  • 1. Watermark after encode
    Is there anyway to apply a watermark to an already encoded .WMV?
  • 2. Audio
    Hi all, The other day I did a screen capture and I am sure when I set the audio to default audio device, it was whatever sound was being played through my speakers. However, this is not the case anymore. How can I make it so it picks up the sound from what is being played through the speakers? Thank you.
  • 3. Problem Recording Streaming Audio on Asus P5GD2
    I recently assembled a new PC that uses an Asus P5GD2 motherboard. This board has built-in C-Media CMI9880 audio. I want to use Windows Media Encoder to create *.wma files from Windows Media Player and Real Audio Player streaming audio so I can listen to the broadcasts offline on a WMP/MP3 player. The new system plays audio without problem but I can't get Windows Media Encoder to record streaming audio. I had no problems doing this on my previous system (Soyo SY-P4S Dragon Ultra motherboard with built-in C-Media CMI8738 audio). To record streaming audio using the Soyo system I had to enable the Wave audio source in the C-Media mixer application. The P5GD2 mixer app shows only Mic, CD, and Line In as recording sources. There is no source equivalent to the Wave option on the Soyo PC. I installed the latest C-Media driver and app from the Asus website (version dated 2004-08-23) but the problem remains. Any suggestions on what I need to do to enable encoding streaming audio? Thanks. No email replies.

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

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
