But then I'm confused as to why my mp4 file won't play on my 360. I'm trying to stream the file from my pc and all I get is a black screen. I've converted a mkv file to mp4 by...
mkvextract to get h264 and ac3 files
belight to convert ac3 to aac
yamb to convert h264 and aac to mp4
file plays perfectly on my pc but doesn't play on my 360
Oh, one more thing. I forgot to mention that WMP11 does not know how to handle MP4 files to network clients. This obviously includes the Xbox 360. Copy and paste the following into Notepad and save it as MP4_WMP11.reg:
Then, double-click the file from Windows Explorer. This will add the above Registry settings so WMP11 can stream MP4 files to network clients.
Using Avisynth to frameserve fixed jerky video issues for many. There's nothing in the profile you can't set manually, I just wanted it to be done with as few steps as possible. Other studder tends to come from ffdshow. I've got a registry file to fix those configuration issues. The problem is most people for some reason aren't using ffdshow-tryouts. Do others work? Yes. Am I going to help find the problems with every different codec release, which are built NIGHTLY? Fuck no.
To chrislynch, write your own tutorial don't re-write mine. I've written an updated version of this, just can't update my post. Also written HD-DVD to WMV tutorial and Blu-Ray to WMV tutorial. I'm going to put them all together as a PDF.
I'm not sure if your comments have been directed at me. But, I did not come here (like other have in earlier posts) telling you that there are "better" ways of doing this. Are there multiple ways of accomplishing the same task? Of course. Does my assistance, guidance or knowledge dictate, or should elicit an obscene remark from you or anyone else? No.
I joined this form to help post my findings and offer my experience to the matter at hand. Does everyone benefit? I hope so. I hope everyone who reads this thread can benefit from the insight everyone posts here. Otherwise, we all would be stuck with problems, and be ripping our hair out, cursing at ourselves.
Trust me when I say this. I know how much work is involved with writing up a tutorial/guide on how to do something. I do the same thing for my customers as part of my job. Do not take this personal. And before you respond with "I'm not taking this personal," you are. No flaming intended.
