I have this AVI file

Windows Media Player plays it properly.

VLC cuts off in the middle of the last word.

I'm looking for a few other programs-other than WMP- that I can use to play it without cutting off during the last word.

Have you considered filing this as a bug to the VLC team? I'm sure they're interested in what's causing the issue. – Nitrodist May 31 '11 at 20:53
@Nitrodist I have emailed their mailing list no response yet but they might look into the bug. I am having technical problems accessing their forum so can't post about the problem there. – barlop May 31 '11 at 21:00
so.. i'm looking for a few programs that'll play it – barlop May 31 '11 at 21:30
KM Player is able to play it. So, that and WinAmp – barlop May 31 '11 at 23:01
don't like KM Player, it popped up when I didn't want it and hijacked my icons even after uninstalled, but anyway. – barlop Jun 1 '11 at 16:43

MediaSource 5 player works fine (as does windows live photo gallery). It is an interesting VLC bug though.

EDIT: Winamp also works. Edit: Realplayer also works.

i'm interested in a few plays that do.. but that aside, is MediaSource available for free anywhere - any link? – barlop May 31 '11 at 20:48
Actually, I'm assuming that it came installed on my system, as I don't recall installing it. here is the link: – soandos May 31 '11 at 20:49

Sorry I did not realize that it did not contain a link to their own product (weird...) here is a link to download:… – soandos May 31 '11 at 21:04
