    When I try to play WMV files using XBMC, it starts to run then kicks me back to the file select screen. Is this because of DRM?

    Im trying to run the HD vids off the MS site.

    Cheers

    if you go to www.rare.co.uk(i think its here anyway) and download the kameo trailer thats in HD, it looks awesome but it stutters, xbox cant really handle HD video im afraid, either that or XBMC wasnt upto scratch when i used it
