  • 1. Poor Saturation on Encoded Video
    Why does everyone look like a Goth music fan (pale and ghostlike) after I encode my media with WME I am starting by capturing content from a miniDV source tape into Adobe Premier Pro. Some very basic edits are made with Premier. There is no color correction or any filters applied however. I then export the sequence to a DV AVI file and the color quality and saturation look fine when this file is played back in Windows Media Player. I then convert the DV AVI file to a WMV in Encoder the the resulting file looks poor in terms of color accuracy, color quality and proper saturation. If you have the video panel showing when the encoding is taking place, you can see the difference side-by-side in the encoder on the second pass. The source looks fine and the output looks bad. I have tried different settings, different bitrates and different resolutions, but the color is always off. I have no complaints about the compression quality, at 1Mbit, 500Kbit or 300Kbit, I get what I expected in terms of compression artifacts and overall resolution Any ideas?
  • 2. WMEncoder truncates output file when doing 2-pass with an active plug-in
    I ran into a very strange error with WMEncoder: when using a WMA file as source and doing a 2-pass encoding with a DMO plug-in the resulting output file is truncated (usually to just a few ms, ~15KB) It can be reproduced easily with Windows Media Encoder: * use a WMA file as source * choose New session, Convert a file * distribution: Windows Media server * bit rates: 135,54,37 KB * no need to add metadata before starting to convert go on properties and * choose plug-ins/audio * register - pick Audio echo * select Audio/Echo (from Available plug-ins) and click on ">>" to move it under "Current plug-ins" * on the Compression tab choose "Two-pass" encoding click Apply and Start encoding. Does anybody has any idea why this happens? I'm experiencing the problem while using the WMEncoder SDK (that's how I actually discover it). And unfortunately it affects our production. Any help/hints will be greatly appreciated One more note: it seems to be dependent on the input file. I can provide you with a file that consistently will produce truncated output files when used as an input if you are not able to reproduce it following the above steps Thank you Ovidiu Todoran

  • 4. Creating the Announcement Failed - error 0xC00D0035
    I am trying to setup an announcement for multicast streaming to a WMS. I am able to push to the server from my encoding machine, but when I select TOOLS>CREATE ANNOUNCEMENT and then use the wizard, I always receive the error "Creating the announcement failed. The Specified server could not be found (0xC00D0035). Once the problem is reslved you must create the announcement before encoding. What does this mean? The server I am able to unicast with is the same server I want to multicast. Is there something that has to be done to the server to enable multicast 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.

Thanks
