Video File UnSupported


For a video file to be played, the device you're playing it on must have the proper codecs for playback.

With computers you can add codecs as you need them; unfortunately, on consoles the codecs that are supplied are typically your only choices.

Here's a list of PS3 supported video formats.

Here's a list of Xbox 360 supported video formats. (Scroll to A10 under the More Information tab)
Here's a list of PSP supported video formats.

Fortunately, you can work around the supported format limitation by streaming your media to your console from your computer. Here's some streaming software:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite, also works on Xbox 360 despite it's name!) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac


Hope this helped!

Stream AVCHD videos to Xbox 360 via DLNA-AVCHD to Xbox Converter


Xbox DLNA-AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Xbox 360 support formats on Windows 7 <br /><br />Generally, I have my video to be kept in a D-Link NAS box, so that I can watch them on Xbox. The NAS is quite old, and I will buy a home server similar to the HP models one day. Xbox has a "Windows Media Center" window in the dashboard view, and <b><a href="http://dts-ac3-converter.com/2011/07/stream-avchd-videos-to-xbox-360-via-dlna-avchd-to-xbox-converter/">Xbox Streams videos from NAS via DLNA for HDTV</a></b>. <br /><br />However, the AVCHD files from my Sony DSC-TX100V could not read by Xbox. While looking for the solution to <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">stream AVCHD videos to Xbox</a></b>, I find Aunsoft Final Mate as the recommended AVCHD video converter and joiner with best quality. After dealing the AVCHD files with Final Mate on Windows 7 Premium, I can share the videos using Windows Media Center software for streaming. <br /><br />Below is just a simple guide with AVCHD to Xbox supported format. <br /><br /><b>Step 1. Import AVCHD videos to Final Mate.</b> <br />Run Final Mate as the <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">best AVCHD to Xbox converter</a></b>, and click the Add file path button on Resource tab to browse the folder with .mts or .m2ts files on PC hard drive. For videos from camera, just connect camera to PC via USB cable, and follow the pop-up wizard to import videos. <br /><br /><b>Step 2. Select and join AVCHD files for output.</b> <br />Select the clips on Resource tab or Camcorder tab, drag and drop to the Movies tab. You can create a movie for each file or a movie with several files with conversion. For another movie, just click the Create New Movie button. <br /> <br /><b>Step 3. Choose Xbox format.</b> <br />Click the icon next to the Movie name in the Movies tab, you will see the format options. Move to the Device group, find Zune/Xbox 360 Device and choose Zune Xbox 360 - Windows Media Video(*.wmv) as output format. <br /><br />Click Export button, and the conversion from <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">AVCHD to Xbox 360 support format</a></b> will start right away. Wait for a while, and put the videos to the video folder for sharing. Xbox 360 then can stream videos from the NAS via DLNA.

Part 2: Different ways to play videos on Xbox 360

codecs100401.jpg

With regard to playback videos from a USB storage device, please note that the Xbox 360 will support as big of a storage device as you can format using FAT32, and the maximum size of any single file on FAT32 is 4GB. Besides that, the maximum file size for an AVI, MPEG-4 Part 2, and H.264 file that can be played is 4 GB as well. To play a file greater than 4GB on Xbox 360, you can use Windows Media Player 11 and the Zune software to stream videos from your PC to Xbox 360 console, and notice that the file format must be WMV only. Why is it so special with a WMV file? That maybe WMV is a codec developed by Microsoft.

Well, that is to say, to some extent, we can consider WMV as the optimal format to play or stream to Xbox 360. When you are gonna watch a Blu-ray/DVD movie, or an MKV video, or some files else that are out of the range of Xbox 360 workable formats, what is your solution? We usually make use of Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate to do format conversion. Why do we choose it? Mainly because of its splendid output quality and its feature of an all-in-one application: a Blu-ray ripper, a DVD ripper, and a versatile video converter.

Part 3: How to convert Blu-ray/DVD and videos to WMV for play/stream on/to Xbox 360

We have mentioned in the above contents that the program we will use is Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate. Go to find a step-by-step instruction from the following part.

total100402.jpg

STEP 1: Load Blu-ray, DVD or other video files into this program

Click "Add Video" to import video files, and click "Load DVD" to import Blu-ray or DVD files.

STEP 2: Select subtitle and audio track

Click on the pull down menu after "Subtitle" and "Audio" respectively to select your needed subtitle and audio track as your choice. Your selection can be reviewed in the preview window to the right hand of the main interface.

STEP 3: Select WMV as output format for Xbox 360

Click on the drop-down list at the opposite side of "Format", and then choose "WMV3 (WMV9) (*.wmv)" as output format.

wmv100402.jpg

STEP 4: Do optimal settings for the output WMV files

Click on "Settings" button, and afterwards you can adjust audio and video parameters including video/audio codec, resolution, video/audio bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channel on the popup window. To make it excellent for playback on Xbox 360, you can follow the optimal settings as below:

Video codec: wmv3 (the default one)
Resolution: 1920*1080
Bitrate: 150 kbps
Frame rate: 30 fps

Audio codec: wmav3 (the default one)
Sample rate: 48 khz
Bitrate: 320 kbps
Channels: 5.1 Channels

Do remember clicking "OK" button to confirm your settings.

STEP 5: Click "Convert" button to start BD/DVD ripping or video conversion

Once finished, click "Open" button at the bottom to get the output WMV files for Xbox 360, which now is prepared for playback or streaming.

Part 4: How to stream videos to Xbox 360

Well, as we have mentioned in Part 2, there are at least four ways to stream videos to Xbox 360, from Windows Media Center, Windows Home Server, Windows Media Player 11, and Zune Software.

I am trying to get NetFlix on my XBox 360. I have a router, I have a subscription to NetFlix and Windows live. The XBox 360n test screen keeps telling me that my Microsoft Windows Meadia failed the test....


Netflix is available as a native XBox 360 app, accessible from the Dashboard. It will need to be installed the first time you try to run it, but after that it runs like any other app. You do have to have the system updated to the latest Dashboard to use it, however. Look for it in the video marketplace. No PC is required to utilize the app on the XBox, although the system does have to be authorized to connect to your Netflix account

Cant stream avi files anymore to xbox360


There may be an update that you require, either that or your poor lil Xbox has contracted an illness, i would try and leave it off for a while, then try again. And also, go through your sons xbox and compare it with what you have on your settings. If anything is different, that may be your problem!

I wanna use a phone line to get the internet and the music off my laptop to connect to my xbox 360...?


Phone line? As in dial up? No dice. You need, atleast, a DSL connection or faster to get Xbox live.

You can use a UPnP media server, such as TVersity to stream music from your laptop to the 360. What's cool about TVersity is that even though the music you want to play is an unsupported format for your Xbox, it will automatically transcode (make it into something the Xbox 360 can play).

If you have a broadband connection (e.g. DSL, Cable, Sat, etc.) you can have Tversity stream your favorite internet radio stream to your Xbox 360.

Download the latest Windows Media Player, Tversity or These other media servers, install, configure (TVersity is fairly easy to setup), and go look for the Tversity folder in your Music section in the NXE menu.

I wrote a how-to on setting up TVersity here if you need help setting it up.

Hope this helps,
Bill
