Thread: I can't play on Xbox 360

  1. #1

    Default I can't play on Xbox 360

    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)

    I believe the problem is in the mpeg4 codec, usually the code is XVID or DIVX for the Xbox to play the file, you will need to check the FourCC code that is being written to the video codec to make sure it is one of these values or change the encoding to h264 which should work better.
