    Simple I converted several MKV's to MP4's using XMedia Recode. I just remuxed them by copying the tracks, and they won't play on my Xbox 360. It's a standard H.264/AAC MP4, not sure why it won't play. Here's the MediaInfo, please and thanks!

    Could be reference frames, variable frame rate, perhaps others. Try comparing to a known good file that plays.

    It has a variable frame rate which a lot of players won't accept,what you need to do is get the original mkv and open it in tsmuxergui and change the frame rate from 9000 to 2400/1001 and save as file.ts.Then open the ts file with mkvmerge and remux as mkv,then load the remuxed mkv into mp4box save as mp4.

    No need to re-encode the mkv into mp4,all the steps i've type just repackages the video.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.

    I've tried other files with reference frames of 3, 5, & 8, they played just fine. Not sure if I have another video with variable frame rate. I've compared it to another file that worked, tried testing any differences I though would matter, to no avail. Anything else specific you think could make a difference?

    I didn't re-encode, just used XMedia Recode to Remux them, no re-encoding.

    Thank you both for the fast replies!

    It's a standard H.264/AAC MP4, not sure why it won't play.
    As a long time Xbox 360 user, I've come to understand its constraints for video playback. The video looks fine, even with the variable frame rate which never caused a problem for me. And it's in an MP4 which is good.

    The audio on the other hand is probably your problem. Firstly the HE-AAC, which I've never know Xbox360 to like. Secondly it looks like the audio may be 5.1 Surround, which Xbox 360 also does not like.

    You need to use basic AAC-LC Stereo if you want your Xbox to play it.

    No, it doesn't. The channel count of 2 mentioned by MediaInfo is just some info written by the mp4 muxer. The actual AAC data has 6 channels.

    The bitrate say 186 kbps for 2 channels,the original channel was 6.

  11. No, "Channel(s)_Original" is the actual number of channels in the AAC bitstream. "Channel(s)" is just the (in this case incorrect) number written in the mp4 container.
