    I have WMC on windows vista ultimate and I like to use my XBOX 360 as
    windows media extender.

    I can play DIVX movies on my PC with WMC. I can play DIVX movies on my XBOX
    when I burn them on DVD.

    Strangely, I cannot stream DIVX movies from Vista's WMC to my XBOX. XBOX
    says the format is unknown.

    How can I stream DIVX movies from VISTA WMC to XBOX 360?

    Thank you,

    Hi Max

    I find the easiest way to view your Divx movies is to share all your movies
    in media player, then from the xbox dashboard go to the media blade and watch
    your movies from the networked shared folder/drive where your divx movies are
    stored, I find that Transcode 360 is slow and you cant skip forward/backward.
    Hopefully, one day, Microsoft will write an update so divx is supported in
    the xbox 360 media center extender as it supports divx on a linksys DMA
    2100/2200 extender.
