YES! the XbmC can read 3ivx movies but you must first update the codecīs in the XbmC to meke it work with 3ivx movies.
just sownload this pack of Codecīs: Latest Win32 codecpack
and then you must install them is this place: xbmc-2004-03-17\mplayer\codecs

and if you want to your xbox to read alsow MP4 movies you just have to open the XboxMediaCenter.xml with a notepad and edit this:

<videoextensions>.ty|.nfo|.strm|.rm|.m3u|.ifo|.mov|.qt|.divx|.xvid|.bivx|.vob|.img|.iso|.pva|.wmv|.asf|.asx|.ogm|.m2v| .mp4|.avi|.bin|.dat|.mpg|.mpeg|.mkv|.avc|.vp3|.svq3|.nuv|.viv|.dv|.fli</videoextensions>
and there you have your xbox reading 3ivx and mp4 and updated to the latest codecīs smile.gif

i ope that i haved help you

Wow, thanks alot man.

I did that but when I go in and click on the movie nothing happends..?

The movie's called..

movie.xl.3ivx.mov

Well, it shows up like that threw XBMC.

but on my PC it's just..

movie.xl.3ivx


I will see if I maybe have it named wrong on my Xbox.

Thanks.

movie.xl.3ivx.mov


the .mov is the extension of the movie like .avi, if you take this extension the XbmC will not know what the movie type is, please try doing everything again, or you can get this version of the XbmC itīs less guggy:

Xbmc 03-31-2004
try again smile.gif

i never got a 3vix movie to work, i think there are multiple version of 3vix out there, and only the older ones have codecs written for them

what i ended up doing was reencoding the thing to DivX using DivX Doctor and it worked.
You can get a free 30 day trial here http://www.divx.com/divx/

Word of warning, a 1.3 GBs movie (2h50m) took over 15 hours to reencode on a 933MGhz machine.
