)Formats i have watched so far on my xbox 360:- (divx and xvid compressed)- (non-compressed)- 1 and 2- (Quicktime)- (Youtube format)I'm still trying to obtain the .mp4 codec that is compatible with TVersity - The program that does all the streaming.This is the only Microsoft program you need, which is very simple to install and use.If your like me - impatient, and want a quick and easy solution to watching a video on your 0 - 00 Xbox 360, without Microsoft's stupid proprietary video format (.wmv), then i suggest you try this tutorial. I was pretty impatient, dismissing most of the long tutorials, until i found out a nice little program that streams formats other than to your xbox 360.
MKV format is very popular with pirates due it it being open like it is.
More often than not someone playing an film on a flash drive plugged into their Xbox has pirated the film.
It uninstalled itself on my computer (How this happened i will never know) and I was trying to figure out why I kept getting connection error messages when trying to play non formats on my xbox. Just want to inform all folks who live outside US that Xbox360 is a great media Player.
If you want to access Netflix and other streaming stations on your Xbox360 you can use Uno Telly as I do to get around the geo block. They'll probably never make it compatible, either.
Since i pre-ordered the Xbox 360 (in march 06), i really badly wanted to watch video on the expensive console. (as if Microsoft wasn't happy with the amount of money they made from home and professional!!
So here i was spending so much time looking for a quick and easy solution on sites such as engadget and xbox-scene.To be honest though, i would just use them for say mkv files, rather than mp4.Better yet, this is THE ONLY Microsoft program that is easy to install and use. It is imperative that you install version 11 because the previous versions haven't been written to help stream media to the Xbox 360.Note: Do not miss this step as windows media player is a very important part of the process.Which is to bad, because is such a fantastic format that can hold quality stuff at significantly smaller sizes.Yeah sorry mate, lol i was actually writing a less offensive reply, but backspaced it and re-wrote it cos i got pissed at something else ahahah. What i was meant to say was that there are many programs for this task out there now.
