It doesn't support the mkv container though making it goddamn useless to me.
MKV is just a container, I don't know how many times on this board I've had to tell people it's codec support that matters not container
Containers can be remuxed.
Right, but before today I have never been able to stream x264 files. It would say "unsupported codec".
Viper: I am streaming .MKV files. At least now I am with Windows 7 RTM MCE.
That's because Windows 7 actually knows how to stream to the 360.
The only limits I know are video bitrate
- H.264 video support: Up to 15 Mbps, Baseline, Main, and High (up to level 4.1) Profiles with 2 channel AAC LC and Main Profiles.
- Added MPEG-4 Part 2 video support: Up to 8 Mbps, Simple Profile with 2 channel AAC LC and Main Profiles.
And the 360 won't do 5.1 sound when streaming H264, at least not AC3 or DTS, only that WMA audio codec in 5.1. It will downmix AC3 5.1 to 2.0.
