  • 1. Live Encoder Broadcast - Using same audio for two video sources?
    Hello! I am trying to set up for a live broadcast over WME - I have just two sources; the camera connected via firewire, and a PowerPoint presentation. I need to be able to give live voiceover for the PowerPoint slides, and I would like to use the camera audio as the audio for the PowerPoint source. I am having trouble doing this; as the Encoder seems to be telling me it can't use the same audio across two video sources. Am I just doing something wrong, or is it possible to use the camera audio from my first video source as the audio for my second source? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you, Kevin

  • 3. Using Media Encoder to stream live Game play?
    Hi, I was wondering if it was possible to stream live game play and minimizing the load on the system playing the game. Currently I'm running the Encoder on the gaming machine and publishing the output to a Media server. Obviously, the encoding is very CPU intensive which has a large affect on the performance of the game. Is it possible to offload the encoding to another system before publishing to the media server? Ideally, some sort of client on the gaming machine that does pure capture and streams to an encoding machine with publishes to the media server. Thanks!
  • 4. Force 'video filter' setting to PAL. Capture card problem?
    Hello, im new to this forum, I hope i'm posting in the right place! I also hope you can help me. I am trying to use Windows Media Encoder to setup a stream, but I am unable to get the video capture card to stay on the PAL setting, as it always reverts back to NTSC, I have tried putting it on PAL as the default setting in 'Tools, Options, General, Default video format' and also on the actual configuration of the device I have installed, but every time I change it from NTSC to PAL and press apply, it goes back to NTSC. Is there anything I can do, or is it a problem with the capture card? Many thanks in advance for your help.
  • 5. No audio from DVD rips using WMEncoder64.exe on Vista
    I am attempting to convert some content from DVD into WMV using the recently released WMEncoder64.exe on Vista Ultimate. It seems I can properly transcode non-DVD MPEG2 files without a problem, but every time I attempt to transcode a DVD-ripped MPEG2 file, no audio is read from the file (green audio bars during pass #1 show nothing), and no audio is written to the WMV. The input files all playback fine in WMP. Also, I can use the exact same settings successfully on WME 32-bit, albeit much more slowly. Has anyone experienced this and/or found a work-around? -- 2007 Kurt Swanson AB

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

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.
