  • 2. wmenc - WAKE UP !
    Hi, obeserved following problem under W2k (older 1,8 GHz PC) and actually identical under new system with XP (actual service pack installed): First (some weeks) the encoder runs as usual. Then (and what was changed are additionally installed programs, e.g. powerpoint, scannertools, and of course some video tools - which might be the reason) the encoder can be started BUT after giving in the sourcefile, the encoder "hangs" for several MINUTES before the next step is possible. This is repeated whith other inputs (e.g. after changing the size). So it needs at last about 10-15 minutes until one can start the encoding process. There are no error messages. The conversion itself then works properly. During the long waiting intervalls the task manager shows, that the CPU-load is about 2%, the harddisk also does nothing i.e. the whole 3,2GHz system indeed simply SLEEPS. One can observe (task manager) that the wmenc-task very slowly enhances the memory-account (about 0,2 MB per sec.) up to a final level of about 115MB - then this stops and the next input is allowed... I tested this with a short source file (ca. 70MB) but the memeory was enhanced again up to the level as described. I assume some conflicts with differnt video-codecs - but how to find out this without error messages and what to do to change this? Thanks

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 ;-)

Cheers - Neil

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
