Command Prompt doesnt seem to recognize the command line!!


I'm trying to split a .flv file by using flvparse, which is a Windows-only, command-line interface tool. I did get through to the directory by following instructions posted on another forum, however, command prompt doesn't seem to recognize the the .exe file. I'm an absolute novice at this, any help would be really appreciated!

Attaching a CP s/s, and here are the instructions I'm trying to follow (copy pasted from the forum)


For trimming the beginning and/or ending of videos, you can use FLVParser (http://dev2.avacast.com/FLVparser.zip ).
FLVParser is a Windows-only, command-line interface tool. After you unzip it, move its folder to C:\ for ease of use. Also for ease of use, copy/move the .flv file you wish to edit into the FLVParse folder.

To make edits, you need to know the in and out points where you want the edits. Use FLVPlayer to find these points. FLVPLayer only lists times in total number of seconds, not HH:MM:SS, but don't worry, FLVParser can handle that. In the FLVParse directory create a new blank text file called: CuePointFile.dat

This is the file FLVParser uses to edit from. Open it in NotePad, and enter the in point and out point, separated by a single blank space, like so: 2525 5150
Save, and close the file. Open up the command line interface and go to the FLVParse directory: cd C:\FLVParse

In the command line, enter this to edit the flv:
flvparse.exe FileToSplit.flv CuePointFile.dat

Your file will be split into THREE files: FileToSplit_0.flv contains from the beginning of your file up to the in point. FileToSplit_1.flv contains from the in point up to the out point. FileToSplit_2.flv contains from the out point to the end of the file.
Obviously, you can discard the "0" and "2" versions of the file. You can open the "1" version in FLVPlayer to check it edited correctly.

Thank you so very much!

You are using the basic cmd, try in elevated mode
Elevated Command Prompt - Windows 7 Forums

However looking at you screen shot, you may have to check the command over carefully. There does appear to be an error in the command. With my eyes, it is difficult at times to pick out the subtle shades of difference.
