Strange Windows Media Problem

Hello
Im trying to encode an mpeg2-file (m2v) and an AC3-file to a wmv-file. Ive done this a few hundred times before without running in to this problem but now all of a sudden its occured on two files.

I get this error when trying to open the file:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...nalid=80004005

Since I don't have any problem playing other files encoded the exact same way I don't think the problem is with my sound card.

If I encode the ac3 to wma I can play the wma without a problem. If I encode the mpeg2 to wmv I can play the wmv without a problem. But as soon as I mux them together (with windows media stream editor) I get the error explained above.

At first I thought the problem had to do with the audio and video differing in duration. So I cut the wma at the end so that theyd be the exact same length. This however did not make any difference; i still get the same error when trying to play the muxed file.

I tried opening them in asfbin but it tells me the streams are imcompatible. I have no clue how to make them compatible, all my ideas have dried out.

Could someone please suggest a solution for this?

Hi!

Try running the .AC3 file through "AC3Fix", before converting to WMA.

You're not still working on "Death at a Funeral", are you?

I had all ready tried AC3Fix and it didnt find a single bad frame in any of the AC3-files.

I did however relalize I hadnt installed the latest AC3filter yesterday and after installing it and running the two movies once more they seem good and fine.

As for Death at a Funeral your advice was good. I ran the DVD through our companies disc polisher and the disc must have had a few scratches because after ripping it again it it ran smoothly.

So big thanks to you again
