  • 1. Problems with encoding with media encoder 9
    I have a Dual Core 3.4gb Intel Processor with 1gb of DDR Ram and a Ati X700 pro 256mb graphics card using the latest drivers, but whenever I attempt to encode anything into WMV format using Media Encoder 9 I get random green flashes in the video file. I have checked the Microsoft KB's and have removed all graphics acceleration, completed dxdiag tests and done driver updates, but this is still happening! I have also tried transcoding to a portable media centre using the Beta of media player 11, and that does the same. Does anyone have any Ides what I can do to remedy this? Thanks
  • 2. WME 9 not seeing URL
    When I try to set up broadcast for a life event with the pull from encoder option the window for the URL for internet connections show (Could not detect) I have tried to assign a manual IP as well as automatically nothing works. Any comments? The encoding is fine but without the URL I can not broadcast, except of course on the same network to players but not on the internet.
  • 3. Streaming configuration
    Hi! I am installing a win2003 with media encoder with a Geovision card. I have this to stream a live show with 4 cams via a 2Mbit ADSL. Evidently this is totally insuficient for a big number of users seeing this on real time. So i would like to hire a server on a big ISP so i can stream from my local server with WME to the ISP installed server, this way i only stream 1 time to the ISP server, and the ISP re-stream to as many users as needed cause they have a big bandwidth available. Any one can gimme some advice on how to install this on the ISP server, is there any kind of proxy to do this, or i have to use another WME on the ISP, how can i accomplish this ? Thanks and excuse me for my english. Best regards.

  • 5. Saving to File
    For budgeting reasons, I want to broadcast a lower bit rate. However, I'd like to maintain a highrez copy of the show. How do I push one bitrate to my mms, but store the file in a higher bitrate?

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 ;-)

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!!!!!
