As one of the most popular video game console, Xbox 360 provides HD video experience. However, until now, only several video formats are compatible to Xbox 360 including AVI, WMV, MP4, MOV, etc. AVI is right in the list. On the contrary, we still find some doubt about whether Xbox 360 plays AVI, or even when playing AVI on Xbox 360, the message "Can't play this content because it may not be supported" appeared. Let's figure out the reason behind this phenomenon.
Similar to MKV, AVI is also a multimedia container storing video and audio information with different codec. At present, only AVI with DviX and Xvid codec can be viewed by Xbox 360, but others not. In other words, if your AVI file is in other codec, Xbox 360 will fail to play the AVI clip.
