Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
What's new in version 1.8.3 Command line
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Added output file duration micro-corrections to make it more precise when joining multiple files together.
2. All markers, scripts and attributes input files used to provide the list of data to embed in the resulting output file now can handle correctly UTF-8 text files allowing using any languages like Japanese or Arabic. Escape characters may be now used. IMPORTANT! To get '' into ASF file you need to escape it by doubling it ('').
3. AsfBin can fix files that were having incorrect entries in the metadata object preventing it from playing by major video players like VLC or Media Player Classic.


What's new in version 1.8.2
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Corrected issue with processing large files having script command stream. Asfbin was running out of memory in these cases (for files >2GB).
2. Corrected codec initialization function when joining two segments and the first segment does not have samples in a stream for which we are initializing a codec.


What's new in version 1.8.1
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. A bug connected with processing files containing script command stream corrected has been fixed. The total time spread of all samples gathered in a single packet could go beyond 65536 ms, what was against ASF specification.
2. Fixed Asfbin issue of loosing last script command sample.
3. Fixed issue of timing of script commands and markers stored in ASF header after cutting out fragments from an original file when actual start time differs from demanded time due to distand key frame location.
4. FINALLY, thousands of tests was performed to find and correct any existing bugs.


What's new in version 1.8.1
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. The way Markers and Script commands are stored where radically changed to sort out the continuous problems with them.
2. Fixed markers dialog and script commands dialog. Now you can edit them and it works. You can delete existing markers, add new ones or change times or text of exisitng markers. It applies also to script commands.
3. Attributes setting dialog was fixed.
4. Pressing Enter was closing AsfBinWin. Now Enter acts as Space on buttons or confirmation action on other active elements.
5. Fixed routine that was checking if we are not writing to one of the ibput files.


What's new in version 1.8.0
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Finally added preview window allowing you precisely selecttimes when editing should take place. The are multiple ways of selecting time: - keys (arrows, page up/down, home/end) - mouse - speed modifiers (hold Shift and/or Control keys to modify the behaviour) Preview allows you to select which video stream to view andcan snap time to an exact frame presentation time.
2. All path inputs are equipped with AutoComplete feature speeding up the process of typing path (input/output paths). You can still use the Browse button to open the standard Open/Save dialog.
3. Most of the crucial controls have Tooltips associated explaining how to use them.
4. Range slider, allowing you to select time ranges within selected files nicely show you by using different colors where each file, constituting the virtually connected file, starts and ends.
5. Ability to invert selected ranges by just one button click.
6. Advanced setting dialog simplified.
7. Logging capability added. You can select one of 3 availableverbosity levels when writing to the log file.
8. You can load and save Script Command to and from external file.
9. You can load and save Markers to and from external file.
10. When precise recompression is not possible due to missing codeds warning signs are shown (with associated tool tips).
11. Preview window position can be snapped to the main window edges.


What's new in version 1.7.14

1. Corrected issue with processing over 4GB files.
2. Corrected problem with scripts not beeing copied from the original file if copying range was not specified.
3. Corrected the issue with the script samples distance limitation that was set to 65s. Now it can be unlimited.


What's new in version 1.7.1

1. Totally rewritten sample packing algorithm so even multiaudio files with no video are packed optimally. This will also fix problems with files containing script commands and some issues with streaming ASF files via Windows Media Server.
2. Finally added DMO support when recompressing video. By using one of two new switches -vcm and -dmo a desired technology can be selected. By default it is VCM.
3. Added -infohdr switch to show all info from ASF header.
4. Added -optps switch that calculates the optimal size of the packet to minimize data padding.
5. Corrected timing of script commands and markers stored in the header after cutting out fragments from an original file when actual start time differs from demanded time due to distand key frame location.
6. Removed size limitation of record data in metadata objects in header.


What's new in version 1.6.1

1. The total file size info kept in the ASF header was not properly updated. This resulted in lack of seeking possibilities when streaming processed file via Windows Media Server.
2. Bug connected with processing files containing script command stream corrected. The total time spread of all samples gathered in a single packet could go beyond 65536 ms, what was against ASF specification.
3. Asfbin was losing last script command sample. This bug is corrected in this version.


