Hi all, not sure if this is the right place to post this but cant seem to find the right forum.

So Ive ripped alot of the TKD that was shown at the olympics by TVNZ using their HD internet streams and VLC. I now have a few large ASF files.

So my question is what is the best thing to do with them now? At the moment they are unseekable are not much good, I cant find much info out there on how/if its possible to make them seekable. If not is there a better format to convert them into?

In which case we would have to lock this discussion now because discussing the distribution of copyrighted material is not allowed in here.

TVNZ is licensed by the Olympic committee to broadcast the material. It's not TVNZ's material and there are strict rules in place.

Actually pretty much everything that screens on TV is licensed and not for redistribution.

AsfBin can make asf/wmv files seekable. It can also cut and join asf/wmv clips. Plus it's freeware :)
