  • 2. Capture from security camera?
    What kind of camera could I use if I wanted to mount a camera outdoors and encode the vide / audio stream with Windows Meda? My main problem is the limits of the length of firewire cables, since the cables would need to be run from the camera location to a computer. Are there any cameras with Cat 5e connection which could be used with Windows Media Encoder? Olav
  • 3. XP Record/Playback Volume Low
    I am using Encoder 9 on a Windows XP laptop to capture audio. When recording, I have increased my mic level to the MAX and find that my voice volume hits the peak levels during record. However, when I play the file back when the session is over, I can barely hear my recording during playback. My volume is turned all the way up on my computer and I still can barely hear myself. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? Anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Thanks for the quick response as I have an event to record over the weekend. Best, Doug
  • 4. Installng Windows Media Encoder 9.0
    March Hare Thanks for the advice. I did as you said, downloaded & ran adaware & registry mechanic (supposedly fixing numerous problems, although I can't see any difference in performance), then downloaded WMEncoder from MS's download site, and tried again. Got same result, Error 2753. Now I can not remove the partial installation, or install a complete version. Any more ideas Regards Bubba ----- The March Hare (MVP) wrote: ---- "BubbaZ" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in messag news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM .. > Just installed a new ATI TV tuner card for a P4 2.0GHz, 60G Hard Drive 512 Mb Memory running Windows XP.

What can I do to fix problem and install M Media Encoder 9.0 Sounds like you have a corrupted registry or installer. I recommend you g to and load Lavasoft's AdAware (free personal version) an Registry Mechanic. After running them until your system is clean, tr re-installing

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 
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!!!!!