What's new in version 1.6.0

1. FINALLY! After 3 years! Solved the mistery behind the old tape effect in the Windows Media Player - defeated buggy jitter correction algorithm in the MS WMPlayer produtcs! It was possible by adding audio decompression feature to asfbin and thus real sample duration measurement became possible. An advanced junction optimization algorithm was implement resulting in smooth connections between audio tracks of joined ASF files.
2. Added new switches allowing to set creation time of a resulting file to the time of the source file properly corrected by the start time offset (-act). Second related switch is -nots which causes all sample times remain as in original files.
3. Added possibility to process files still recorded by live stream recording software or WMS archive plugin. Other corrections was made in order to repair almost all cases of damaged files.
4. Optimized file processing. Time spared thanks to those optimizations is used to calculate precise audio junctions (this needs some audio samples to be uncompressed).
5. Some minor issues with segment cutting and joining were corrected.
6. Thousands of tests was performed to find and correct any existing bugs.


What's new in version 1.5
1. New quality in cutting ASF files! AsfBin is capable to cut files at any position with the accuracy to one video frame regardless there is a key frame or not, while maintaining maximum fidelity to the original. To enable this feature use -rkf switch. This is not enabled by default because so far not all video formats are supported.
2. To perform system configuration check in order to enable as many codecs as possible for AsfBin use -cfg switch. AsfBin performs this check anyway, but only once for given Windows configuration.
3. Improved recovery of damaged ASF files.


Features added in version 1.1:
- Saving segments to a separate ASF files
- Inverting selection, so you can easily point the fragment to be deleted
- Adding markers and commands (at last!)
- Delaying selected streams (not necessarily audio streams)
- Printing out information on key frames location
- Control over the type of indexing
- Cutting fragments adjusted precisely to key frames locations


What's new in version 1.0.3:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Improved packet data repair routines. Some damages (1-3 bytes long) withing packet or sample data can be repaired.
2. Improved searching for time range withing data packets when some packets are damaged or not conforming ASF specification.
3. Removed bug causing script commands not to be written.
4. Correcting bug causing bad padding data handling. Speeding up packets reading.
5. Other improvements of data packets reading.
6. Improved header reading routines. Asfbin is much more error-proof when it comes to header parsing.
7. Asfbin can now index files larger than 4GB.
8. When connecting a file with the script commands or markers with a file having no such objects, asfcut was crashing. This bug is removed.


What's new in version 1.0.2:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Major Win95, 98, Me incompatibilities fixed. The function for opening files were Unicode version only. That caused no input file could be opened by asfbin in the Win9x. That proofs clearly that asfbin 1.0.1 wasn't "strongly" tested under Win9x enviroment. ;-)
2. Major improvements in a header parsing code. Now some errors in the header will cause only minimal loss of data.
3. Code review detected many weak points, where application might crash.
4. Limit to pack only one audio sample in a packet was removed. The limit was introduced because some players were loosing audio when playing resulting files. And I supposed that the lack of this limitation was causing such a behavior. It was not true. Also processing of some files could be very slow.
5. Files with empty streams (with no samples in it) were processed terribly slow. This bug is already removed.
6. Removed a bug connected with indexing of files having hidded streams.
7. When removing a stream the information on bitrate mutual exclusion wasn't updated. Now it is correct.
8. In some very rare case packets were built inefficiently breaching ASF specification. Also for some very large packet sizes, payload count could overflow the limit of 64 payload per packet. Already correct.


What's new in version 1.0.1:
---------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Corrected minor bug in the displaying duration of processed segments. The on-screen message said alway that duration was to the end. The output files weren't affected by this bug.
2. Corrected bugs when reading segments from segments file.
3. Corrected bug cousing file not to be written when the first sample time was smaller than the preroll time.

This application needs a tag to "Windows Media Player Error Message C00D11B1". I spent at least a half a day looking for a way to solve for this error message. I stumbled onto this app through this forum, after hours of searching. With the number of search results I found, I am hardly the only one needing help. Every time I tried to watch a video, it threw the error message previously mentioned and crashed the player.

I downloaded the application, and selected the file that was giving me the error message. Then I stared at the screen for about 20 minutes trying to figure out what to do next. That would be my only complaint. I saw the "cut/copy/join" button but that was the last thing I would have thought I needed. As a last resort I clicked on that button and boom, the new file was created. I have played the video now without a problem. Thanks for your help.

Worked perfectly for fixing corrupted WMV files.
Would be good if output files could renamed automatically to something similiar to the input file's name, instead of a generic filename.

