Hardware-Created ASF Files Stop Playing in Media Player 9 SeriesBy Thomas McGuire
TechSpot is about to celebrate its 25th anniversary. TechSpot means tech analysis and advice you can trust.
When you try to play back certain ASF files created by hardware devices, you may receive an error message approximately 3 or 4 minutes after playback has started.
When applications built on the Windows Media Format play back files, the applications make certain checks to determine if a packet is valid. The Windows Media Format incorrectly handles a case where the time wraps around because of the maximum value possible for numeric data types.
A fix is available for download from Microsoft.
