Unable To Stream Converted Video To Xbox 360

Question

I've tried every sort of output and every type of option to convert home video for streaming on the xbox 360. This console is listed under one of the optional output types but no matter what format is selected, nothing will play. I run Win7 32 bit on my PC if this matters. Does Roxio not provide any product updates to keep uptodate with possible console changes?

 

The video is not long, only ~2 min in length. If anyone has been able to do this, please let me know what settings to use.

What formats will an XBox play?

 

What formats did you try? HOW?

 

We can't look over your shoulder so you have to tell us exactally what you are doing ;)

 

Listed below is what is supported by the xbox. I've tried MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Avi, divx, H264, WMV and probably others I can't recall at the moment. Roxio VideoWave has an option to automatically convert video for an xbox console--it just doesn't work.

 

A1: The following list contains Xbox 360 AVI support details:

OK, still missing the HOW you did it :D

 

Quick test to try:

 

Open Edit Video-Advanced (VideoWave)

 

Throw in 2 or 3 still pictures.

 

Click on Export As and for purpose pick, DVD Playback.

 

Just take whatever it defaults to...

 

Then burn it to CD-RW (or any other RW)

 

See if it will play that mpeg on your XBox???

 

(I have to run out now but anyone else is welcome to respond to your test ;) )
