  • 1. Stream or download of files
    How do I encode so that my viewers may both stream, or download the file for later viewing or to burn to cd?
  • 2. Two live streams in one web page
    I have setup two WM9 encoders, one live video stream from a camcorder/osprey capturecard, and one live stream from a screen capture. Both streams are embedded into a single webpage. It works very nice, but i have some troubles getting the two streams in sync. When I setup the screen capture encoder to QualityVBR, the result is improved, but the two streams are still 3-5 sec. out of sync. Any ideas how to improve this? -- Torben Andresen
  • 3. What Encoder Settings To Generate WMV that can be imported int
    Not exactly. By understanding which settings would control this 'horizontal distortion', I might be able to play with it to tune it to an acceptable format. So far the only thing I'm able to replay the WMV in clearly is RealPayer. I can't even get the WMV to play at it exact size in the MediaPlayer. The MediaPlayer keeps resizing it or something. All I know is the characters look jagged and the screen capture is slightly smaller when MediaPlayer playback. Please note: I'm recording at 800x600 with 16-bit color. I playback at 1024x768 at 16-bit color. Hardward accel has been turned off. The rect area of screen I captured is about 750x595. I'm using CBR @ 15fps and about 256K bit rate. I'll see if FlashPlayer has a similar newsgroup.

    Does anyone know what encoder settings I should use to generate a WMV screen capture that can be successfully imported into Macromedia Flash MX? So far I have been unable to get the generated WMV to import succesfully without distortion (i.e. look slight horizontal is screwed up like when adjusting a TV set). Is there a certain compression setting I should use? -- -123

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 ;-)

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
