Windows 7 - trim wmv video without re-encoding

Asked By Jeff on 11-Nov-08 03:51 PM
Is there a program that will allow me to trim a wmv video without having to
re-encode it?  Windows Media Encoder can't trim a video and Windows Movie
Maker always forces you to re-encode the video even if all you do is trim 1
minute from the begining of a video.

Movie Maker would be my choice.

Have you tried the Windows Media File Editor that comes with the Windows
Media Encoder download?

Speaking for myself only.
See for some helpful WMP info.
