    In what? Windows 7? It should since it plays them natively. If you highlight / play one in a folder does it work?

    The videos play fine in mpc-hc on the vista pc.

    I'm trying to view them through the xbox media centre on the tv.

    Xbox is connected via ethernet to the vista pc.

    Yup I dont think MC in Vista plays MP4, but Windows 7 MC does. Its just as bad as Vista, MC, it doesnt detect all or any new tuners, but Win7 MC does
