For your maximum safety, you should use this program on a backup copy first to avoid problems from possible bugs and from continuing the download later without stripping the index.
If you want to continue the download later, don't forget to strip the index!
!!! W A R N I N G !!!
If you have a partially downloaded movie and you want to look in it, then open the file with DivFix and use the "Rebuild Index" function. Now you can look the movie. If you want to continue the download, open the file again with DivFix, use the "Strip Index" function, finish the download and then use the "Rebuild Index" again to correct the file-size in the AVI header (the only data which is changed by DivFix from the original movie).
You can use DivFix with command-line parameters too (and you can use wildcards). For detailed help on the parameters use "DivFix.exe /?".
In some cases after using DivFix, the source file remain locked and cannot be deleted, but this looks like a WindowsXP bug for me. Some people reported problems using DivFix with the XVID codec, but unfortunately it works correctly all of my XVID films... :) There should be still some I/O-error (but hey, this is the first and only program i made with Borland Delphi... :). If you can send me a video that produce such error, i will try to fix it. But if you send meg bug-report, PLEASE write down the version number too... :)
(I should do many of those already, but don't have too much free time lately)
Support for AVIs larger than 2GB Keyboard shortcuts to the functions selectable prefix or suffix for the filename Selectable starting directory (fix or remember the last dir) Resizable form (i want to do this with my Delphi 3, so ideas are welcome) Rebuild only with a given size (ideal for a preview) Maybe a read-error handling (retry or ignore at read errors) The name of the temporary index and logfile will be created from the AVI filename At batch execution at an error, DivFix should continue with the next file Coloring the filenames in the listbox which are ready or which have problems
