In Microsoft Windows Media Encoder 9 Series, if you select interlaced processing together with the option to preserve the original time code or the option to create the time code, you may receive the following error message when you start the Encoder:
0xC00D002F: Invalid or corrupt data was encountered (NS_E_INVALID_DATA)
When you select either the Preserve Original time code option or the Create time code option, the Encoder resets the Allow interlaced processing option. However, the codec is still expecting interlaced data. Therefore, the codec will generate the error message when it receives the unexpected samples.
