I primarily bought a Drobo FS to act as a replacement for my win2003 media server (which cooked itself a few weeks ago). I have extensive unprotected .m4v files that I used to use TVersity to stream to my XBox 360 without issue.
I’m having a struggle getting FUPPES to use these files. Using the default configuration it didn’t pick up any of the .m4v files at all, so I added
<file ext="m4v"> <type>VIDEO_ITEM</type> <mime_type>video/x-m4v</mime_type> </file>
After rebuilding the database/virtual containers, I could now see the .m4v files but they showed as unplayable on the xbox 360.
So then I tried
<file ext="m4v"> <type>VIDEO_ITEM</type> <mime_type>video/mp4</mime_type> </file>
and the same thing happened. Does anyone know how to make the XBox see these as playable? TVersity managed to do it without transcoding, but I have no idea what mime_type it was identifying them as.
Thanks in advance!
