Q: I'm looking for an efficient WMV cutter that can cut WMV files without reencoding. I have a 30-minute WMV concert, of which I'd like to get a 7-minute song. I have tried some software, but the problem is that they don't just slice off the unwanted portions, but seem to reencode the file together. Is there any program that just chops off the bits I don't want to, without causing any quality? Many thanks! - Jester Tear from VideoHelp Forum
