[1h13m07s] An unexpected error occured with the audio codec. (0xC00D0BC3)
~ the computer was not used at that time.
~ Windows 2003-SP1, all updates applied.
~ Graph edit shows that I am using the MPEG Layer-3 Audio Decoder, version
1.5 build 50 (transform filter for Microsoft DirectShow...1998)
~ I tried an audio only encodding of the same AVI and it failed in the same
manner, but this time at possition [0h13m49s].
~ The error did not occur near to a junction in the file.
I wonder why it failed on the second pass?
Can I expect a new version of WM Encoder soon? I'm starting to hate this one
~ It usualy stops the file encodding when another process uses the CPU for a
few seconds (I wonder why is this stupid behaviour).
~ Now it left me after about 16 hours of encodding.
