Fixing 69-C00D36BE error when playing video on Xbox 360
Can’t play this content because it may not be supported.
Status code: 69-C00D36BE
But it was working for other videos, and when I tried playing them from USB storage, it worked just fine. What I figured out is that videos in parent folder worked just fine and they all used the same encoding for both video and audio. I moved problematic videos so to parent folder and, guess what – they played just fine. I might investigate further why is this happening, but seems that path to the videos might’ve been to long or something.
Other error I’ve encountered is:
Can’t play this content because it contains audio or video with unsupported codec.
Status code: 80-C00DF242
Now, this is actually unsupported codecs. The videos in question were encoded with DivX 3 and 4 which are unsupported – only DivX 5 and later are supported on Xbox. I’ll see later on how to transcode them with ffmpeg and I’ll update here (should be easy).
Oh, yes, nearly forgot, when I was getting the latter error Xbox would say openning media or similar, in the case of the former it wasn’t even trying to open it.
