  • 1. Asynchronization of Live Stream
    In Windows Media Encoder 9, running on a windows 2k box, I am playing a short (20 sec) video clip in a loop, and broadcasting this. The clip is encoded as a windows media video 9 CBR clip at a high bitrate. If I combine this looping clip with a live stream, and switch between the two source groups, then the audio and video lose synchronization, and the audio is anywhere from a few ms to a few seconds earlier than the video. Has anyone else had this problem? I want to have a preloop set up before I switch to the live source, and I would like to be able to do this with source groups. Thanks, Dan
  • 2. Creating a movie
    Hi to all I am new to the subject, so forgive my stupidities. I want to create a movie (avi or mpeg) in which I want to fully draw the frames. The problem (so far) is: I can't find (yet) a way to use a library that allows me to feed the movie, frame by frame. (I also overviewed DirectShowNET and DirectX.Capture.) I only find ways of setting the source. But I want to be the source. Any hints would be appreciated. I program in C# (if important). Petru
  • 3. WMV-HD editor
    Is there a software existing to edit WMV-HD discs or do we have to hand-write all codes (.htm, .js files etc)?
  • 4. Screen Capture Codec
    when trying to do a screen capture with WME, I get: "Not implemented" 0x80004001 I get the same error when I try to start the same codec through a VB or C++ program. I have re-installed WME 3 times, so I dont think that will help. Other codecs work fine, just not the sreen codec. Anything else I need to install? Peter

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 
numerous codecs but have still not been able to get media encoder to "Covert

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 
version of Windows Media Player.  PLEASE HELP!!!!!
