  • 1. Port issue?
    Hello, I am trying to broadcast a live shot from my webcam over the internet. The farthest I have gotten is being able to view the video over the LAN but not over the internet (i think.) Anyways I think this is a problem with port forwarding. I have an actiontec dsl router and I have my computer setup as and on the router I have port 8080 set to forward to and when I setup the encoder and try to access it from another computer by using my external IP address with the port listed after it, it does not find it. Anyone have any ideas... I want to add this to my webpage but so far I can only get it on the LAN but not over the internet... Or can I not access it from a computer on the LAN when trying to access it via the external IP? Thanks for your help. MAtt
  • 2. Media encoder 9 remains open in tasklist
    Hi again! i sill have trouble with the encoder 9! On some machines (seems mostly XP SP2) the encoder behaves strange after starting the encoder and loading a profile for encoding (just any profile with any soucres or settings behaves alike) and later closing the encoder (wheter after encoding or yust after loading the profile) the encoder remains open (task manager reports one open thread) even though the UI does close if i wait for abot 50 to 90 seconds the remainig task closes and the encoder can be starte again normally just to find it hanging in the tasklist again after closing it ..... poorly the problem is independent from the capture device. Even if i choose the screen codec or msdv as source the described behavior happens. I didnt select pull from encoder or broadcast. I set up the encoder for archiving to file and add index. can anyone help me with that ?
  • 3. AVI deinterlacing using method v_preproc 2
    I try to encode a file which is AVI (uncompressed) 640x480 30fps (square pixels) to 320x240 30 fps using command v_preproc 2. The problem is the encoder shows "preprocessing mode not supported" and automatically sets the height and width. What should I do. I think method of deinterlacing is the best way for a high quality picture output...
  • 4. Terribly lost and confused
    I've read and followed the online tutorial on setting up WME. However, being more of a hardware guy than a software guy, I think I am hopelessly lost. Is anyone willing to spend about 15 minutes with me in a live IM chat to get a live fire scanner up and operational for a fire department? So far, I have WME installed and it is listening to the test music I have playing. I have a account set up. Thats as far as I got. I have no clue where to go from here.

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