Quoting the developer:
"I would like to hear from you a bit on the usage of the window version of Asfbin - AsfbinWin.
It looks like you are still using other GUI apps that uses asfbin command line
in the background as a slave worker. That's why I updated the AsfbinWin with
the preview capabilities so that there is no need on using thrid party tools."
. . .
"for repairing or editing ASF/WMV files AsfbinWin is meant to be the best and the most powerful. If it is not the case yet, please let me know ;)"

O.K., here you go Rad. I have sorely needed something like this that could trim or repair WMV files. But this tool -- however capable it may be -- seems pretty obtuse to the uninitiated. "Intuitive" in the description is greatly stretching it. I have been to your site (though not very recently), and did not manage to find any helpful guides -- there, here on VH, or elsewhere -- to steer me in the right direction. Just a longish list of command line switches, and that is pretty far from an illustrated guide ! With a fair amount of exploratory trial and error, I have now successfully trimmed a WMV file. So far, so good. (But a good thing it did not require more extensive editing, as I"m not at all sure I could have worked that out.) The file could only be saved as ASF, and I don't understand enough about this to know why. I'm still hoping to figure out how to repair a damaged or corrupt WMV file. I'm guessing it will involve the ForceIndex function. Hopefully a guide would address this also. Some decent documentation will boost the usefulness of this tool immeasurably. (And tool ratings would have to be adjusted upwards.)

Since this is not the proper place for discussions, if we continue this it should be in a regular VH thread.

Hi all,

It's great to hear that you enjoy using Asfbin. I would like to hear from you
a bit on the usage of the window version of Asfbin - AsfbinWin.
It looks like you are still using other GUI apps that uses asfbin command line
in the background as a slave worker. That's why I updated the AsfbinWin with
the preview capabilities so that there is no need on using thrid party tools.
Some of them, like AsfTools, simply steal the work of command line tools creators
with not even saying a word whom they are relying on when doing the work.

That's why I have introduced a Human Test to prevents this.
In some cases I see it's troblesome for a legitimate user, that write
their own batch files or they process large files (that I am considering
extending the time interval between human test appears).
Human test could be avoided also if authors of the GUI apps take their
time and ask simply for a permission to use asfbin. I believe, that in
many cases they could get it.

But I would like to hear from you, users, what features you are missing in AsfbinWin
so you rather stick with thrid party GUI.
Some use cases are big GUI integrting apps (which apps?) which does a lot of work
to produce e.g. BluRays. So AsfbinWin cannot replace it, but just for repairing
or editing ASF/WMV files AsfbinWin is meant to be the best and the most powerful.
If it is not the case yet, please let me know ;)

Thanks for your feedback,
Rad.

Ease of use 9 of 10 Functionality 8 of 10 Value for money 9 of 10 Overall score 9 of 10


For people having problems using Cut Assistant with latest versions of asfbin where a Human Test question is asked, you have to check the "Show originial Application Window" in the Asfbin configuration window (under the option menu).

There, you will see a Dos prompt window appearing where you can just enter the answer, then the cutting process start.

Hope it helps

Ease of use 6 of 10 Functionality 10 of 10 Value for money 10 of 10 Overall score 9 of 10


During the cutting process using Cut Assistant 0.9.13.16, the AsfBin progress window asked me to answer a simple "Human Test" question but didn't allow any keyboard input to give the answer, making Cut Assistant (or any app using the AsfBin command line) useless for editing wmf files.

Great tool. Many thanks to the coder. Please add these options for the next version.
1. Drag&drop support
2. Output file extension and name format needs to be improved. If the file is Myvideo.wmv , and it should be better if the output is saved in the same directory and named as Myvideo(2).wmv or Myvideo-fixed.wmv or Myvideo-asfbin.wmv. Naming the output file as out.asf is not cool.
3. "Fix broken wmv files" option in main window will be fine. 1.6x versions make this with the reindex.bat.
4. In the file header some deep settings such as Aspect ratio (par), resolution or wmv codec 8 or 9 change will be very usefull for people who uses external media players or tvs that can play video from usb.

Awesome app now provides preview of resultant file and is now my preferred tool for editing of wmv files. Not a deal breaker, but it would be perfect if it also offered drag and drop support. Many thanks to the author for his hard work and generosity.

Excellent tool for editing wmv files when paired with Cut Assistant. Cut Assistant provides visual preview of the resultant file and gives the option of cutting out multiple parts or cropping a single segment and AsfBin does the behind the scenes work. I am happy to report that this combo works in Windows 7 x64. Many thanks to the author of this great tool.

It would be nice if it had a visual preview. But it works so fast! It repairs files that Windows Media Player can't open, among other uses.

Superb (tiny) program to clip segments from larger WMV/AVI files
Very quick too. You end up with a .asf file that plays in Windows Media Player

This is a great tool for converting and cutting and joining asf (wmv) files. The quailty of the video and audio stays intact. This one of the fast encoder I've ever used. Highly recommend for those who need a quick edit.
