    Default Not playing on Xbox 360

    Happy New Year to all

    Over Christmas I fully moved over from OS X to Windows, on OS X I was using a program called Mac X DVD Ripper, which has worked very well for me so I decided to use the Windows version Win X DVD Ripper

    However doing this on Windows makes my Xbox 360 say the files are unplayable (used a generic MP4 setting on both)

    Can you let me know if this shows anything strange, as I am sure this is just a setting issue when ripping (but the below doesn't mean too much to me so not sure what I might need to change)

    File with problem

    In general, the MP4 file looks OK. Possibly the "mjpeg" stream is the problem. This will be an embedded 400x400px JPEG thumbnail that X DVD Ripper is adding into the MP4 file. Possibly your Xbox 360 is rejecting the MP4 due to this non-supported channel in MP4 files.

    If no success, then post the FFmpeg information for one of the MP4 files that you encoded with the Mac version of X DVD Ripper and that will make for an easier comparison.
