Can I play videos on the 360 without updating?

    I have an Xbox 360 and an external hard drive and I want to watch videos from the hard drive. The problem is I do not have an internet connection on my 360, so when I try to play a video it says it needs to update codecs.

    My question is, are there any video formats that are compatable with the 360 without any updates?

    Thanks in advance
    This is really bugging me.

    I found out I can play .wmv files without an update but wmv videos are very uncommon.
    Does anyone know of any other fomats that work?

    Mpeg codecs should work too, the update is for divx or xvid codes (.avi).
