Ok, someone is gonna say I'm an idiot for asking this question, but I'm looking for a way to stream my LiveTV to a wmv file that doesn't take up my entire harddrive. Yes I have plenty of room, but I have to connect to the machine occasionally and stop the capture to wmv and delete the wmv. Unfortunately other scenarios don't work for me...
can't use the push method with windows media encoder because i don't have windows server
can't stream to an IP because the unit (Archos WiFi704) won't allow me to open windows media player and open a URL
isn't there a way that you can either tell it to wipe out the wmv when it hits a certain size and start over? or something similar?
Any creative thoughts? I'll take anything! Thanks!

How To Automate Live Streaming With Windows Media Encoder
This article will explain how to have Windows Media Encoder automatically reconnect (always stay encoding), and also explain how to have Windows Media Encoder automatically start encoding at boot up, for example in case of a power outage.
1. Save your Windows Media Encoder configuration as C:\encoderconfig.wme
2. Download this http://www.fast-serv.com/util/WME.zipand unzip the two files (reconnect.vbs and startencoding.bat) onto your C:\
3. Test the files:
Make sure Windows Media Encoder isn't currently running, and test the startencoding.bat file by double clicking it. You should see Windows Media Encoder start up, and a few seconds later start encoding.
Click "Stop Encoding" in your encoder and wait 10 seconds. You should see your encoder automatically start encoding again.
If the encoder never started encoding and didn't display an error, make sure reconnect.vbs is located on your C:\. You may also try double clicking it manually to test if it works (while the encoder is open).
4. If the test passed, place a shortcut to startencoding.bat in your Startup directory by dragging it to Start -> Programs -> Startup
5. Make sure your computer is set to automatically logon.

For 95/98/ME instructions, http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/125/
Reboot the computer and make sure Windows Media Player starts and begins encoding. You may also want to check your computer's BIOS to make sure the power state will always be "ON" or "LAST" after a power outage. If it is set to "OFF", the most common default, your computer will not reboot in the case of a power outage.
Now you don't have to worry about power outages or network anomalies, knowing that your encoding machine will always be encoding. Enjoy your newly found freedom!
Thanks for this guide. It has been great fun setting up, but I seem to have a problem at the end. When I open up Windows Media Player to recieve the stream, the video stream works fine. The audio either keeps repeating what I say (like in a loop), or cuts out completely. I have tinkered a little bit with the audio settings without success, but I don't really know what I am doing. Has anyone had a similar problem, or any ideas on the areas I should be looking?
The audio device is called RealtekAC97; when the audio cuts out completely, the mixer indicator on the encoder panel fills up with green, yellow and red, as though the input level is too high (I have tried cutting the input level right down)
Here is my situation:
I've successfully broadcast program from my TV tuner thanks for the steps posted in this website.
1. No sound
2. While broadcasting live using the URL given by Windows Media Encoder (http://127.0.0.1:50880/), I tried playing it to my apple computer connected to the internet using Windows Media Player for Mac Windows an error says "host unreachable". And if I use other computer connected to internet using Windows XP an error says "Media Player cannot play the file because a network error occurred. The server might not be available. Verify that you are connected to the network and that your proxy settings are correct." If I use my windows media player on the same computer that the Windows Media encoder is running it is streaming well. and in any computer if I use sopcast copy paste the give URL by the WME it is working well.
Why cant I change the URL given in the Windows Media Encoder? How can I obtain a URL & Port to enter into the WME manually?

If you have enabled a firewall in either the DSL modem or Windows Firewall, I can't help you.
If the only firewall you are using is in the Linksys Wireless router, here's a link on how to set up virtual server (aka port forwarding): http://linksys.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/linksys.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=4758&p...i=&p_topview=1
Pleas help. I cannot make WME to connect successfully to my Hauppauge WinTV PVR PCI II. This is the input/output screen I get. It seems theres a picture underneath all those horizontal lines, because there's movement, and every once in a while I recognize features. I tried using all the different video decodres, and different bitrates, picture changes colors slightly, but horizontal lines are still there. Anyone else with words of wisdom for this problem?

