How do I fix a wmv file with a frame rate of 0?

I can't import a wmv file into Camtasia because it has a file rate of 0. Not sure what to do next.

I have a JVC camcorder which out puts MOD files which Camtasia doesn't accept (fair enough, it's proprietary). I was looking for an open source converter and the only one I could find that worked was Free WMV Converter. So I converted my files using the auto functions and it created wmv files with a "frame rate of 0".

I have tried to change the frame rate on the converter but it is greyed out.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Hi Chris,
I am not familiar with the MOD or how to change a frame rate in that software.

I've had success with this tool before: http://www.any-video-converter.com/pr...

Hopefully others out there can offer their insight!

I don't use Any Video Converter. I like Faasoft's great Video Converter more. Here is a step by step guide on how to convert MOD to other popular video formats like MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV, MKV, FLV, etc with this tool at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/mod-converter.html

Besides, there is also a tutorial on how to change Frame Rate of a video with this tool at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/frame-rate-converter-mac-and-windows.html

Hope it is what you are looking for.

Chris, we have a support article with links to a number of converters, you may be able to reencode either the original file or the WMV. You can also try playing the files and recording your desktop player with Camtasia Studio to create a brand new recording.

And have you talked to JVC? They should have converter software to create other formats such as WMV, MOV, or mp4.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The IT guy told me Any Video Converter leaves a watermark on video unless you buy a copy. It took me months to get Camtasia bought and installed so I am hoping to find an open source solution they will just install for me. So I am going to try this one next

All the JVC software I have found is not Windows 7 compatible.

Ok, modconverter is only free if you want to convert half a file!

I tried what Mike suggested and it works! It is not the one I thought it was.

Definitely recommend

I just spent about two hours trying to figure this out. I just found this thread but more importantly, I found this: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/convert-...

Just rename the file by making the file extension into .mpg. Crazy.

I am now using www.zamzar.com to convert the file into an mp4. {sigh}

I'll report back if it works in Camtasia.
