    Question Xbox 360 Codecs to Play Videos - Help

    Hi..

    Really need some help!

    I logged onto xbox live and installed the codecs to watch videos.

    However, if I turn the console off, and then on again, the videos cant find the codec.
    To resolve this I have to log back onto xbox live and only then will it play the codecs (no install needed again)

    My other xbox did the once off install and works everytime, without xbox live signed in first.

    Any advise?

    Thanks

    Delete the codecs. then create a seperate live account redownload the codecs with that account ! see if the videos are able to play offline (it should) then u can delete that account and use ur original account to play videos offline !

    I had the same problem when i replaced my console and doing that fixed it ! if its videos downloaded from live ie. trailers redownload that also after u have downloaded the codecs to make it play offline.

    IT's the drm security feature of the console thats why its such a hassle.

    Thanks.. what you say is possible.

    I used the same gametag as the other xbox when installing the codecs.

    Do you know what I need to uninstall? Is it 'Optional updates'?

    thanks

    under system items on the Hard disk there is 2 things called optional media update and video bookmark data delete both those files and redownload it the way i explained above, ur videos should be able to play offline after doing all of that.
