  • 1. Error messages while trying to convert AVI to WMV
    I am using Windows Media Encoder 9 to convert video files from AVI to WMV, and at first when I hit "start encoding" I got the error message 0xC00D1B83, telling me I needed codecs. I downloaded codecs from the site, as per an Archos tech's suggestion. However, now when I go to convert files and hit 'start encoding', I am getting a new error code - 0xC00D002F, which tells me I have invalid or corrupt data. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fix this? I am using Windows XP and Windows Media Encoder 9. Thanks for any suggestions -
  • 2. Create Encoder Exception at times: System.AccessViolationException
    At times on creating an encoder object mobjMediaEncoder = New WMEncoderLib.WMEncoder I get the following Exception: "System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt" This happens once in a while. Any pointers to resolve this issue will be greatly appreciated. The .Net 2.0 version is being used.
  • 3. Problem With Wma Codec FrameRate Or nBlockAlign Size
    Hi All, I'm using WMA-9 codec to encode audio streams. After proper configuration, of WMA Encoder DMO, I get option only to get 3 or (max) 5 audio frames per sec(or limited 'nBlockAlign' value). (With lame mp3 encoder I used to get 20ms ie almost 50 frames per sec.) Since frame resolution for audio is very less I'm facing problem synchronising higher FPS video streams(eg. more than 8 FPS...). I'm using DShow filters for WMA codecs through Win32 application. Anyone knows the trick or way to get more audio frames per sec or to set custom 'nBlockAlign' value to WAVEFORMATEX output structure of WMA Encoder. Thanks, - Aditya.
  • 4. Poor colour adjustment question
    I am converting a PAL uncompressed AVI to an interlaced WMV in WM Encoder 9 using the advanced video profile. The output looks great but it is brighter (less contrast - blacks are raised) than the original and has a yelllow cast over it. This shows in the input and output windows as well as the final file. I have tried various options in terms of quality, but with no change. I have searched for a plug-in that would give me some control over colour but had no luck. Can anyone offer some advice. Thanks
  • 5. Can Windows Mobile's devcie be a client of WME9 broadcast
    I have set up a video broadcast session with WME9. It works fine when I use Windows Media Player on a desktop to connect to it. However, when I try the same URL from Windows Media Player 10 on a Windows Mobile devcie, I get the following error message: "Cannot play the file. The file is either corrupted or the Player does not support the format you are trying to play" Could anyone offer some explanation? Hong

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!!!!!
