i've never had a problem with xbmc playing movies or videos before, but just recently for about a week its been acting all screwy.
all my videos i've already had on there work fine, its just the ones that i try to copy to my xbox now are messing up. they'll only play for about 5 seconds and then they'll exit on me, and its also strange that using the directional pad to fast forward/rewind doesn't work with these videos, but it still shows the video in good quality and the total time of the video too.i've also tried recopying files that did worked before and they still worked again
i think the main reason they don't work is because converting/mergeing with certain programs. but they work on my compute fine, just not my xbox
heres some of the stuff that i've done, and all these files ended up with that 5 second exit thing
converted several quicktime movies to .avi
copy movie to dvd2xbox, sent it to my pc, then merged the movie using a .vob program
did the same thing but then converted it to an .avi
using that same movie, i converted straight to an .avi without merging
i ripped a movie using dvd2xbox, and it didn't even work on the spot
and i ripped that same movie using a dvd ripping program on my computer and it still did the same thing
like i said all these files work fine on my computer, it could be some of the new programs i've used but dvdx2xbox screwed up a movie too for some reason, and i've used that alot without any problems.
or could it be my codecs or something like that, i never updated anything so i don't know.
sorry if this is confusing, but i'm confused right now and need some help
