for Xbox 360 | Among the new features to the Xbox 360 with the Spring
Update is this little jewel below.
- H.264 video support: Up to 10 Mbps, Baseline, Main, and High
(up to level 4.1) Profiles with 2 channel AAC LC and Main Profiles.
- Added MPEG-4 Part 2 video support: Up to 5 Mbps, Simple
Profile with 2 channel AAC LC and Main Profiles.
The question now is does it apply just to the Dashboard or does it also apply to Media Center Extender functions?
Notes: DivX and XviD are MPEG-4 Part 2 ASP. According to the announced support, they are not supported. It also doesn’t say if AVI containers are supported. There is a lot unanswered at this point about the support, but considering audio support is marked for AAC I assuming that it only supports MP4 containers (meaning not AVI).
Edit: Confirmed that it does not apply to Media Center Extender of the Xbox 360.
Update: Microsoft updated the page. It used to say H.264 at 15 Mbps, and MPEG-4 at 8 Mbps. It now says 10 Mbps, and 5 Mbps respectively.
