I am setting up mencoder on CentOS and I have the following error:

[flv @ 0x86751c8]Unsupported video codec (7) IMediaObject ERROR: 0x8724f4c input format not accepted (0x80040205 : -2147220987) Win32 LoadLibrary failed to load: wmavds32.ax, /usr/local/lib/codecs/wmavds32.ax, /usr/lib/win32/wmavds32.ax, /usr/local/lib/win32/wmavds32.ax Warning: DS_Filter() could not open DirectShow DLL. (DLL=wmavds32.ax)

I am going through codecs on http://www3.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/releases/codecs/ and none seem to contain wmavds32.ax

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks!

Codecs are available on http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html underneath the Binary Codec Packages section. It contains wmavds32.ax per http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/codecs-status.html

Thanks for your reply. I downloaded several codec packages from that page and none of them contained wmavds32.ax It appears that Windows Media Audio 9 Speech DShow is missing. –  Alex L Jul 3 '09 at 21:25
    
Have you tried installing the Win32codecs-essential pack for your architecture? It should contain the files which are needed. You could also try downloading the source for the w32codec-all and extract it to /usr/lib/win32, after that create symlinks to it in /usr/lib/codecs and /usr/local/codecs. –  Jeremy Viet Jul 3 '09 at 22:36
    
Yes, I have tried it but they do not contain wmavds32.ax. I tired win32codecs-20040703.tar.bz2.tar win32codecs-essential-20040703.tar.bz2.tar windows-all-20071007.zip all-20071007.tar.bz2.tar essential-20071007.tar.bz2.tar None of the packages have wmavds32.ax How could mplayer say that that codec is supported but not have it in the packages? –  Alex L Jul 4 '09 at 15:00

I updated mencoder to the latest version (via SVN) and do not receive this error. Duh..
