Windows Media Player Seek Bar

I have Windows Vista and WMP 11. On most music videos that I have in my library, the seek bar (slider) at the bottom of WMP works just fine for rewinding and fast forwarding.

However, there are some videos that the seek bar is completely messed up on. For instance, I can move the seek bar at the halfway point and it will only take it 5 minutes into a 90 minute video. Or sometimes, when I progress the seek bar even further, it will take it back to an earlier spot in the video. And when I move the seek bar all the way towards the end it will only take it to about 75% of the video, rather than 99%, which it should be.

This also messes with the time display. For instance, I'm watching an entire concert which must be about 90 minutes long and the display says the entire thing is only 5 minutes, 15 seconds. So when I move the bar to the halfway point which should be about the 45 minutue mark, the display will say it is only 3 minutes into the video.

Any idea why some videos do this? Anybdoy know how I can fix it? I really don't feel like sitting through the entire 90 minutes every time I want to check out my favorite band's performance. That's the other thing too, I think if I just sit there and leave the seek bar alone it will actually play the entire video. But you cannot fast forward or rewind.

Any help would be appreciated.
