now, i'm trying to stream mov and mp4 files from my pc to the 360, using of course wmp11. With divx and avi no problems what so ever, but mov and mp4 files i cannot, because wmp11 apparently cannot read them!

QuickTime content (.mov, .qt)
Apple Computer developed the QuickTime file format to create, edit, publish, and view multimedia files. QuickTime format can contain video, animation, graphics, 3D and virtual reality (VR) content. Only QuickTime files version 2.0 or earlier can be played in Windows Media Player. Later versions of QuickTime require the proprietary Apple QuickTime Player. For more information, visit the following Apple Web site:
http://www.apple.com/quicktime (http://www.apple.com/quicktime)
MPEG-4 (.mp4)
MPEG-4 is an International Standards Organization (ISO) specification that covers many aspects of multimedia presentation including compression, authoring and delivery. Although video compression and file container definition are two separate and independent entities of the MPEG-4 specification, many people incorrectly believe that the two are interchangeable. You can implement only portions of the MPEG-4 specification and remain compliant with the standard.

The MPEG-4 file format, as defined by the MPEG-4 specification, contains MPEG-4 encoded video and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)-encoded audio content. It typically uses the .mp4 extension. Windows Media Player does not support the playback of the .mp4 file format. You can play back .mp4 media files in Windows Media Player when you install DirectShow-compatible MPEG-4 decoder packs. DirectShow-compatible MPEG-4 decoder packs include the Ligos LSX-MPEG Player and the EnvivioTV.
Like uh? Am i being dumb? Like, the xbox can read them but i cannot stream them because media player cannot?

Anyone knows how to workaround this?
Cheers and thanks in advance.

Try to rename .mp4 and .mov to .wmv, that helped me once I needed to play one mp4 file. Mine problem was that I couldn't even see the file because it wasn't added to WMP11 media library. After renaming the file it was added to library and played nicely. That was some time ago so don't know how it works now. Also sometimes audio channels can block the video. I am not sure but 5.1 audio files doesn't play or something like that.

I remembered one other thing too. I had problems with streaming divx files. I needed some codec pack for 360. So I used my usb memory stick and put one divx file to it. Then when I tried to play it dashboard asked me to download that codec. After that streaming worked too.

A friend (programmer) after listening to my drama was kind enough to write a program, that runs as a service on windows, monitors my D:\Video folder, and everytime my feed aggregator downloads a movie, the program detects that if it is not *.wmv it re-names it to +.wmv, so that way its automatically added to the wmp11 library and i instantly see it on the xbox, without need to rename the files myself, by hand.

So, if anyone by chance has the same problem as i do, just let mt know i'll pass the program to you.

Well you can always use TVersity, its only because WM11 doesn't allow you to add MP4 to the library, kind of stupid as it allows you to add MKV which isn't compatible with the 360.

MP4 just has to be encoded properly

The primary causes 90% of the time for why MP4 doesn't work on the 360 are 2 things, using the wrong video codec, stick to H.264 or MPEG-4 Part 2 (I prefer to use H.264), and the second reason is usually the kind of audio.

Don't trust MP3, don't trust AC3. Always make sure it's AAC, 2 channel, Low Complexity (6 channel will cause problems, even though you sometimes get lucky).

You follow those basic rules, while making sure the bit rate isn't above 10Mbps and reso and/or fps aren't above 1920x1080 and 30fps, and you should be fine.


Adobe Media Encoder does a pretty good job, and fast, especially with 2 pass conversions, and so does Media Converter, which is a bit faster than Adobe Media Encoder, I've noticed, but then I believe it's perfectly optimized for my processor and video card.

I've been able to play a few 60 FPS MP4 videos from this site. Reminder that these videos didnt have 5.1 channel audio. Also anything over 4GB on MP4 will not play.
