  • 2. Can't convert MPG file
    I am trying to convert an MPG file to WMV (for use on a pocket pc, but that is not really the issue here). I can convert AVI files, but not MPG files. I also cannot convert these files using movie maker (no video appears, just sound). I have removed .ax files associated with pinnacle and moonlight-elecard, which were identified as causing crashes in WME9. Now I get a crash with gibberish. I have intervideo's registered as the preferred mpeg-2 decoder (using the Windows XP video decoder check utility), but have also tried unsuccessfully to use ATI atidvcr.dll and Cyberlink's I have two TV cards in the system, the ATI all-in-wonder 9600XP and a HDTV card (DVICO). I have used the Graphedit utility to look at the MPEG 2 chain, and the picture looks just like the tutorial using Intervideo. I have also tried removing and reinstalling WME9 multiple times. Now I am stumped. I really don't want to convert the files to avi before conversion, because the intermediate files are quite large. Any thoughts??
  • 3. can't change fps
    Hi! I am using an external USB grabber (empia EM2800 chip) as a source for media encoder 9 on a Win2003 Server. I want to stream in 320*240 with 5 (five) fps. Although all settings seem to be ok (compression user defined, 100 kbit, 5 fps, WMV7/8/9), about 15 fps are compressed and sent to a connected media player. On the media encoder statistics page I can see under video output: "max fps: 5.00, current fps:10.70, average fps: 10.80", under video input it says: "max fps: 5.00, current fps: 12.80" The result is a CPU utilisation of 100% and a poor picture quality due to the many frames that have to be compressed. It seems that the frame rate of the grabber can't be changed from 25 fps. I tried many different drivers but it didn't help. Thanks for helping Andreas Schultze

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

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
