It plays 720p Mpg files, but i forgot the build number. just simple try the ps3 media server and encode it on your pc and stream it over upnp to the xbox, im sure this will work. since i got my new blueray player with dlna i never used the xbox anymore for streaming or video, only for shoutcast.

The latest SVN builds will handle 720p ffmpeg mpeg4 at ~3000 - 5000kbps for example.

 

i use (on linux) something like

 

mencoder something-720p.mkv -o something-720p.avi -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=4000:vrc_maxrate=5000:vrc_buf_size=4096

 

which will produce a file that works on both mplayer and dvdplayer on xbmc

this is a line just to convert a video using "mencoder". I didn't actually convert anything. Are you asking for a test video to see how the playback is ?

If you use windows or osx I'm guessing there are other encoder programs out there that can do a similar thing (h264 to 720p ~4000kbit mpeg4)
