help with videos
ok so i just got my 360 (elite w/ 120gb hard drive) and in the media i can play music and look at photos off of my computer but cannot play or see any videos. music is in my music and pics arein my pictures and videos are in my videos but still nothing, there are 2 .avi and 2 .mp4....i dont even know if i can watch videos this way, but id appreciate any help.
P.S all the music and videos are in windows media player 11
AVI is not supported on the 360 and MP4 support was available after an update so either convert the AVI to WMV or MP4.
Even MP4's require you to download a seperate file from any of the automatic updates....If I remember correctly it asks if you want to download this when you try to play a compatible MP4.
WMV's are supported as well, but I think MP4's are better....they have the same quality as wmv/divx and are generally much smaller file sizes.
I convert everything I have to Mp4 and it will stream to 360 and can be played on PSP as well.
However to use MP4's you need to use the Zune software instead of WMP11...it's free so it's not a big deal....and it's not like you have to view movies with it, just have it installed and setup the share folder with your MP4's within the Zune player...then you never have to look at it again.
Not sure whats out there to convert to MP4 now, I just use PSP video 9 to convert...convert for psp 3.4+ and then you are good to go....download and then batch convert....
