  • 2. C# control of encoder; encoder monitor, stop detect, restart
    I'm looking at implementing a "monitor" or a watchdog for our WM Encoder 9 encoders. I work for a network that streams live sporting events and other programming and we've got a few internet "stations" that need to run 24/7. The encoders seem to "break" sometimes for inexplicable reasons; they quit. Basically what I need to do is write a .NET application (or some kind of script?) that will monitor the encoder that is running and if it stops, detects this condition and restarts automatically. I imagine there are probably cases were the encoder might "really break" meaning it crashes. I probably need a way to have some kind of communications timeout with the encoder so I can restart the entire encoder application if necessary. This application I want to write keeps us from having to monitor everything manually and doing manual restarts when we get an angry phone call. Thanks, D
  • 3. ac97 Vista problem with encoder
    Hi, I experience major problems with getting a AC 97 system up and running under Vista. I have a Gigabyte sinxp1394 Mobo with AC97 chipset and Vista ultimate. I upgraded the driver with the realtek 6.0.6243 version I downloaded from Realtek. Recording turned out to be impossible in an erratic way. Nor the build in sound recorder, The Microsoft media 9 encoder or Adobe Audigy see the mixer. After letting Windows sort out a new driver Windows installed the 5.0.6150 version of a Microsoft distributed Realtek driver. Now the standard sound recorder is able to see the stereo mixer I appointed as default recording device, but the Microsoft Media encoder does not. Turning on the Pin line onto the mixer from the encoder does not help. When I try to start the mixer from the encoder it can't find sndvol.exe. The mixer is set to 16 bit 44.1 KHz stereo as is the recording default. It made sense to me to use the same settings. Kind regards Tony Thijs Oriolus
  • 4. Control Encoder Remotely.
    Hi everybody, I need some help here. I need to write an application that controls the Encoder remotely (over the network/web). I need to have all options like start/stop/pause, should be able to show the preview window on the client side. Is it even possible to do it over the web? If yes, can someone point me to any documentation or article that explains how to do it? Thanks very much in advance for your help. Thanks! Jerry
  • 5. Setting unicast
    I am using Windows Media Service 9 encoder to send a live broadcast. I configure the server and publishing point and set the properties and when I close the properties window I get a message that the publishing point can't be access and that I need to create a multicast announcement. I am not trying to send a multicast, I am trying to send a unicast. I thought that the Media encoder sent in unicast by default. How do I set the encode for unicast?

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

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!!!!!
