Most likely there is not a codec available. If your Xbox is connected to the internet it will download the codecs if it can when you try to play the file. If not you can do what I did and download TVersity at www.tversity.com. This will stream movies from your computer to your laptop if they are on the same network, I use it to watch movies I have on my computer on my tv via my xbox. Anything your computer can play your xbox can play.

First check sound settings on control panel, ensure volume is not at minimum and computer audio is not muted. Test playing a CD.

this is usually due to Media Player or whatever player you use on your pc, not having the right codecs to decompress sound from camera file.

Usually you sort it out upgrading media player, you can download update from links below.


  1. Windows Media Player 10
  2. Cumulative update for Windows Media Player 11 in Windows Vista

I have quicktime player and I can't see the movie (I can only hear the sound) that has vlc mov codec and saved in quicktime program


I strongly recommend using VLC for watching any type of video. Programs like Quicktime player, windows media player etc often need codecs to play certain video types and formats like avi, flv etc. As for quicktime player, you propably need to download the proper codec for your movie format type

Media players cant play my .avi movies. i copied a .avi movie from my friend's pc using a flash drive and moved it into my personal pc but my media players wont play it. it did not say it was a missing...


I assume you are using the Windows Media Player to play the .avi formats on your OS Windows PC?

If this is the case, you do not have the necessary "codecs" to play the .avi files. Download & install the latest codec package ie K-Lite Mega Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack @ http://www.free-codecs.com/download/K_Lite_Mega_Codec_Pack.htm

Hope it helps.

Download and install K-lite. It is a "pack" of all popular codecs. After you install it, your media software will load with the appropriate codec the next time you watch a movie. Enjoy.

Your Vista Windows Media Player is probably missing the right codec to play this type of movie.
A good and stable Vista Codecpack you can download from: http://shark007.net/vistacodecpackage.html

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.
