The only way I've seen to play mkv's properly and without streaming through your PC is to use Showtime media player for the ps3.

you can't just play mkv's on a xbox360. I tried and could not do it. I had to use tversity and stream from the pc. but that's suck a waste of electricity.

I use ffplay, sucks when it freezes though as fast forward and stuff don't work all that well...So if your movie stops you are pretty much scre*ed...Even if you get fast forward to work I find it's always out of sync after...I would say maybe 75% of the time it works great but can't play files over 4gigs obvious reasons.

P.s. I do love it for the new x264 rips that have been coming out for tv though..Nice and small and without ffplay the xbox won't see them..

I came across this the other day, it lets my Xbox see and play mkv's just fine - I sh*t you not wink.gif

or

http://shark007.net/win7codecs.html

I'm using x64 Win 8, haven't tried the other options (note there's an extra file to download for the 64 bit versions of either os). Just to clarify, im playing using the system video player on the 360 - not the Xbox Video or whatever the new video player thingy is.

Unsure if I its ok to link to other sites, if not then admins please remove this post. If all is good then I hope this solves many peoples issues! smile.gif

Well there's nothing stopping you still using it, although getting the old Xbox to spit out HD video may be a tad tricky.

..........of course you could always try XBMC on one of the multitude of platforms it's now available on, including the 25 Raspberry PI which is perfectly capable of full 1080p playback? Or maybe Android is more your thing?

The mkv's now show under my regular video player but it still says the content is unsupported. Is there something else I need to do?
