  • 1. watermark (or logo) in 7.1
    Hi! Is there a way to add a watermark (a small logo) to my video during its conversion from .mpg to .wmv, using Windows MEdia Encoder 7.1? As far as I know, its possible using a paid plug-in, using WMEncoder 9. Id like a free one, for 7.1. Anybody knows? Thank you very much! LZ
  • 2. WM Encoder from within COM+
    Hello there Can anybody help? Im trying to automate a a video conversion (.mpg -> .wmv) using Windows Media Encoder automation from within an (vb6) COM+ component. The process starts ok, but it sort of freezes, near the end (about 90%). The cpu remains in 100% usage all the time, even after it "stucks". The process NEVER ends. In a loop, Im checking the .RunState of the Encoder and it says me "Im still converting!". The exact same code works fine if the dll is not running under COM+. Have anybody faced the same problem? Can anybody suggest something Thanks a lot in advance LZ
  • 3. MBR file with different screen resolutions
    Hi, simple question: With Media Encoder 9 and Media Service 9 it is possible to encode an MBR file with videos in different screen resolutions. Can anyone tell me how the player (WMP 9) handles such streams? Example: I encode one stream with the following bitrates: - one audio stream - video stream 950 Kbps, 640 x 480 - video stream 750 Kbps, 400 x 300 The player starts streaming this stream with 950 Kbps. Now the network throughput drops and the player switches to the 750 Kbps stream. What will happen with the video? Is the resolution still 640x480 or will it resize to 400x300? Thanks, Pascal

  • 5. Intelligent streaming - why nobody uses
    If intelligent streaming (i.e. MBR streams) works so well why do I still always see web sites offering separate bit rates (e.g. they have you choose 56k or 100k or 300k). Even the Microsoft sponsored sites. Why not just have one link that picks an MBR stream and let the server and player determine the correct bit rate? Is there something about intelligent streaming and MBR that doesn't work as well as having the user select a specific bit rate?

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

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
