Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

CANNOT PLAY MED PLAYER AVI ETC FILES ON XBOX - NO VIDEOS FOUND.

I can play mpeg files no problem on xbox media centre. Up to recently I was also able to play other files like avi on xbox (by not going into media centre) just by selecting video library and clicking connection to my pc. Whatever now has happened it now says NO VIDEOS FOUND. I have set up media player library on PC and sharing files carefully many times trying different options and I still get this. The xbox media centre works fine and all files are on the same external drive so you would think there is no hardware problem. The avi files play on media centre no problem on pc but xbox cannot apparently even see them. Xbox Media Centre can see these avi files but obviously will not play them. This is a recent problem.

    So you can see mpeg files (that are on your external HDD) just fine on Xbox Media Center? What happens when you plug your Ext HDD directly into your 360? Can you see the avi and other files you couldnt see before?

Hi there.

I had the same problem. I solved mine by re-downloading the Optional Media Update from xbox live, and everything was fine after that.

Hope that works for you too.

Hi im trying to watch a show on my xbox and it keeps coming up with status code 69-c00d36be???


There are many correct answers to this question. Here's one...

I suggest you use mencoder or ffmpeg. Neither are really well documented, so you need to tinker.

A simpler, more expensive answer is to use TMPG Enc 4.0 Express. I purchased and use it daily.

Xbox has downoladed new update an still cant play .avi files off my hardrive?? error code


Certain files can't be played even if they say they're .avi. And this is considering you have downloaded the "extra update" on the marketplace for media files. Or you can try deleting the update and redownloading it.

My xbox does not want to play avi movies and videos


As I know, Xbox 360 support WMV best and then MP4. I think you should find a video converter to convert your avi video to WMV video or MP4 video. You can try Leawo Video Converter. When you add your video in this software, then select Xbox360 in "Profile".

Video problems


maybe video format is not compatiable with PSP. I heard this video converter converts video files, YouTube videos, movies so you can play them on your PSP. The software can convert all types of video files (avi, divx, xvid, flv, x264, vob, mpeg, YouTube, etc.) into the proper video formats (MPEG-4, H.264) that play on the PSP.

Unable to Play DivX encoded videos through media center extender (xbox360)


The media center does not currently use the codec to decode DiVX... but with all the upcoming changes to the xbox360 interface/ console / Marketplace I see Microsoft correcting this.

Hope this helps!

Xbox 360 modding


You cannot transfer files to the Xbox 360, you can only stream the material eg songs or videos through it. You can put the items you wish to view on a usb memory stick, but again you cannot save them to your XBox 360 only play direct from the device you use to store the videos or music. You will also need XP media centre to use the media extender software, or even better Vista premium, XP home or Pro will not share the material with XBox because it cannot use the extender software.

Movie Formats To Work With Xbox 360


As you may have heard, with the Xbox 360 Flash Fall 2006 System Update they are adding support for WMV video playback from new sources. Videos can be streamed from a PC running Windows Media Connect, Windows Media Player 11, or the new Zune client player, and can also be played from Optical Disc and most USB mass storage devices. For all these sources, only the WMV video file format and codecs are supported. How do I know if a video file will work on the Xbox 360? Currently only the Windows Media Video (WMV) file format and codecs are supported. If you have a file with a ?.wmv? extension, then the odds are pretty good that it will work. Technical details on the types of files we support can be found at the end of this post, but the easiest way to find out if a file will work or not is to just try it. Hopefully after you click play the video will show up on your display, but if the content is not supported you will simply get an ?Unplayable Content? message blade from the side of the screen and then be returned to the Video blade. How do I create videos that will play on my Xbox 360? Windows Movie Maker, a standard feature of Windows XPSP2, will output WMV video files compatible with the Xbox 360 console. Either use the default settings when you finish a movie and click ?Save to my computer,? or just make sure that the output video format you select shows the file type as ?Windows Media Video (WMV).? Videos will usually look best when they are closest to the original resolution that they were created with. Try to create video files at least 360 pixels high in vertical resolution in order to minimize content upscaling on the console. If you decide you want finer control of the output video file format, download a version of Windows Media Encoder (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/) and then start encoding away. Optimal size and bitrate settings will vary depending on the source material you are encoding. As a general guideline though, 1.5 Mbps is a typical bitrate that should be suitable for most standard definition content, and 8 Mbps is a common bitrate for high definition content. Can I get more technical details about the kinds of files you support? WMV video files with the extension ?.wmv? are stored in a generic file container format known as ASF. ASF files can contain many different types of codecs within them. Xbox 360 supports most common WMV video codecs, as seen in the following chart: Supported Video Codecs: Name FourCC Windows Media Video 7 WMV1 Windows Media Video 8 WMV2 Windows Media Video 9 WMV3 Windows Media Video 9 Advanced Profile WVC1 There are some files with ?.wmv? extension that may play on a PC, but are unsupported on the Xbox 360 console. Windows Media Screen, Windows Media 9 Image (Photostory), and some older Microsoft codecs are unsupported, as seen in the following chart: Unsupported Codecs: Name FourCC Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V3 MP43 Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V2 MP42 Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V1 MP41 Windows Media Screen V9 MSS2 Windows Media Screen V7 MSS1 Windows Media Video 9 Image WMVP Windows Media Video 9 Image v2 WVP2 ISO MPEG-4 Video V1 MP4S Anamorphic content with nonsquare pixels is currently unsupported on Xbox 360 console, and will be displayed as if the pixels were square. If you want to play such content on your console, it is recommended that you re-encode the content in a square pixel format.

Information from computer to 360


The only way to watch video files from the computer to the 360 is to stream them, which can only be done if you have Windows Media Center. Even then, the only formats that it would play are DVR-MS, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and WMV. So if you want to watch movies that are in quicktime, divx, avi formats or any other, you would first have to convert them into the supported formats.
