windows media encoder

Using Windows Media Encoder 9.00.00.2980 on XP 2002 w/ SP3.

Problem: WME takes a LONG time (five minutes or more) to shut down after a video is done being captured. The nature of what we're videoing makes this 5+ minutes of time spent waiting for the program to shut down a real issue.

If we force a stop in the program (usually by rebooting the computer; yeah, I know, not the best solution) the video is generally saved in viewable condition but without the ability to fast-forward/rewind, etc.

If we wait long enough WME WILL shut down eventually.  However, as mentioned waiting is not always an option.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to either
  • reduce or eliminate the post-capture delay in shutting down
  • fix video's that do not have FF/RW capabilities
Thanks for your suggestions...
