Xbox doesn't see my .mkv videos

Hello all,

I use the Moxi products primarily to stream video via Twonky (blu-ray rips because dvd rips won't play for some reason that support could not figure out) but I was playing with the Xbox last night and trying it out.

The xbox can't see any of my video files. I can go into each folder (they are each in their own folder in which I have the video file and the cover art saved as a jpeg) but no files show in the folders or anywhere else when navigating through on the xbox.

I also use PlayOn to stream the dvd rips and the xbox works great with that, however the blu-ray rips tend to stutter and re-buffer on PlayOn which is why I use Twonky for those.

Does anyone know why the videos would not appear in Twonky? I'm stumped. I know it's not an mkv issue as they will play through playon, unless Twonky somehow handles them differently than Playon?

The 360 dosn't support MKV via DLNA clients you have to use windows media center extender and the latest divx codecs to play them with no probs!
