View Full Version : Size / Time recording limitations?

10-11-2008, 11:39 AM
Trying to record a 2hr 40m video, the recording stops at about 290Mb stating that is the 100% of the file, which is actually only 20% approx.

Regcording in ADA default values. 120Gigs available disk space.

Please advise. Thank you.

Hi Contiw,

Which program are you using to attempt the recording, and what website is this from?

Response from Applian Technologies:

Hi Walter,

Have you verified the recorded clip to see if it really is complete? Generally, if a file shows 100% or Complete in the status window, then the full clip has been recorded.

Wmr can often record at up to 5 times the speed of the streaming video, for example...a 100 minute clip could be possibly recorded in 20 minutes.
The recording may stop a lot faster than the play time. It will download (DL) to 100%. Some downloads show completion at less then 100% (ex: 86%, or 99%) – especially the RM types. Play them back to verify the recording.
Compare the recorded clip with the original and you’ll see that most likely it is complete.

Best Regards,

Hi Walter

So you'r using WM Recorder then right? That is not supported on these forums, in the future please just open up a ticket and we'll answer it from there.

Thank you.
