    You might have configured your media center for Xbox 360 console but you haven’t added all the compatible codecs in order to play the video yet. The image files might be regular JPG format so you will not get any kind of issue yet. But in order to play video you will need latest codec video player. First of all make sure that you have installed the Windows Media player 11 in your computer. If you haven’t then the .VID files may not be able to play it.

Xbox 360 does not chunk the video depending on the overload of the utmost extension, bitrate otherwise the number of frames for each second. All data over are the most favorable parameters beneath which the image from dissimilar sources is played devoid of whichever issues.
