    MPEG 2 activation failed

    I tried to disable windows firewall, as suggested, but with no result. Another, nvidia activearmor firewall is active and i don't know how to disable it. The strange is that exporting mpeg2 files with other applications i don't receive these type of protection error. In the past this occoured me when i created DIVx files, same protection error, but with mpeg2 files it's the first time.... When i didn't have Creator 2010 but only EMC 9 suite, i didn't receive this error. Something has to be happened in my machine.

    MPEG 2 activation failed

    It's ok I updated to the EMC 9.1 and now the mpeg2 codecs have been enabled again in automatic, i can use MyDVD and videowave exporting a mpeg2 file, but.... I tried to export a little mpeg2 file with videowave and it was encoded properly. Anyway, opening the window where the file was placed the system gave me a protection error, telling me the resource explorer has been closed due to the computer protection. Opening that file with media player, another error telling that the additional plugins was disabled always to guarantee the protection. Effectively it was the same cause using Roxio Creator 10. I converted an HD video file in mpeg2, it was converted without problems, but when i played it with mediaplayer, after a while that i was seeing the video, i received the protection error, and since this time i was unable to play mpeg2 files with Windows media player 11. Now i have the problem that when i open the window in C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Documenti\Video where videovawe places my exported files, the window is closed. So i guess i have to modify the protection settings of my Windows XP professional SP3, but i don't know which is the proper value to change inside Windows Firewall.

    MPEG 2 activation failed

    I don't think i have the update to 9.1 It think to remember that before to uninstall and reinstall it the program was updated but i am not sure, i have to check. Usually i disable some applications at start, to make the pc faster and so that it doesn't conflict with my acquire video card drivers, a little sensibles with some others applications. Matrox advises to disable in msconfig all that is not so necessary. So sometimes i am not advised by the programs if updated are available. I will check if i have somewhere the update pack. If i don't have it is there some way to get this update? I would be happy to try if it works in this way for sure. Thank so much!

    MPEG 2 activation failed

    Yes, the problem is that the windows relative to the offline activation doesn't come out, even turning off the modem, as i wrote in the first post. So, if the automatic procedure doesn't work, if the manual procedure can't be done, for that i have understood the only thing remained is to reinstall EMC9 with a clean procedure, hoping that then the automatic procedure works. Is it so or is there another way to access to the offline activation to receive the 25 digit code?

    MPEG 2 activation failed

    Good solution Since i bought Roxio Creator 2010, for the moment i won't try to make another clean uninstall/reinstall because i don't want to have problems with my system registry, anyway i think that in these cases it should be easy to reactivate a product. Not all the users are so experts to make these kind of operations, even if guided.

    Drag to Disk or Roxio Burn?

    Hi, i have recently purchased Roxio Creator 2010, and i have also Easy Media Creator 9. I was wondering how my disks burned with drag to disk and not still finalized will be threated. In other words, could i use old drag to disk CD or DVD with Roxio Burn, or have i to continue to use these disks with drag to disk to add new files? To be sincere i haven't understood how Roxio burn works. With drag to disk, ejecting the disk it asks if you want to keep the CD open or ready to be read in other pc (finalizing the disk), but with Roxio Burn i haven't this option, so i have this doubt, i would avoid to damage the disks. Thank so much.

    Creator 2010 and windows media player 11

    Well, being a video producer, i use several programs for this, not only one, according to the final result i want to obtain. Roxio is a software that i used since i started with this work. For instance i use often videowave to make slideshows with photos and MyDVD for the DVD. For other videos i use software DVD authoring that uses my mpeg2 files without to re-encode them or that have other features. To play videos i have always used windows media player, also because it's directshow enabled. This is the main reason. I purchased ROXIO 2010 also because it can convert HD videos, a feature that i didn't have in other programs. Maybe, if i install again my acquire video card, the plugins are placed again into the windows media player, but i wanted to avoid this. You know that when you find a good stability in the OS, uninstalling and reinstalling these type of hardware is dangerous. For this reason i asked your help, i am sure that all worked fine with windows media player before to install Creator 2010. I have the same issue with the files .avi that my acquire video card produces when i acquire a video. In windows media player i can't watch them anymore. I only desire to understand because maybe this installation caused this problem. This doesn't mean that i am not happy to have purchased Roxio 2010. For me it's a very good program. I will try anyway also the VLC player you suggested.

    Creator 2010 and windows media player 11

    Yes, i try to explain myself better. Since i have installed Windows media player 11, i have always been to play a DVD with this, and also now, after having installed ROXIO Creator 2010. What instead i am not able to play anymore is a video file mpeg2, in other words a file ready to create a DVD. I export these type of files from Adobe Premiere, using a realtime mpeg2 export using my Matrox RTX 100 videocard, or using Ligos encoder. Well, before to install ROXIO 2010, i was able to play these type of files with windows media player, viewing the video in the windows media player window and also on my tv, using directshow provided with my acquire card. Now, playing an mpeg2 file, in the windows of the media player i don't see anything, instead the video is trasmitted properly on my tv. It seems that ROXIO 2010 installation overwrites the mpeg2 codec of the mediaplayer 11, because using for instance another type of player, such Creative mediasource, i watch correctly the video. So the problem is that my windows media player 11 can't play anymore mpeg2 files, instead it's still able to play vob files used in the DVD.
  10. Hi everyone, after have installed ROXIO Creator 2010 my windows media player 11 is now unable to play mpeg2 files. I can still read DVD anyway with this. I read that it's possible to buy a plugin for windows media player that enables to play mpeg2 files.... what is this? Before to install Roxio 2010, my windows media player worked properly with these type of files. How can i fix this problem (preferable without to buy the plug in.... but working as before) Thank so much My operating systhem is Windows XP professional.

