Video Converting

Postby madmsk » Wed Oct 13, 2010 3:57 pm UTC

Hey guys, I recently got a hold of a Torrent Bytes account, so I downloaded some videos, and now I'm attempting to stream them to my xbox 360. I've got most of them working, but a few of the files were .mkv files and .ogm files. So I need to convert them to .avis or something else my xbox can play. Any suggestions?

I use Handbrake myself, seems to swallow anything I can feed it, you can do batching and have presets for certain targets.

There is a chance that the videos might work if you change their container from mkv or ogm to avi. You will need to remux the files, unfortunately I only know how to do it complicated ways. You could try ffmpeg, download it from To use it extract it to a folder, then run cmd. Navigate to that folder and into the bin folder and type the command: <i>ffmpeg -i "C:/path/to/input.mkv" -vcodec copy -acodec copy "C:/path/to/output.avi"</i>
If you want another program, you might try Super.
