    Xbox 360 from PC

    1. In the XBox configuration menu you set it either for a dedicated IP address or DHCP. If you set it for a dedicated IP address you can simply check the configuration for that IP address.

    If you set it for DHCP then the easiest way is to download a network scanner (port or IP scanner) from a shareware site on the net - there are many free programs of this type just google for it.

    Use the scanner to identify the systems on your network by scanning from to and then eliminate the ones that you know - your router/firewall, PC's etc.

    2. Most XBox users transfer their files to their XBox using an FTP Server on the XBox. Depending on how modded your XBox is it may already have one. If not, there are many sites on the net that detail exactly how to set that up.

    Once it is configured and turned on, you simply access the XBox via the FTP Protocol - you can do that with an application in Windows or even using the command line.

    3. Because it does not have an application to do that already in place. Most users download one or several of the freeware video players from online sites and install them on their XBox.

    There are a number of websites online that offer step by step details on how to do this and even rate the various programs. Google is your best friend there.

    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 ( 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.
