  • 1. Are there some difference in decoding 264 bs using ATI video card and NVIDIA video card?
    Dear All, I'm doing sth about encode/decode HD image sequence use video card. Now, I have done code on decode 264 bs by NVIDIA video card(8600GT). But when I use the code decoding 264 bs by ATI video card(HD3600), there are exception during transform filter running. According to "DirectX Video Acceleration Specification for H.264/AVC Decoding", I haven't found any tip about difference between ATI and NVIDIA. And these video card support dxva entirely, guaranteed by ATI and NVIDIA. Could anyone kindly tell me the difference between ATI's dxva and NVIDIA's dxva, Or where to adjust in transform filter to fit ATI's code? With best regards Tristan

  • 3. How to Convert Movie into Broadband Status?
    hey ive got a question bout windows media encoder 9. ive been making some videos and compressing them via windows movie maker for a few months now and uploading the files to the likes of youtube. anyhow, after i convert the files in MM, they seem to play pretty well but when i put them on the web, they look like garbage. i asked a friend how he made his movies look so good and he said he uses media encoder 9 and converts them to streaming broadband before uploading them. since i had asked him many other questions before that, i didnt want to feel like a nag and came here. so i dowloaded the product and theres a buttload of options and stuff in here. im warry to use it; a popup came up and said people could access it or somthing if i didnt block them. so, how do i convert the AVI files to 'streaming broadband' before uploading all while being safe? thanks for the help.

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 ;-)

Cheers - Neil

1.ERROR Tthe input media format is invalid

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
