Electronic Arts and Microsoft released this trailer of The Godfather on Xbox 360 yesterday on the Marketplace. I also want to announce that I've decided from now on to encode the 720p movies to WMV files using the VC1 codec. Why such a change? There are a lot of (good) reasons: The codec itself is much more efficient than XVID, it's accelerated by a lot of recent graphics card, it's supported (or will be officially really soon) by ffmpeg so it's now available on all platforms as open source, and finally the Windows Media Center owners can watch the videos directly on their Xbox 360. The encoding time is almost 3 times longer than before for me, so this is a big change but I hope everyone will like it. Media Center owners, let me know if it worked! Update : The media servers 6&8, and the streaming server are finally back online. Yay!
