minimum' and 'maximum'.
    Parameter name: Value


    The only choice is to press OK.
    The progress bar resets, and quickly runs through to the end, disappears, and nothing further happens.

    The file remains unseekable in any FLV player, and crashes players like Winamp, BSPlayer, KMPlayer.

    The value (15) indicated the number of frames per second (fps).

    Can you upload this flash video file to some file sharing web-site or post the web-page URL you downloaded/captured the video from?

    Indeed - Can you please provide me with the URL of the audio or video you're trying to record, so I can trouble shoot the issue?
