    You can use Xbox Media Centre(XBMC) to play mpg's , divx , vcd's , you just need the right codecs. I'm sure it can play direct from cd using the file exlorer.

    I've got loads of vids on my xbox that play no probs.

    Think I got XBMC #XBINS !!

    Cheers

    What type of drive is in yer x-box. Cause some drives are quite fussy about the type of media your using , my drive is quite fussy.

    Try copying the movie file on to the hard discs via ftp and see if it plays it.
