How To: Get Tversity to Stream MKV Files to Xbox 360 [It Works] | Posted at 10:55 AM
The other day I successfully got a 720p MKV file to stream to my Xbox 360. Before I get into the details, I can't guarantee this will work for you. It did for me and it could be any one of these things that will make it work for you.
The last thing I did that made it work was to go into ffdshow audio decoder settings and set it to downmix decoded audio to stereo (NOTE: before I had it set to 2.1, that didn't work!). Here's the screenshot:
Just try doing that. If it doesn't work, then try the rest of these steps that I did.
- If using Vista/7, make sure you have Windows Media Player 11 installed.
- Download the K-Lite MEGA Codec Pack
- Let it uninstall all the things it warns you about.
- Now go into the ffdshow audio decoder settings and make these changes: change WMA 7 and WMA 8/9 to use libavcodec.
Go into the Tversity settings Transcoder page and change it to my settings:
If Windows Media Video 8 doesn't work, 9 works for me. You can change your connection speed accordingly.
These are the changes I made and it worked. If they don't work for you, just make sure you can actually watch the mkv files on your own computer. If you can't, you must be missing something.
Note: While this DID work, my computer was not fast enough to transcode a 720p file into HD WMV so it buffered a lot and was choppy. For low-end machines, I'd recommend lowering the video resolution. Also, forget about rewind/fast-forwarding… that just didn't work for me.