My TV Tuner Card is : WinFast TV2000 XP
My Sound Card is On Board ( C - Media )
I've successfully broadcast program from my TV tuner, client can see the TV show but no sound.
Can anybody help me fix this problem
And Is there some HArdware that compatible with WME9?
well nathan i think here no one is going to help u my friend coz i have posted my problem and still i m wating for asnwer but any ways i also have c- media sound card and i musing wme7 becoz its compatible with all tv tuners and sound card try to use wme7 and when u r runing wizerd chooes ur sound card and if ur tv tuner is using linein of ur soundcard then go to ur sound and click line in and then start broadcasting
I followed the directions and after a spot of finger trouble can stream video from my server to other systems on my networkbut there is no sound. I'm using an Askey TViewer capture card with BT878 chip. My audio options are:
(default audio device)
Multichanel WAV device
none of the options produces sound. Seems this is a common problem.
hirsutusInside every old guy is a young guy wondering what the heck happened.
Solved the problem this evening. I use a Connexant/BrookTree based TV capture card. The card has two related drivers, one for video and one for audio. The BT video capture driver appears as an option when configuring Windows Media Encoder. The BT audio driver does not appear but I can choose the ES mixer (Compaq M/B with "ES" audio hardware). If I use the TV tuner standalone, everything works fine, if I start WME then it starts the video driver and captures the picture and also grabs the output from the audio mixer. Alas and alack, there is nothing to start the BT audio capture driver so the mixer gets no input.
I started WME with the TV capture application running, WME grabs the video and the audio (from the ES mixer) and broadcasts, I can see video and hear audio on client systems.
Sadly, the system creaks a bit playing video in one window and encoding in another. If I can find a way to start the BT audio driver at the same time as the BT video driver.......

i did everything as it said on the setup guide pic for live broadcast..
when i click on start encoding at the end i get this error: Invalid or corrupt data was encountered. (0xC00D002F)
please help me figure out why is that..i have never stream online before i reallly try and learn. so please help..
also i don't hear any audio..
Things appear OK.........but if I want to stream more than one channel, say for example C-span and PBS and visitors to my site will have an option to choose from 2 channels..........how do I do that. Also, If I have satellite television and would like to stream more than one channel.......how would I do that............

I need help on broadcasting using the Windows Media encoder, i tried using direct ip , it worked b4 but once the router is restarted from power failure it will block me on broadcasting it. instead of direct ip, my encoder shows http:// mypcname:8080 instead of htttp://220.127.116.11:8080. Im not familiar using the no-ip to redirect the service, can anyone please teach me. cheers
help me please ´*^_^*` i need your Help -
i already have windows media encoder , my problem is --> URL can not detect !!!
what i do ?? , if my URL will show ?¿ , (i have account DNS , it's online , but i can not understand , why W.M.E can not detect my URL º_º
hello friend , i'm student -math-computers , we can change many information ´*^_^*`
how do I find out correct channel number if i only know mhz?
Hi, your step by step explanation is great. But I got stock where the URL is demanded. I do not know precisely where to get my URL - iTHOUGHT IT SHOULD BE THE link to my webplayer, but aparently it is not. Please hlep. I broadcast on TVU NETWORKS but their tecnical support is so poor. When I follow your explanation and get to the start encoding window, I see that audio is on but video in and out windors are blank and dark. I suppose it's beacuse I don't have the correct URLs. So tell me how to get the URL FOR my TVU broadcast.
I have a new problem that just started.
I have been using WME9 for several years. The last time I tried using it
after clicking the ICON, I get the first screen to pop up quickly then then shutdowns
and that's it. The Program never starts. It's like it starts/stop within a few seconds.
I went into msconfig and set it to run the minimum needed to run Windows
and then WME9 would start and go the the screen to choose what you want
I then returned msconfig to normal settings with WME9 not working again, start/stop quickly.
I manually went into msconfig startup and deselected everything but avast and WME9 still didn't
work, note avast was running on this system when WME9 did work so I don't think it's avast.
In the SERVICES Tab I deselected "Plug and Play" then the program appeared
not to start and stop quickly.
Anyone else every have this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.

hi everyone, Thanks for the explanation... its a good guide... but ive a question, how can i get a better image??? i want to broadcast in a good definition, what i need for that? a good tv capture? a good conection of internet.... im streaming rigth now, but i want a better definition, in the computer it see well, but when i connect to my page ... its not to well... what i have to do? Thanks...
ok, the bitrate of upload right??? well, about that i get a problem because here (in Venezuela) the most high rate is 256kbps or something like this, and in that way i really dont have any chance for stream in a good definition, and if a could do it, i will not have more that 5 or maybe 6 viewers... and i really want like 50 o something...
i didnt try stream with Vlc or using flash... but its not tha samething? i mean, i really dont know so much about it but if you give me a Faq ill give you thanks....
I was trying stream by Justintv but i really dont get the defenition what i want... i was thinking if my problem is the captureboard or VideoCapture (i really dont know how can i say in english) ( i have one really cheap) but i dont want to loose money paying for something that is dont gonna work for me... Im really confused...?
My dilema is... more defenition: VideoCapture (like this one: http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/sp/Products/Consumer+Products/Home+Video/Studio+...Collection.htm)
or is the bit rate??? Thxns Baldrick for you help...
I had this streaming perfectly a while back then stopped using it after a while. Recently fired it up again and can only see it on another computer on my home network. I have a dyndns account, I have tried re-installing WME9, I opened a port on my router, I have tried using another computer outside the network, I am stumped! Completely frustrated here. Any input most appreciated!
