I downloaded a ".mpg" file of a television episode. The episode is 42 minutes long. The file size is 180 Meg. For some reason Quicktime Player thinks the episode is just 7 minutes long and will only display or recongize the first 7 minutes.

I tried viewing the episode with Windows Media Player inside of Virtual PC and it recognizes the full length (42 minutes).

I have seen this with other movie files in the past. Does anyone know why this is so? Is there a way for me to fix the file or convert the file where I can view it properly with Quicktime Player?

Thanks in advance!
