I have an Xbox 360 as a media extender to a Windows 7 PC. Most files in my PC video library are visible and play on the Xbox, but when I added some downloaded files to the Video folder, they would not appear on the folder listing on the Xbox.
I thought that it might be a codec issue. But after playing around with the PC for while, the videos suddenly appeared in the XBox listing and played OK. I have since added more videos to the video folder, but they are not coming up in the XBox and I don't know what I did to cause the earlier "missing" videos to appear.
All the videos appear and play in the Windows Media Center on the PC. The videos in question are in XviD format (I have other XviD files which play OK, in the same folder).
- Two videos in same folder. All are XviD in an AVI container.
- Only one of the videos is listed and plays in Media Extender
- Both videos appear and play in Windows Media Center
in response to one of the comments; it's been a couple of days since I added the files and I've rebooted both systems several times, so it's not a time issue
