Keep video files with 5.1 surround sound for Xbox 360

Have you purchased a 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker system for the Xbox 360 to enjoy your games and movies in the center of action? Currently I have considered doing it. I have loads of HD videos, which are with the extensions of .mkv, .m2ts and whatever. Most of them have embedded 5.1 channels, but the thing is that because of format issues, my console is unable to directly play these files, so I have to do format conversion before watching them. In regard to conversion, my only requirement is keeping 5.1 channels of the source file, fortunately, with Pavtube Video Converter, I did it! Very excited! Share it here.

What you will need is only Pavtube Video Converter. You can free download it here. The detailed steps are as below:

1. Click "Add" button to load video files into this program

2. Click the pull down menu of "Format" to select output format for Xbox 360
Follow "Zune/Xbox 360 Device" – "Xbox 360 HD Video (*. Wmv)". By the way, if you wanna combine multiple files into a single file so that there are no intervals while playing, you can tick the checkbox "Merge into one file" to achieve it.

3. Click "Settings" button to do advanced settings and select 5.1 channels
All the items including codec, bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, sample rate and audio channels are changeable. Do remember adjust the audio as 5.1 channels. Following are my settings, which result a good playback quality on my Xbox 360 console.

4. Click "Convert" button to start conversion
Once finished, you can get the output files for your console via clicking "Open" button effortlessly.

More features of this Xbox 360 Converter I have found:
1. The converting speed of this software is 1-2 times faster than the similar converters. Batch conversion can be done in a few minutes.
2. It does not have the audio and video out of sync issues.
3. With exception of adding text as watermark, images, GIF animations, and videos can also be added as watermarks to realize the picture-in-picture effect.
4. You can use the "Trim" function to select certain video clips to convert. And you can also take advantage of the "Crop" function to remove black edges or change the screen size.
5. Special effect models are provided, such as "Simple gauss blur", "Simple laplacian sharpen", "Aged film", "Flip color", and "Invert".

We hooked it up and have no sound


From the Console Settings screen in the System area of the Xbox Dashboard, you can configure the video output of your Xbox 360 console for a widescreen, high-definition TV, determine your audio options, and check your console's serial number and Xbox Dashboard version.
Go to correct section for ... Audio

Change your audio output settings for games from this screen. These audio settings do not affect DVD movie playback. For DVD audio settings, refer to an individual DVD movie's setup screen.

Settings consist of:

  • Analog Output Settings: choose Mono to merge the left and right audio signals so that you can hear all sound through a connection to a monaural TV or monitor; choose Dolby Pro Logic II to listen in normal stereo (no audio surround receiver required) or to listen to Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II soundtracks from compatible games or other media.

    Dolby Pro Logic consists of four channels of audio: front left/center/right and a monaural surround channel that is mirrored in each of your rear left/right speakers. Dolby Pro Logic II uses digital signal processing to generate 5.0 audio (front left/center/right, rear left/right) from any stereo (left/right) programming, whether from movies, music, or games. Unlike movies and music, however, games are specially encoded with Dolby Pro Logic II decoding in mind.

    To listen in either Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound, you must connect your cable's left/right (white/red) RCA connectors to a compatible surround receiver. For more information, see our connection page for the cable you're using:
  • Digital Output Settings: configure this setting only if you'll be using the Toslink optical digital-audio output from a compatible Xbox 360 AV cable (optical digital-audio cable sold separately):


    The default digital-audio setting is Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is your preference, you do not have to make a selection from this screen.

Is there any way to run an Xbox 360 through it to


if you hook up a fiber optic cable from your main dvd component thingy straight to your tv, then all sound from tv will come out the left and right front speaker and sub woofer. only downside is your center and rear speakers wont be in use, but its better than nothing. your tv of course has to have an input for the fiber optic cable.
