And that's denigrating and patronizing, but so you have it.

I think it hardly can be considered "the work of others" or even "a 
work" in the light of things, because it was not inspired but compelled, 
but have it your way. That software has consistently failed to play 
anything I threw at it and has caused me more time than it ever rewarded 
me with, so I consider it... too worthless to exist yes.

Maybe you shouldn't go patronizing someone as the first answer to a 
question you've been asked, or that you're trying to answer, with 
respect to the situation of it.

But I still thank you for your answer.

I know and I have tried it many times but it does not skip to the last 
frame consistently, for one thing.

Well thank you. Now was that so hard to do? Yes, I can patronize as well 


Anyway, thanks for this information, I wish it could be just about the 
information instead of telling others what to do and what not to do and 
all of that.
