Default Anyone get HD video to stream in HD

Hey guys been beating my head against the wall on this one. I have the 360 and cant seem to get HD video to stream.

Im not really into video formats but I have tried

( AfterDawn.com: Guides: Convert MKV to MP4 for Xbox 360 (Easiest Method) ) which is an encoder specifically for encoding HD for 360. FAILED twice with 2 different videos. worth noteing that the files for me took hours and hours to encode.

ive tried using 3 differnt Media servers

Windows media play 11 and 12

PlayOn fantastic hulu and youtube player for the 360 as well

TVersity - Home excellent transcoder but turns all the videos that the 360 doesnt know into MPEG 2 format which plays them but downgrades the signal to a regular DIVX look.

The only options Ive seen for this are hacks that can get you banned from Xbox live and not going to let that happen just to watch some pretty movies.

So now I sit hear head in hand thinking of building a PC just to stream HD videos ( wife would kill me if she knew. lol ) I know it sounds silly but I didnt think it would be this hard cause DIVX streaming was so easy and for some reason my OCD is focused on this tidbit of techno candy and I need to figure it out so I can move on to a new kind of crazy. lmao And i thought to myself why not tap into the TOG collective to see if anyone is already doing what I am losing hope in doing.

If you download Vuze (Vuze: The most powerful bittorrent client in the world.), formaerly Azereus ... I know, I know ... it a is torrent client, but it does have a trancoder for the XBox 360 ... it isn't the fastest in the world but it has worked for me in the past ... though I have not as yet tried it for any HD files!

Hope that helps

I am always right .. right ?? Or is that left??

the vuze HD converter does a great job of the picture, but the sound is awful.

thanks guys ill give it a try. I did find a certain uploader on a torrent site that offers HD videos that run perfect on the PS3 but for us xbox people the audio needs to be downgraded to 2.0 as xbox doesnt support 6.0 audio in streaming. its a 3 min encode and very happy with the picture it may not be 1080 but leaps above divx.

not sure of forum rules on torrent and such so ill say that if anyone wants info on this pm me.
