  • 1. WME 64 bit. I dont need Xp 64 bit for this do i ??
    Or do i. UMMMM. Just want oen that will work with dual core CPu. Not sure if the 32bit version takes advantage of this or not ? I suppose a 64bit OS and CPu would be best for speed. So i think ill dual boot 32 and 64 bit OS. Thanks for any info.

  • 3. Trying to indexing a file
    Due to an unknown reason (I am completely sure that I did select the index file box when setting the encoding parameters), the encoded file is not indexed and I cannot use it in other applications such as Movie Maker or Producer. I have tried to re-index the file using Windows Media File Editor but I get the message "Failed to save file". Then I tried to re-encode the original file, but the Encoder fails due to "currupted data" just in the middle of the 40min-long video. Is there any way to recover the file? Thank you and Happy New Year to all of you Jesus
  • 4. screen capture sometimes creates broken movies
    Im using WME SDK to process a queue of movies played on the screen and capture them to WMV. In a session I might create 35 movies, 2-7 minutes in length. Out of those I can count on a few of them being broken, always in the same way, with the front chopped off at some point. Since Im processing in serial I thought perhaps there was something I am doing wrong with the SDK in terms of flushing a bufffer, etc... but the intermittent nature of the error is confusing, as is the almost complete lack of predictability as to which movies will break. In one case where a single movie broke repeatedly it always chopped off the intro and started in the same exact place mid-movie. This was a large movie and when I split its content into 2 movies it worked. Other times a small movie is being chopped off to the middle. strange business, any clues appreciated - or should I be posting in another spot? TIA, John

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.




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!!!!!
