Status code 04-8007065b for xbox 360

Dude, you probably have the xbox blocked in your PC's sharing options. Just go to: Control Panel>Network and Internet>Homegroup>choose media streaming options.Your xbox should appear on the list of devices on your connection. simple allow it.
That was my solution to this error at least...later.

Cant play movie from my pc to xbox. status code 69-807b0191

This error is most commonly associated with a sharing permission problem on the PC. What you need to do is go to the video you want to play (or the folder it's contained in), right click on it and click the "Share" option. This will bring up a new window with a drop down menu. Pull down the menu and select "Everyone (all users in this list)" and then click the "Share" button at the bottom. After it saves all of the settings you should be able to go to your Xbox and play the video.

A good guide to sharing with the 360 can be found here :

Xbox 360 Not Playing Music Through External Hard Drive

In windows media player 11, click on the small down arrow below library and select media sharing. Check the box for share my media then turn on you console. I dialog box will pop up asking you to approve file sharing. You can then customize your options for that device. If the dialog box dose not pop up you have a firewall problem. For the Iomega Media Drive, you have to use the software that came with it. Open the program click on configure, select the folders icon, and look next to your media folders and make sure DLNA is on otherwise your console cannot access those folders.

I cant hook up my xbox360 to my computer

You need to have a router in the middle. You cannot hook the computer and the 360 up directly to each other. You plug the 360 into the router and also the PC into the router. Then you run the network tests on teh 360. To get the 360 to play any files (music/movies) on your computer, open Windows Media Player and in options go to teh sharing tab and add to library.

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.
