Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this divx movie, the 360 reports that it is an unsupoerted codec.

I thought the 360 only played WMV or DVD files the pointer here is the 'unsupported codec'
have'nt tried divx encoded discs on mine yet but it won't play divx from my hard drive, I have played a divx movie in media centre on my xbox via streaming, but the codecs are installed on my laptop.

The 360 will play Divx mate, straight from a disc, memory stick or streamed over a network.

I re-encoded it into Xvid and it's working fine.

Have you downloaded the Divx codec to your 360 mate, it'll not play them without the codec.

I just read that the 360 doesn't support anything older than Divx 5.0, this movie was Divx 3.0, so there's my answer :)
