How to convert videos to Xbox 360 video format

Read the step-by-step guide to learn how to convert videos to Xbox 360 video format for playback with Xbox 360.

I just bought the new Xbox 360 and it came with the newest Xbox dashboard. I used to watch videos all the time from a memory stick while being offline. But nowadays it forces me to be online. Whenever I try to play a video it tells me a system update is required to watch this content. If it asks me that I hook my Xbox to an ethernet connection and I sign in to Xbox Live. After that I can play the video but I don't ever download an update.

I have done a lot of research, basically I have movies on the PC in .avi format, mostly all of them are. I am trying to watch them on my Xbox 360 through my network. When you go into the Media Center of Xbox 360 and look at the shared folder on the PC, does not see these videos, because it does not play .avi extensions. I have to find some program to convert my videos to Xbox 360 supported video formats before watching them with Xbox 360.

Finally I have got one Xbox 360 video converter tool called Aneesoft Xbox 360 Video Converter that fulfills many of my needs. It is quite easy to use and can convert most common video file to Xbox 360 video format with excellent video quality and high conversion speed.
