so you converted the file, that doesnt count since your altering the original file, so your test is invalid for what I am asking

After Az's latest input and the test file, I tried Kamen Rider W HD and while it showed up and worked the picture seemed blurry. I put the file on a USB Thumb drive and played it from the 360 via HDMI cable to a 720p HD tv. Is it the file being blurred or something on my end?

File won't play. Period.

And I guess that's why. Gah. All that downloading for nothing :(

The Decade 30 and 31 HD specials somehow got encoded @ L4.2 instead of L4.1 (deja vu). So these won't be playable on certain hardware devices.

interesting, no idea how that changed itself, wonder if that happened when upgrading the software, updated my profile to be 4.1 for future encodes,

EDIT: i think it may only be the 360 that cant play it, the PS3 is slightly more tolerant of different levels I think, if someone with a PS3 and XboX:360 could test these that would be cool,

Episodes 19-21 from Kamen Rider W HD batch are a bit lagged when I watched it, am I the only one getting this problem? I tried playing each twice after my laptop rebooted.

it's made to play

i'm just going by what it says on the screen.
but yet none of the HD releases. of any show.
is coming up on it.
only the SD's work.
it almost played Wangan Midnight until it said the resolution was to big.

You can use Convert x to dvd (download it from this Greek site, the language is english, not Greek http://www.fullandfree.info/) and they will play.

but i shouldn't have to do that.
it says it plays MP4 on it's own.
yet it won't play them.
what's wrong with it? i shouldn't have to Convert anything.

Play it back on a pc, it probably cant handle the res, it also might not support x.264, other codecs can be placed in an mp4 container,
