I have been attempting to splice (cut out) small clips of video from large .asf files (~1.5 GB a few hours long). The forums recommended Avidemux. I downloaded both GTK and QT. They both give me the same problem: when I save the video that I've demarcated with the A-B function, I get good video, but my audio sounds like it's a machince gun sputtering bullets. This happens regardless of whether I "copy" video and audio, or use any assortment of file 'format' types. I've also tried to mess around with the 'audio preferences' to see if that helps, but it has not.

Any suggestions?
