Soon after I get Synology DS409+ as my NAS server, I set up my Xbox 360 to enable DLNA/UPnP media server and connect Xbox 360 to Synology NAS. I once face problem playing AVI videos to Xbox 360, but it is fixed after switching off the transcoding features. Now I have some AVHD files and MKV files, which could not stream to Xbox 360.
Some of the AVCHD files are from the new camcorder Lumix GH2, and some are the vc-1 files from blu-ray backup. While looking for solutions to stream AVCHD/MKV to Xbox 360 from Synology NAS, I find Aunsoft Video Converter as the recommended Xbox 360 video converter make the .mts, .m2ts, .mkv and even .tivo videos compatible to Xbox 360.
Below is the quick guide for you to convert AVCHD/MKV videos to Xbox 360 supported format on Windows 7, and share video and audio files on NAS with Xbox 360.
Step 1. Import files to Aunsoft Video Converter.
Run Aunsoft Video Converter as the best AVCHD/MKV video to Xbox 360 converter. Click the "Add" button to browse the .mts, .m2ts, .mkv files from PC hard drive folder. You may also drag and drop the files to the program UI.
Step 2. Choose Xbox 360 video format.
Click the "Format" option, and choose Zune/Xbox 360 Device > Xbox 360 HD Video(*.wmv) as output format. The video to Xbox 360 converter will transcode the files to WMV for Xbox 360.
Step 3. Convert AVCHD/MKV to WMV for Xbox 360.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the Xbox 360 video converter will start converting and merging GH2 AVCHD files for PS3.
After conversion, just transfer and store the files on Synology NAS, and you can play AVCHD files (VC-1) and MKV files on Xbox 360 without any problem.
1. To join and merge the files into one, click tick the checkbox for "Merge into one file".
2. To backup blu-ray movies to MKV or make a full disk copy of blu-ray disk in vc-1, you can use Blu-ray Video Converter to rip the files on Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.
