I have used this program put the converted file on a ext hard drive and plug to the Xbox works but the I find that the movie jitters like its jumping slightly any ideas to why
mkv contains the saim videostream that an mp4 videofile has. The only think one would really need to do is to copy the videostream but convert the audio depending on the format the audiostream is consisted of. Trust me it saves a ton of time of useless video conversion.
