    hey guys just like the title says, i have a bunch of video's that are taking up space and currently i don't have the funds to buy an external and i would like to just put them on my 360 Hard Drive which is pretty empty aside from 2 cd's and a few game saves. So is it possible to convert them in Mac OS X, similar to Hand brake or iSquint? i just want them to be playable on my 360. then when i get an external i will have one USB going to the 360 and one to my mac for back up and storage. then i will have all my media available on the 360. PLEASE do NOT tell me to get connect360, i have it and paid for it with no luck. Thanks in advance.

    I'd be interested to know this info too...I'll do a little research


    I tried converting movies to WMV to stream with connect360 but never got them to recognize...

    Anyone have a solution, I need to get these off my mac mini for the time being. and i would like to put them on the 360 rather then put a data disk in every time i want to watch seinfeld or family guy.

    Does VisualHub transcode to WMV though?

    edit: shiet it does, I updated it recently and never looked at the new tabs.

    To the OP go try VisualHub it's a great app.

    SO! there is no way to get videos off "memory sticks and data/dvds" like microsoft says? does windows xp have a converter cause i have xp pro and i uninstalled it because i wasn't using it for anything (i was gonna use it for games but a 360 kills a core solo mini)

    The fella that does visualhub is working hard to get the X360 conversion working. Visualhub is a top notch app, making small work of large transcoding jobs. If he gets this working and he's ever in Iowa, I'ma buy him a steak.
