  • 1. More port questions
    More ports Ok - have two encoders running to one server. I tried using this- note the IP is fake for personal protection. Encoder 1 settings - using push Servername pp = test Encoder 2 settings - using push Servername pp = test1 Acording to a previous post I will need to give each encoder a different port but when i try to assign a different port other than 80 I get the error. Unable to connect to the server Ensure windows media services is started and the http server control protocal is enabeled. Port Example Encoder 1 settings - using push Servername pp = test I assume i get this error since http is bound to 80. I was also informed that the encoders could not run on the same port. I would assume this is true is you are encoding from one machine. But on two different machines I am using port 80 with no problems. How do you assign a 2nd port using push on one machine. Would I have problem if I assign 50 encoders to port 80 using push Servername Thank you for your time Mike
  • 2. WME9 can't find driver for USB microphone
    I have a USB microphone that uses the standard Windows USB Audio drivers. This microphone has been working correctly. It tests fine in the sound control panel and works in apps like Sound Recorder. When trying to select the USB microphone in WME9, however, I get an error: No specified device driver is present (0xC00D0072) I've looked around the net quite a bit to find a solution and have come up empty. It seems that there have been some driver issues in the past, but back in the days of DirectX Media and WME 7. I'm running XP SP2 with DirectX 9.0c. I reinstalled DirectX and uninstalled and reinstalled the USB Audio drivers, but with no luck. Any advice on helping WME9 find the USB Audio driver?
  • 3. Video freezes, Audio goes on
    Hi there. We have tricky problem while encoding to a live-video and audio stream and simultaneous archivating. It happens, that the video in the live-stream freezes but audio goes on. This is for sure no client-problem, like bad connection or something, because the archivated file verifies that. We can see exactly the same (video freeze, audio goes on) when playing it afterwards with media player. I've already got in contact with microsoft support and viewcast, which is the capture-card-manufacturer (Osprey 440). Support told me there is a problem with the card hardware/driver (highly probable). This card is very new, and you can't even find it on the Viewcast Website. Does anyone have the same problem? Could a reinstallation of Windows 2003 Server and/or the card's drivers help? Is the Win 2003 service pack necessary to be installed?
  • 4. Captioning source for encoder
    I've been able to create an application that can encode a video with realtime caption text. But I have a couple of questions: 1) Encoded text (captions) simply replace the current caption text in the player. Is there something in the encoder or player that would allow text to wrap and scroll? 2) Is there a way for the encoder on computer X to accept script data from computer Y (i.e. specific IP address)? (My apologies if this turns up as a duplicate post; My initial attempt apparently never posted.)
  • 5. VOB file converts fine but no Audio
    I burned a project to DVD using Pinnacle 9 Studio Plus. I want to convert that DVD to .wmv. So, I drug the VOB file to my computer from the DVD. Then I used WME 9 to convert the VOB file to .wmv. It worked fine for the video, but there is no audio in the .wmv file when I play it back. Where did I go wrong?

Error: the Input Media Format is Invalid

Postby looknow12 » Fri, 21 May 2004 03:09:10 GMT

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

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
