Released on November 22, 2005, Xbox 360 brings people lots of fun on which you can play online games, watch movies and TV shows, etc. Except for online multimedia functions, Xbox 360 can also allow people to upload videos to Xbox 360 to play from USB storage device, Windows Media Player, Zune software, Windows Home Server and Windows Media Center. However, Xbox 360 can only support few video formats to import into it for playing. MP4 is included. But it is not all MP4 that can be supported to play on Xbox 360.
Xbox 360 can only support the MP4 with specification as below:
