  • 1. Increasing temp file size for double pass encoding
    I am encoding with Windows Media Encoder 9, double pass directly from a Sony DV camera through Firewire, without converting to an avi file. It works fine on 15 minutes segment but the full hour project is aborted repetitively with the error message: temp file too small, increase size of temp file and start again. I am using XP professional and cannot find the location to increase the default size of the temp file. I thank you in advance for any help.
  • 2. help in detecting silence while recording
    We have been going nuts trying to find a way to detect silence while recording with the encoder. Any help in point us in the right direction would be greatly appriciated. Thanks Bear

  • 4. Encoding JPEG's using Media 9 Encoder SDK
    Hi, Is it possible using the Media 9 Encoder SDK to encode a series of images in JPEG format into a .wmv/.mpeg file? I have managed to use the SDK to convert a single image into to a .wmv file but can't manage to do the same with a series of images. If its of any use, here's what I already have: ---------------------------------------- Set Encoder = New WMEncoder Set SrcGrpColl = Encoder.SourceGroupCollection Set SrcGrp = SrcGrpColl.Add("SG_1") Set SrcVid1 = SrcGrp.AddSource(WMENC_VIDEO) SrcVid1.SetInput "C:\Output\Image_20040107_141528_001.jpg" Set ProColl = Encoder.ProfileCollection lLength = ProColl.Count ' Profile selected here ' Fill in the description object members. Set Descr = Encoder.DisplayInfo ' Add an attribute to the collection. Set Attr = Encoder.Attributes Attr.Add "URL", "IP address" ' Specify a file object in which to save encoded content. Set File = Encoder.File File.LocalFileName = "C:\OutputFile.wmv" Encoder.Start ---------------------------------------- Thanks in adance for any advice!

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