  • 2. Can not get Encodoer to record both video and audio from the net.
    Can anyone help me please? The first time I used Encoder to copy some tutorials from the net which the author allowed me to was the last time I was able to do a "Screen Capture" at the same time as capturing the audio portion of the tutorial. I have been unable to find any way duplicating this success again. I have tried the same site even and several different combinations of settings all for naught. Can anyone please get back to me and tell me how to set up the Encoder to consistently copy videos from the internet which include audio tracts. I am trying to take advantage of times when we have internet to collect some resources for my students use when we don't have access. I live in the north of Canada and our internet connection can be sporadic to say the least. I would greatly appreciate a detailed step by step how to set up the encoder to make such copies. I am on a Pent. 4 Dell running Windows XP Prof. and am using Window's Encoder 9 Series. I have become very frustrated trying to repeat my earlier success and would appreciate any and all assistance. -- Bryan
  • 3. Screen Capture from a Windows Service
    I was successful in doing this with a service running under the Local System Account. But when I specify a diferent log-on it doesn`t work. There is no error msg logged in the Event Log. It just records pitch black. I thought I might be able to fix that by using diferent configuration options, such as providing a value other than "ScreenCapture1" or "default_video_device" to the ScreenCap input. But I found no documentation or example of other acceptable values... Can someone help me? Thanks!
  • 4. WME & WMS - Port Problems with Windows Firewall
    Hello Group, we have a nasty liitle problem here: we have a Server with two IPs - one for IIS, one for WMS. Problem: When we push a livestream from WME to WMS, it takes FOREVER to establish connection. Yes, we did http.sys, HTTP Enabled on Port 80 on WMS, all IIS websites listen only on other IP, BUT: when I switch off the firewall, suddenly WME connects immediatly. (I of course opened firewall ports on TCP ports 80 (and 8080) for encoder & players... Has anyone encountered similar problems? I am kind of stuck here... cheers thomas
  • 5. Encoding???
    I have installed and am running encoder. I made a movie (46 minutes long) on Windows movie maker - it was recorded on a Hi8 camera and loaded into my computer! It was nicely edited and everything was looking good. I copied it onto a CD and took it over to my husbands laptop with DVD burner. I burned the DVD and it won't play in the DVD player - appearantly it is not an MP2 file - duh! So now, I am encoding it in my computer - with 4 hours down and 8 to go - just wondering if it usually takes 12 hours to encode a 46 minute movie or if something is truely not right! Any comments would be really helpful. I bought a DVD burner for my computer today and will install it later (with NERO)!!

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
