WMA error: (IWMSyncReader::GetNextSample failed : Unknown error code (

I created a WMA (or ASF if you like) by playing with VLC's streaming settings. Got said error:

Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (IWMSyncReader::GetNextSample failed : Unknown error code (0xC00D002F)):
[filename]


Google didn't help much about this thing:

Is it a foobar2000 issue at all? (ffmpeg happily reencapsulates it seems.)

the only streaming profiles for asf/wma i see in vlc are for video?? perhaps this is why foobar doesn't like it??

perhaps you could detail what you're trying to do and what end result you expect? 

as for those other threads, if your intention was to simply rip some CDs or convert some audio files to WMA then you'd be better off just using this...

I tried to stream a .wma. VLC of course prefers containers that can hold both audio and video, but VLC confirmed that the .asf contains a WMA stream and no video stream.

I then used ffmpeg -acodec copy -vn -sn to re-encuapsulate the stream into .wma (and also .wmv and .mkv and out of curiosity .mov and .wav, which shouldn't work I think)

fb2k identifies the following properties for the .wma and .wmv

Duration : 3:15.071 (9 363 408 samples)
Sample rate : 48000 Hz
Channels : 2
Bitrate : 128 kbps
Codec : WMA
Codec profile : WMA V2
Encoding : lossy

but returns the error code
Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (IWMSyncReader::GetNextSample failed : Unknown error code (0xC00D002F)):


For the .mkv, fb2k only identifies the duration (in milliseconds), and a bitrate of 129; here the error is in fact  Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported audio track format):. Trying the .wav container yields a different error (namely, Unable to open item for playback (Missing ACM codec):.

Pressing play and get music out!

As in encode to WMA? *reaching for garlic and whatever could qualify as holy water*
