Overview

Microsoft Xbox 360 is great not only for playing games but also for playing movies. The Xbox 360 console supports movies in most formats like AVI, WMV, MP4, H.264, MOV, M4V. However, though MP4 is claimed to be supported by Xbox 360, due to various codec issue, some MP4 video files will not play on Xbox 360.

Why fail to play MP4 on Xbox 360 and the solution to successfully play MP4 on Xbox 360

Xbox 360 can play MP4 video files with extension of .mp4 or .mov with video codec of MPEG-4 AVC H.264 and MPEG-4.

As MPEG-4 AVC H.264 codec, support is limited to the following specifications:

  • AVC Profile: Baseline, Main and High Profiles;
  • AVC Level: up to 4.1;
  • Video bit rate: 10 Mbps with resolutions of 1920 × 1080 at 30 fps;
  • Audio profiles: AAC, 2-channel, Low Complexity.

As MPEG-4 codec, support is limited to the following specifications:

  • Video profiles: MPEG-4 Part 2 (Simple Profile and Advanced Simple Profile);
  • Video bit rate: 5 Mbps with resolutions of 1280 × 720 at 30 fps;
  • Audio profiles: AAC, 2-channel, Low Complexity

Solution

Some MP4 files downloaded from internet or ripped from DVD/Blu Ray disc by certain DVD Ripping software uses AAC with 6-channel (5.1 sorround sound). When trying to add such MP4 to Xbox 360, system will says “No videos found”. Even the MP4 files can be transfered to Xbox 360, When playing on Xbox 360, you only get video with no audio. Such MP4 files with 6-channel audio will need to convert to MP4 or MOV with AAC stereo (2-channel) or convert to WMV with stereo or 5.1 sorround sound if you care about the audio quality.

Some MP4 files cannot be played on MP4 due to codec issue. For example, if the MP4 uses MPEG-4 ASP format,it will be difficulity to transferr such MP4 files to Xbox 360. You may try to change the extension name from .mp4 to .wmv but we cannot ensure this action can solve the MP4 playback problem. The recommend solution is still to convert your MP4 files to WMV or MP4 which can help you fast and easily transfer MP4 files to Xbox 360 for successful play.

Happy 2012 Chinese Valentine’s Day

Introduction

Chinese Valentine’s Day Originated from a very very old Chinese Love Story, a romantic and beautiful love story that every girl was told even they were very yong.

Chinese Valentine’s Day is known as Qixi Festival (Chinese: 七夕节; literally “The Night of Sevens”), also known as Magpie Festival, falls on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month on the Chinese calendar; thus its name. It inspired Tanabata (七夕) in Japan, Chilseok (칠석) in Korea, and Thất Tịch in Vietnam. It has sometimes been called Chinese Valentine’s Day (Chinese: 情人節; pinyin: Qíng rén jié) since the late 1990s, which is, strictly speaking, an inaccurate portrait of the festival.
