Using usb stick


First you will have either copy and pate the movie or download it to your usb drive

One of the benefits of putting files on a USB flash drive is that you can make any type of file portable.


This includes not only documents, spreadsheets and photos, but also media like video clips and movies.


If you have movies saved on your flash drive that you want to view, watching the movies directly from the USB drive is a simple process and can be achieved on almost any computer.


Connect your USB drive to the device on which you want to watch your movies.

This includes all USB-compatible computers, as well as some select television-compatible devices (like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Sony Media Extender).


Launch the file explorer application on your device.

In Windows, access this utility by accessing the "Computer" application and then double-clicking the USB drive to display the files.


If you are trying to watch the movie files on a compatible television device, look for a "media," "device" or "USB input" application or button to bring up the file explorer.


Select the movie file you want to play.

In Windows, do this by double-clicking on the file.


The appropriate media-handling program should automatically launch and begin playing the movie automatically.


If you are using a television device, select the file from the list of compatible files in the device's internal explorer system.


hope this helps

I cant open my movies


if you are trying to play movies in Media Player, then Media Player will not support all the video file types. You can use VLC media player to watch movies and install a codec pack to watch movies in Media Player.

Open www.filehippo.com
On the right hand side, you will see K-Lite codec pack
Download and install the pack then you can watch the movied in Media Player.

You can download VLC media player from same link....

The console thinks the disk is a movie and displays play and pause and chinese looking letters appear on the screen. It won't allow me to do anything


The problem you are facing is of a copied Xbox 360 game you are probably trying to play on a Genuine Xbox 360, these discs are read as a movie disk and it shows as "Play DVD".

When you try to play such discs, it would give you dvd media control bar on the bottom and the message in chinese letters is actually a message asking you to insert this disc in a Xbox 360, which is actually a Modded Xbox 360 that is required

Windows media has sound no visual when playing


Your media player might be having problems getting the video feed from the USB. try copying the file to your local disk and play the movie from there.

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.
