Part 2: Different ways to play videos on Xbox 360

 

With regard to playback videos from a USB storage device, please note that the Xbox 360 will support as big of a storage device as you can format using FAT32, and the maximum size of any single file on FAT32 is 4GB. Besides that, the maximum file size for an AVI, MPEG-4 Part 2, and H.264 file that can be played is 4 GB as well. To play a file greater than 4GB on Xbox 360, you can use Windows Media Player 11 and the Zune software to stream videos from your PC to Xbox 360 console, and notice that the file format must be WMV only. Why is it so special with a WMV file? That maybe WMV is a codec developed by Microsoft.

Well, that is to say, to some extent, we can consider WMV as the optimal format to play or stream to Xbox 360. When you are gonna watch a Blu-ray/DVD movie, or an MKV video, or some files else that are out of the range of Xbox 360 workable formats, what is your solution? We usually make use of Pavtube Blu-ray Video Converter Ultimate to do format conversion. Why do we choose it? Mainly because of its splendid output quality and its feature of an all-in-one application: a Blu-ray ripper, a DVD ripper, and a versatile video converter.

The product is very easy to use and it's the first product I have found that actually rips Blu-Ray discs to my iPod without any extra software and without taking all day. I'm pleasantly surprised at how fast the program is. Very pleased with the speed and 3, March, 2010 the movies look great on my computer and iPod.

I would like to give you feedback on your product. It has great potential. What made me pick your software over many many others? The review in PC World. It received a very nice review. So I figured, why not go with a proven product. I am able to rip a DVD and process its contents for my Powerpoint Presentations which is why I bought the program. I have found it pretty easy to use. The quality of the video is excellent, I am very pleased with that. The output format is also quite intuitive and easy to use. 23, June,2010 It is great that you have so many output options built in to the software.
