There is little to no documentation on this, that I've been able to find.

I have a jtag'd box, with a 1tb 3.5 sata soldered to the mobo. I've been able to get games, dlc and arcade content working on it.

How do I play movies, like vob's, avi's, mpg's...etc etc...from the video library or anywhere else?

Or can I, at all? uhh.gif

you can get the optional media update from any other console/user account and use yaris-swap to unlock to use on any jtag console. as you cant connect your jtag to live (well shouldnt anyway) to download update.

its on standard 360 hard drive partition 3

here:-

directory:
CONTENT\0000000000000000\FFFE07DF\00000002\

files:
E80F25563729D257B11083100B9BB7F6846404CCFF = optional media update
18D30C6D5B779E0B75BB45ADFD9B4AD377022816FF = optional ipod support

just googled FFFE07DF and downloaded the file from the very 1st link and all is there you need, pre yaris-swapped. i didnt even know about the optional ipod update, never had one. well i got something out of this too, sweet smile.gif

Thanks for this post, I had sort of forgotten about the media update. However once I needed it on one of my modded consoles I would have had to start searching for it. Now I have it done so I won't have to worry about it when the time comes now.

I don't know about the 360hdd, but I know on an external usb drive, you can put them anywhere, then go to 'media library' and choose 'external drive' and then browse to where your video is.

I am going to test this out now, but I am thinking perhaps putting them in the:

CONTENT\0000000000000000\FFFE07DF\00090000\ folder may work or

/partition3/mindex/media/ where .wma files go

I just tried both of those locations using an assortment of file types and still got nothing showing up. I'll try and hook up my 120gb HDD that is on my live console that I know has some content in the downloaded videos folder and see if I can find where they are located.

Edit:

Ok I just got a video off my live xbox hdd that was in the CONTENT\0000000000000000\FFFE07DF\00090000\ folder and copied it over to the same spot on my jtag HD and it came up and played just fine.

The issue is finding out what format those videos are in. The one I used was the Adidas commercial that was promoting FIFA 06. I tried running it through gspot to see what codec and format it was and it came up unknown. I opened it in hex edit and it came up with PIRS on the first line. I am going to look into what I can do with PIRS now and see if we can't come up with a way to convert videos and then upload them to that location and get them to play.

Edit #2: I just opened that adidas file with a PIRS editor and it just has a default.wmv in it. Now it's just a matter of seeing if there's a way to create or add files to a PIRS container.

So you just drop the movie file, avi. xvid, etc right into the 00090000 folder?

Nope it doesn't work. It only comes up if it's contained within a PIRS container which I don't think can be created as of yet. The Adidas file was just a wmv within the PIRS container located in that folder which plays.

So until we can figure out how to create those containers we are stuck.
