  • 1. [video application] mpeg4 v3 problem and configuration
    Hi, I m working on video conferencing applicaiton and i m using microsoft mpeg4 v3. I m facing few problems. 1- when applications starts with 320x240 or less resolution, video window displays black color with camera captured object shadows but after a while it get ok. 2- when applications starts with 640x480 resolution, video window displays black with picture object shadows but it requires refreshing by waving hands near the camera. The procedure need to refresh after a while otherwise picture get noisy I m using IAMVideoCompression::put_KeyFrameRate() but i think mpeg4 filter always use default settings for sending key frames. Then i also change the bitrate by VIDEOINFOHEADER *pvi = (VIDEOINFOHEADER *)mt->pbFormat; pvi->dwBitRate =500000; if(pVSC->SetFormat(mt) == S_OK) { bFlg = TRUE; MessageBox("[testing] bitrate SetFormt works"); } and i got the msgbox but i wont change anything.. Please help me out. Regards Usman Sarwar
  • 2. How to write custom codec?
    I have the source code of a custom software codec for video compression and decompression. And I expect to package it into plugins so that general media player, such as WMP, can identify my custom video format. And ICCompress() can adapt to the codec as well. Does anybody know how to write the codec plugin interface? Thanks! -- Peng
  • 3. MMS Clients constantly need to buffer
    I have Windows Server 2003 running as a virtual PC running the media services. Using an on demand publishing point, people seem to have problems streaming videos from me. The wmv files im hosting are encoded at 400Kbps yet they still say that the videos are constantly buffering. The Windows Media Services Monitor claims they are streaming at 1400Kbps (while task manager claims its only sending at around 10KB/s, with spikes up to 150KB/s) however in task manager the connections always seem very unstable, spiking to 150KB/s then dropping for a good amount of time to almost nothing. These are people im able to do a direct file transfer to at about 220KB/s I am behind a router, but even setting the server to DMZ host doesnt seem to resolve the problem. Anyone have any ideas?
  • 4. How to periodically Start-Stop a WM Publishing Point
    Hello, I'm in need of solving the following issue. I have several Windows Media Services Publishing Points that I need to start and stop every 10-15 minutes, as I need to free up the archiving file for editing purpouses. In the test I'm doing, I do it manually, by quickly pressing "Stop" and after that "Play" over the Publishing Point context menu. I intend to do this programatically, by doing a small simple app in VB to control this. Can it be done? Any ideas where to start digging for sample code? Thanks for feedback! JJ
  • 5. Opening a wmv File
    I've just started using Windows Encoder (Ver 9) and created a Screen Capture file which appears to work fine but now I want to add some voice dialog to it. The file that was created is a wmv type and I am unable to select that file type in the Encoder? How do I accomplish this?

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 ;-)

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.
