    The few times I've asked about this, I've usually been told to just stream it using the functions already available, but I don't like having to keep my computer switched on to play a film, etc, or the limited functionality of Windows Media Centre. I've searched Google a lot of times and heard about some homebrew that allows playback up to 720p, although I'm not sure why 1080p isn't supported since I hear an Xbox 1 can be modded to run at 720p and play with XBMC. So, any recommendations for the 360 to play AVI/MKV/etc videos and also any FTP clients for the 360? I'm not asking about an FTP client for connecting to my 360 using my PC. Rather, I'd like to use a client to download data from a server to my 360, instead of tediously transferring to my PC and then to my 360.

    Thanks as always!

    There was some project for a media player but I've never heard of it again.

    The 360 in terms of homebrew was never great.
    I hoped that with the release of the RGH, Homebrew would pick up it's pass but nope.

    That's great news, ploggy. I never used MPlayer but it's great to see that XviD and h.264 should play out of the box, and MKV files. Also, that multi-emulator homebrew is very interesting. Thanks for the heads-up.
