    Is it possible to put VLC files onto DVD-Rs and play them through my 360?
    So I have my favorite show, totally complete series, as VLC files on my laptop. I also have a mondo-sized television in my room and I would like to watch them on it. I have Toast 10 Titanium and iDVD, and I was wondering if I can put those files onto blank DVD-Rs, which I have also. My DVD player is my Xbox 360, and I would like to know what format I need to make them so they work properly, and also if someone could tell me some easy steps as to how to make this a possibility? Thank you very much for your inputs

    Specs:
    2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB memory, 250GB HD, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
    You'll probly have to find some way to convert the files... I had one that converted VLC files for my PS3 and it worked great. Just google it.

    Yeah, but do you know what format works for Xbox 360? I'm not sure whether it's AVI or WMV. I have some of the episodes as .ogm, and some are .mkv, and I have been researching for a while but I'm not sure what kinds of programs are the most reliable for that stuff.

    Options you have:

    1) If the xbox 360s is networked with the laptop, you can try this:

    You can also use handbrake to convert the video files, here's a link to a faq that has xbox 360 video format requirements:

    I downloaded HandBrake, will look into that later. I didn't think it was possible to network a MacBook Pro to a 360 since the 360 is Windows?

    windows/OSX/Linux/etc. is irrelevant - the 360 is acting as a media center extender, so as long there is a software package designed to emulate that functionality (or other streaming functionality supported by the 360) for your OS, then you can stream to it. That first link has links to 2 or 3 different packages that will allow you to stream your media to a 360.

    Disclaimer: I own a 360, but I never use it as a media box beyond playing games - usually I either use my mac mini that's hooked into my entertainment system acting as a home theater mac, or my ps3 which I can stream to via the ps3 media server which has a version for Mac or PC (possibly linux too, but I'm not sure)
