View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] Xbox 360 Video Streaming

August 24th, 2008, 03:57 AM
I am running Ubuntu 8.04 and using uShare to stream video to my 360. Some of my videos play on the xbox and some do not. I was hoping to transcode all of the videos using VLC to an xbox friendly format. The only problem is that I don't know what to transcode the videos to. I would like to keep the .avi extension if possible. I have tried a bunch of different formats, and none of them seem to play on the 360. What I need is instructions on how to use VLC to transcode those files.

I'm also open to any other solutions. For reference, my videos are in a bunch of different formats including .mkv and .flv's. Please assume that I have limited knowledge of video and audio formats. Thanks all.
