playing HD video using XBMC

Hello, currently running stable build of XBMC 2009-06-01 9.04.1-FIXED-Babylon

and the xbox struggles to play hi definition video, for example 1280x720 will

run very slow with the standard mplayer. When I open the video with dvdplayer

in XBMC the video will play slightly better, but then the audio isn't sync.

 

Could anyone suggest any alternative players or XBMC builds which will run HD video smoothly?

 

Note I am using the High quality pixel shader v2 in the config setup. Cheers

convert your vids to mpg2 in 720p. there is an ps3 app outside that will make this for you. the xbox doesent have enough power for mp4/h.264 etc. ...

 

whats the ps3 application called? yea I will use it to convert mp4, wmv and some avi files which are encoded in HD.

just try it, otherwise use staxrip :lol:

 

:thumbsup1: what do you mean just try it, thats like telling me to squeeze the cow for orange juice,

it just aint possible, like I said mkv2vob only supports mkv. I'll check out this staxrip anyway, cheers

 

(this staxrip program is a pain, any simple tools?? come on people!! help an xboxer out)

What format is your video now ?

What format would you like it to be ?

 

Codec: WMV3

Type: Video

Resolution: 1280x720

 

would like it to be playable on the xbox. (divx, xvid whatever, but keep the video quality and audio)
