Dvd Easy mkv to Xbox 360 or PS3

Hi there

My first post here.

Here's a tip for all those who want to watch their mkv HD movies on their Xbox 360 without long convert times (can be anything between 3-6 hours)

This program comes in very handy:




You just load your mkv file choose the simple settings and click convert. It will extract the video and audio files and puts them into a mp4 file which can be read by xbox 360.

It took 30min max on my old PC so its pretty good and no loss of quality.

Dvd Re: Easy mkv to Xbox 360 or PS3

I've just given GOTSENT a go and it has produced an MP4 file slighly smaller than the original but when i try and and share it over my wired network using the XBOX 360 I can't see the files.

I've tried the GOTSENT trouble shooting section and the bit that tells you to re-name the file to .avi or .mpg of streaming through Windows Media Player 11, but they still aren't visible.

The converted file playes fine on my PC.

My Specs

Windows Vista Business PC
AMD Athlon 64 Dual Core 3800+
2 GB RAM
Nvidia 8600GT 256MB Graphics card

Any help much appreciated!!!

Make sure that you have mp4 codec with WMP11, try download K-lite Codec pack. of Combined Community Pack (thats what fixed mine). Also after install restart then go into options of WMP11 under file type make sure MP4 is checked. Then delete your the files from your Library (not your computer) then rebuild your library in WMP11. should work fine. However the 360 will NOT play any mp4 4GB and over. even if it is exactly 4gb

Hope that helps

This is quite a old thread i know

But if you are still having trouble (or if anyone else is having this problem) then all you need to do is Right click on the gotsent.exe file and click 'run as administrator' :) should work fine then.

There is absolutely no video quality loss when using programs such as Gotsent, basically what the program does is convert the audio into a capable format that the Xbox/PS3 can handle. Also taking the video format profile and changing it from High@5.1 to High@4.1 so that the xbox can play it. So unless having 5.1 surround sound dosen't matter then this would be the best way to convert MKV's to MP4 without any quality loss. "If you dont mind 2ch audio with low bitrate" Also I would recommend XeonMKV its alot cleaner and has many fallback version of MP4 Box which is the main writing application. This will usally default to the most stable version so you shouldn't have any problems. Gotsent and XeonMKV both allow the video to retain the x264 codec. WMV is the only true way to incorporate 5.1 surround sound and get around the 4GB file limit that is placed on MP4 files. If anyone has any questions regarding this please feel free to PM me.

Here is some other useful info I thought someone might could use.
A: The Xbox 360 console supports the following for AVI:
Video bit rate: 5 Mbps with resolutions of 1280 720 at 30 fps.

A: Xbox 360 supports the following for H.264:
Video Bitrate: 10 Mbps with resolutions of 1920 x 1080 at 30fps

A: Xbox 360 supports the following for MPEG-4:
Video Bitrate: 5 Mbps with resolutions of 1280 x 720 at 30fps.

A: Xbox 360 supports the following for WMV:
Video Bitrate: 15 Mbps with resolutions of 1920 x 1080 at 30fps.

For newer codecs, H.264 and WMV (VC-1), the 360 supports 1080p. Older codecs,
MPEG-4 & DIVX, it only outputs in 720p.





Here is a list of all my Xbox Ready HD movies

I apologise for the bump, but what exactly are "simple settings"?

Additionally, I get this error. ----> http://www.imagecross.com/11/image-h...=2893Error.jpg

Much thanks.
