  • 2. Capture of video
    The company I work for develops software to enhance video. We receive surveillance videos from various vendors. There are approximately 400+ vendors with their own proprietary format for saving video. Generally the vendors provide a player that one can view the saved video. We need to process/enhance the video but it is in some non-standard format that is not compatible with most systems. We would like to grab the video as it is being played at the rate it is being played. There are several catches to being able to do this - one being some players do bitblts and do not use the overlay plane while some do. Second, determining when a new frame is present to know to grab is the major question. Third, I can NOT disable the hardware acceleration since that would change the quality and rate of display of the video player and the video that I am grabbing. I have tried many, many approaches from grabbing bitmaps, surfaces, encoders, etc. None seem to completely do what I need to do. Any suggestions how to address these challenges?

  • 4. .NET / WMEncoderLib.WMEncoder / IO.File.Delete()
    I am using .NET 1.1 and WMEncoderLib 9. I am having trouble with the WMEncoder object holding onto files. I am catching the OnStateChange event and ensuring that the enumState is equal to WMENC_ENCODER_STOPPED. Once this condition is true, I call IO.File.Delete() on the original file - It executes without error. But the file is still there, but in a really strange state... it's there, but has no permissions on it. It stays that way until I end the process that my WMEncoder is in - then it disappears. Any suggestions?
  • 5. Screen Capture option not appearing in WME7
    Any particular reason why my Screen Capture option would be missing from WME7? I've uninstalled and reinstalled, and still no luck. This machine has had both 7 and 9 installed at various times, but our software works with 7 best. I've got other clients who are trying to use it and they can't do the screen grab either. Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks, Sam

Error: the Input Media Format is Invalid

Postby looknow12 » Fri, 21 May 2004 03:09:10 GMT

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 ;-)

Cheers - Neil

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