    Viewing recordings on XBOX 360

    I have the fall update, and WMP11 from what I have read it should work, I only see a crappy little .wmv file to play from my shared folders.

    the website states that .mpg files are supported specifically mpg-2 which I believe GBPVR records.

    Has anyone been able to make this work, if so how?

    Some else indicated they'd given it a go the other day.

    As you said - it'll only play .wmv files, so you'll need to download some other software to convert your .mpg files in to a compatible .wmv format. There is no built in stuff in GB-PVR for doing this.

    I think you need the Media Center version of XP to play MPGs on the 360. GBPVR created MPGs work flawlessly on my original xbox (with XBMC software).

    fudge, I guess it only supports mpg-2 on wmc. I wish MS would pull head out of ass on stuff like this.

    Sorry for the bother, converting all this video just isn't worth the time it would take.

    I started 2 threads a week or so ago on this topic. I don't really have too much time to play around but I am willing to if we can get some more help.


    The conversion should work. I can do it manually with vlc (uses ffmpeg as well). I don't know how to tell ffmpeg to do it using the current code in gbpvr. See the posts here:

    on the subject of the 360, so microsoft has made the cheapest HD-DVD drive available. their Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive works with windows, all you have to do is install some drivers. and it actually "just works" on a mac, however there is no app to play HD-DVDs on a mac, so that cant be tested

    Maybe they just did...they've released developer tools for building your own Xbox 360 games/apps
