SYMPTOMS

You have a multiple bit rate (MBR) file or a live stream that contains more than 32 media streams. You try to play the MBR file or the live stream in Windows Media Player on a computer that is running Windows XP or Windows Vista. However, Windows Media Player cannot play the MBR file or the live stream. Additionally, you receive an error that has error code C00D11B1.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because a variable that defines the average bit rate for each media stream is hard-coded to 32. The variable is in an Advanced Systems Format (ASF) header object. When the number of supported media streams exceeds 32 in a file or in a live stream, the Load function closes the connection to the media streams.
