Xbox Team Details Xbox 360 WMV Support
One of the new features added to the Xbox 360 in the recent Fall Update is the ability to playback WMV video from a variety of sources, including PCs running Windows Media Connect, Windows Media Player 11, the Zune client, optical disc, and USB storage. Now, the Xbox development team has detailed exactly which codecs and video formats are supported.
Microsoft’s Windows Movie Maker can be used to create movie files, and the Xbox Team recommends that any videos created be at least 360 pixels high so scaling is minimized. Anamorphic content is unsupported, so videos should be re-encoded in a square-pixel format. According to the Xbox team, the following codecs are supported:
|Windows Media Video 7||WMV1|
|Windows Media Video 8||WMV2|
|Windows Media Video 9||WMV3|
|Windows Media Video 9 Advanced Profile||WVC1|
The Xbox team also listed a number of common WMV formats that are currently unsupported, including the Windows Media Screen and Windows Media 9 Image (Photostory) formats.
