  • 1. Windows Media Encoder Stereo Weirdness
    Has anyone noticed that when encoding stereo audio (line input) on a PC with a Sound Blaster or compatible sound card that both level meters show audio when only one channel (left I think) is connected? If you connect audio to the right channel only the right level meter shows audio presence. I've verified this on 3 separate machines using several PCI sound card vendors. I installed a sound recording utility on one of the affected PCs and it acts normal (left indication when audio connected only to left line input, right indication when audio connected only to right line input.) This seems to indicate that the weirdness is related to the Microsoft WME.

  • 3. Error (0x80070002) File not found during start of push to server
    WoW, Well I have been messing with this for a few days and have had great success but also great disappointment. Curenlty we are using Windows Media Encoder 9 on a private network to push streams to a Wincdows 2003 server. And to be completely honest it looks and works GREAT. My problem comes into play when I start a second encode session on the same encoder to point to the same server. 1. I start the first encode session and I am prompted for user id and password. (no problems on this part) 2. Then once that push has started I procedd to startup a second instance of WME9. 3. I then set the publishing point for the second encode and am prompted for user id and password. Again this goes with no problems. 4. Then when i click Start Encode I get an error that says. Error (0x80070002) File not found CAN ANYONE HELP. Also while doing a push to a server. I am not able to select any port other than 80. I have no firewall on either side....... Thanks
  • 4. WME install hangs
    I have tried a couple of times to install WME 9, the install appears to go to the end (100%, or near to it) then hangs/stops responding. I get similar results when performing an un-install for the program. Event viewer (Application) reported the following error: Product: Windows Media Encoder 9 Series -- The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2884. The arguments are: ErrorDlg, , Then: Product: Windows Media Encoder 9 Series -- The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2831. The arguments are: ProgressDlg, ProgressBar, setting And the following later: Product: Windows Media Encoder 9 Series -- Error 1722. There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action CA_WMSTypelib, location: C:\Program Files\Windows Media Components\Encoder\settmp.exe, command: /wrap:wmstypelib.exe /Q:A /R:N Any clues? Help will be appreciated.

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 
numerous codecs but have still not been able to get media encoder to "Covert

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

my music files except this particular song.  I have 
Windows XP and I think I have updated to the latest
