XBOX360 / TwonkyVision / ISO FIles

Post by egoldy » Mon Jun 11, 2007 4:55 pm

All,

Can someone confirm something?

If I'm running Twonky Vision can I:

A) View ISO images of movies?
B) Does this work on the XBOX 360 (e.g. can I watch ISO images via TWONKY on the XBOX 360?

Please let me know.

Thanks!

It does work through Windows Media Centre, vista or MCE2005.

You can mount the ISO using a 3rd party tool, like DaemonTools, or Microsoft's VirtialCD utility.

Then let Twonky scan the CD drive.

The downside? Well each time you change the ISO, you will need to get Twonkyvision to rescan the filesystem, and your content better not be encrypted copyrited DVD's, and that will of course need decoding...

The bottom line: TwonkyMedia will stream MPEG (what DVD's are), but there is likely to be copy protection on any commercial DVD's , in addition to the hassle of moutning the image and stuff...

Is there anything special that's needed in Twonky to do this? Under linux, I mounted an iso via the loopback interface to a directory that I have setup for videos under Twonky. I had Twonky rescan and it didn't find it. If I could get this to work, I'd just make a different directory (mount point) for each movie and modify my fstab to mount them automatically whenever I reboot.

Oh, and yes, all of the iso's of movies I have are unencrypted.