    MPEG 2 activation failed

    Hi everybody, i have read all the posts about this argument but the procedure it's not clear to me. Some time ago i changed my video card and then all worked correctly. At a certain moment (i have EMC 9 suite) videovawe and my DVD didn't work anymore, telling me that i had to upgrade my videocard because it didn't satisfy the minimum requirements (i installed the ATI 4870 x 2, so this message is very strange). So i updated the driver of the videocard, but i received the same error. I unistalled EMC 9 and i reinstalled it. Opening videowave i received a request to activate the mpeg2 codec. The auto procedure didn't work. So i turned off my modem, following the instruction of the manual activation procedure. The problem is that the window of the offline activation doesn't come out, so i am unable to receive the 25 digit code shown in orange. What have i to do? Thanks for your support

    burning speed

    Hi everybody, i posted previously a problem that i have with EMC 9, because it seems that it allows to me to burn my DVD at a maximum speed of 4x when my recorder can burn at 16x (Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-108) and i have to say that with other applications, such as adobe encore DVD 1.5 or Nero 6, i can burn at those speeds. The media i use report correctly the 1-16x capability, and i used verbatim, TDK, and Fuji. In a previous article someone told me that the firmware of my recorder is not updated, anyway i have 2 computers, with different recorders, and the problem is the same. With Roxio i can't burn a DVD at a speed faster than 4x. And it's not a problem of PC power too, i use my computers for the video editing and they have both a dual core processor (AMD Athlon X2 4200+ and Intel 3,4 GHz), and so they are enough powerful to write at 16x. So, anyone encountered this problem? I am grateful to everybody can help me. I like EMC 9, it's a great program, anyway for me, this is a limit if i can't solve it.

    burning speed

    I suspected a thing like this.... yes, probably you are right, i put my media into the drive (it's a FujiFilm DVD-R up to 16x) and using the EMC 9 application the result is that one: Media Information Region information N/A not a DVD-VIDEO Media code/Manufacturer ID MBI 03RG40 Format Capacity Blank Disc Free Blocks 411107328 Free Capacity 4.38GB(4.71GB) Book Type DVD-R Media Type DVD-R Manufacturer Rated Speed Unknown Available Write Descriptor CLV 4.0x 5540KBps Write Strategy Speed 4.0x 5540KBps 2x Speed OPC beta 09 2x Speed OPC power 0F 2x Write Strategy field 1 15 87 88 90 2x Write Strategy field 2 A8 82 00 20 00 00 4x Speed OPC beta 06 4x Speed OPC power 16 4x Write Strategy field 1 10 14 0F 0B 4x Write Strategy field 2 94 07 0D 0B 4x Write Strategy field 3 80 00 00 00 4x Speed OPC beta multi-pulse 09 4x Speed OPC power multi-pulse 1E 4x Write Strategy field 4 17 A7 89 85 4x Write Strategy field 5 B7 89 02 00 20 02 4x Write Strategy field 6 00 00 D0 00 00 Data area starting sector 30000h Linear Density 0.267um/bit Track Density 0.74um/track Number of Layers 1 Complete Media Code 00000000 00 6C 00 00 01 40 C1 FD 9E D8 52 00 02 87 0D 13 .l...@....R..... 00000010 87 88 90 00 03 4D 42 49 20 30 33 00 04 52 47 34 .....MBI 03..RG4 00000020 30 00 00 00 05 88 80 00 00 00 02 00 06 09 0F 15 0............... So the problem seems to be as Roxio interprets the media, right? Anyway i don't believe to be capable to update the firmware of my recorder, i have no idea how to do it.... Could you give me some tips? Thank you everybody Thanks for your support CD Anteek, i mean what you are saying, that if the media is declared to 16x but it's not really capable to burn affordably at this speed, it's better to burn at a lower.... Anyway i notice this... i have two computers, the other has a different recorder, newer, it's a lightscribe capable, and the problem is the same.... so i really think that it depends on the way Roxio interpret the media features.

    burning speed

    Thank you for your reply, i think my firmware is updated. This is not the problem, because as i repeat, with other programs, such as adobe encore DVD 1.5, i am naturally capable to burn DVD using the 16x speed. This signifies that's not a firmware problem, if not i couldn't use this speed with other programs. I think, otherwise, that's a Roxio problem, because it seems that with my recorder it doesn't allow a speed faster than 4x. Using Nero burning Rom, for instance, i can use faster speeds. So, how can i solve the problem?

    burning speed

    Hi, i encountered a strange thing with Creator 9, in other words, when i burn a DVD-R or DVD+R the maximum speed allowed is 4x, when my recorder and the virgin disk that i use support speeds until 16x. It's strange because using other programs, i can burn with a speed of 8x or 16x. Is it a My DVD or Disk copy limit or what else? Any suggestions are higly appreciated!
