as of the fall update, the 360 now has divx support.
I have tried media server but the xbox gives the message "the server has disconnected...."
music still works fine, do I need a new filter to play divx?
I tried removing the divx2wmv filter with no difference
A previous update changed the way the 360 accesses upnp video shares, I think it now uses browse rather than search, which is nice since it allows for folder based browsing. However, the current version of x360mediaserve relies on a quick hack that works because the xbox 360 only asks very specific search queries. To get it to work the server will need to support upnp browsing.
I plan to add support for proper upnp browsing but ideally there's a number of things I want to do at the same time such as move to a proper database. Unfortunately I'm too busy to work on it at the moment but hopefully I'll get a chance sometime early next year. If I get a spare moment I might see if there's any way of providing a quick fix before then.
thanks, I wish I knew enough about java to help you :(
