  • 4. Trouble Streaming From Server (protocol chaning?)
    Hello all. I am having trouble getting me files to stream from a server I have up. There are two issues really: (1) I am unable to stream, using mms://, when I am not inside the firewall and (2) the files I create using my VB6 WM9 Encoder are not found when I try to access them, but other files are. Concerning the inability to stream, my assumption is that the firewall between me and the server is preventing the streaming ports from getting through. If this is the case, does Windows Media attempt to connect through HTTP download? I can still get the files to play, but I can not randomly seek to any point in the stream. Can someone help point out the port(s) I will need to open up on my server firewall so that I can stream the contents via mms:// ? Onto number 2, I obviously can't test this without being able to stream, but I was having this problem when I was inside the firewall attempting to steam the media from the server. I could access any of the sample files that come in the ASFRoot directory, but I could not stream the files that I created and uploaded to the server via FTP. I had examples all ready to post, but they are useless until I figure the above problem. :( Anyone happen to have any guesses on this, until I can post the example? :) Many thanks for any help!!

Error: the Input Media Format is Invalid

I receive an Error: The Input Media Format is Invalid when 
trying to create new session to convert an AVI file to a 
Windwos Streaming Server file.

The AVI file information is as follows:
Height: 545
Width: 397
Duration: 0:00:33
Frame Rate: 15 Frames/second
Data Rate: 860kbps
Video Sample Size: 24 Bit
Video Compression: Cinepak Codec.

I can play this file in Windows Media Player but receive 
this error as soon as I save the session.

Please help.

Those width / height values have to be even numbers for the encoder
codecs to quantize - its a basic limitation.

You'll need to resize fractionally, I'd try moving up to 580 x 420px
using say AVISynth or a smiliar program. It will then work fine ;-)

1.ERROR Tthe input media format is invalid

I've reinstalled windows media encoder 9 several times as well as downloaded

3.error: The input media format is invalid

I have got this error: "The input media format is 
invalid." That's really strange because WMP is only one 
player that has this problem with this files. The other 
strange thing that happened to me was that i had a lots 
of problems with deleteing some files that was in 
cyrillic from the library.

4.WMP Error "The input media format is invalid" code C00D0BBB There must be a fix

I get this error on too many mp3s.  I have tried various tag editor
programs to fix, but have not so far found a repeatable process to
correct the errors.

And as Donald Rumsfeld says, "you don't know what you don't know", so
I don't know which files have a problem unless I test them all.

As anyone found any way that I can scan and update and fix an mp3
collection organised in directories so that WMP10 can play them all.

Winamp works with all the files, but not WMP10.




Hello....Any help would be appreciated...I recently 
downloaded a song and when i try to play it....a message 
pops up saying INPUT MEDIA FORMAT IS INVALID!   It has 
the option to close or web help.  Under web help it says 
Error# COODOBB8...unable to find help at this time.  My 
question is?  Why does the Windows Media Player play all 
my music files except this particular song.  I have 
Windows XP and I think I have updated to the latest
