    I am reading a directory containing two video files, the two files are the same just change the name.
    The first time this is done ReadText = System.IO.File.ReadAllText (FullName); The program takes about 10 seconds,
    when it goes to the next video, I get stuck and do everything in practice crash in visual studio.
    I do not understand why can you help me?

    Ps the video files are about 500mb

    PPS sorry for my bad english

    1. You read the video as text, when there are bytes


    the video files are about 500mb
    - maybe you do not have this amount of RAM 

    3. Look into event viewer - some errors there?

    4. Why you are reading the video as text?

    i think the probelm was file, For safety, I also included this 

    readText = System.IO.File.ReadAllText(FullNomeFile);

    I would now like to replace an older text within the file and save it. 

    I have tried so

             File.WriteAllText(Path.Combine(txtDestinazione.Text, NomeFile), System.IO.File.ReadAllText(FullNomeFile).Replace(DataAcquizisioneAfter,DataAcquizisioneBefore));

    the saved file has 772,718 rows, the original file 27718, because I have all these extra lines.
    If I do I edit the file from notepad and save it, there is no problem, I would do the same thing with c #

    My question is this: if they are video files, should you be using ReadAllText?

    "Opens a text file, reads all lines of the file into a string, and then closes the file": http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.io.file.readalltext(v=vs.110).aspx

    ok, so it seems to work  

       readText = System.IO.File.ReadAllText(FullNomeFile, System.Text.Encoding.Default);

    I need to change the date "media item creation" tab ORIGIN properties.
    The only way I found was this.
