Default Frozen frames....

I was just wondering if different players have/don't have filters built in that allows it to play through frozen frames. For example, in the DivX Player that came with the 5.0.2 build, it can play through frozen frames just fine. With WMP 6.4, the video would freeze while the audio continues playing. With VD, it halts the play and reports the bad frame. Is there any plugins or anything that I can install to the players that allows it to play through frozen frames (say in VirtualDub).

I also tried avi defreezer, but I have varying results with it. It works for some movies, but most of the time it generates a 0 bytes file or the resulting movie don't have audio.

VirtualDub is a Video Editing Program - and is not intended to be used as a player. It's playback abilities are used to help you find and FIX just the kind of problem you have, not to bypass it...

I found that trying to fix the frozen frames with VD ends up cutting out a sizeable chunk of the movie, and using avi defreezer creates more blocky pixels during playback than if I was to leave it alone. I managed to fix WMP so it will play through frozen frames by installing the avi antifreeze filter.

I want to know what are the reasons to fix frozen frames if you could just bypass them AND preserve the movie's original quality by viewing with a player such as WMP.

I was merely correcting your inclusion of VirtualDub as a "player"...


Try DivFix to actually repair the video...
