    Default dvr-ms files stuttering and playing in stereo on Xbox 360

    Hi!

    I've been evaluating Mezzmo as a means to play my MKV files on my Xbox 360; however, I noted that it should also be able to stream my dvr-ms files directly to the 360 from my Windows 7 computer using the Xbox 360 profile. What I am finding, though, is that playback of dvr-ms files through Mezzmo on the 360 results in stuttering (as if it's playing every other frame). I've also discovered that the audio playback is not 5.1; rather, it's stereo. Playing the same dvr-ms files through Windows Media Center on the 360 results in proper video playback and 5.1 audio.

    Here's the FFmpeg info for two dvr-ms files I've been using as a test; both utilize 5.1 AC3 audio:

    Any ideas as to why I'm experiencing this behavior?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    As a test, can you please turn off transcoding and try to play those files and see if they play?

    Current device profile will transcode those files, thus they could be stuttering because transcoding is slow or for other reasons, but if the XBox can play them natively, then we can add them to the device profile to be passed through without transcoding.
