Just this week Microsoft released their Fall Dashboard Update, and it's chock full of goodness: Parental timer, orginal Xbox game downloads, a category of cheaper XBLA games, new and improved navigation, online profiles improvements, all that stuff. But what really caught the online community on fire is the improved video and audio codec support, for playing media over the network, or burned onto discs, or straight off USB keys. Full details of the various supported container formats and codecs can be found at the developer's blog. As excited as I am to stream DivX and Xvid AVI files to my 360, I was hoping for some other video improvements. Namely, better DVD and HD DVD playback.
