Re: Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

Yep - same as me - glad I'm not the only one, but sorry at the same time anyone else is experiencing the problem. Hopefully some genius here will look into it and come up with a solution for us, eh?

Re: Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

Thanks for asking - Media Player and VLC on Xbox report the movies' lengths are 00:00. Good question - on my Mac and Win 10 the movies file sizes are correctly reported, as are the movies' lengths. Thanks

Re: Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

Thanks for the time but that really wasn’t an “answer.” The movies play fine in WIndows 10 and on my Mac using VLC. Again, some movies play fine - the ones that show a non-zero length. The ones that show a zero length on my xbox, not on other devices, won’t play. Installing the HD as a network appli...

Re: Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

They play fine on my MAC, upon which I ripped them via an external blue-ray player/recorder. NTFS isn't a native option for MAC to use.

Re: Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

Something else - I had to rename many of the movies from the automatically generated names, Does this somehow confuse media players? Thanks again all!

Re: Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

Exfat, though I don't know why a different format would allow some movies to play on my Xbox and others not. Either way, Exfat so as to allow reading from pretty much any device and avoid the 4Tb limit (my HD is 8Tb). Thanks for your interest.

Xbox One X VLC reports 0.00 for movie lengths

I ripped a bunch of my blue-rays to a new external USB hard drive I purchased for the purpose of making my blue-rays instantly accessible to my Xbox One X. The titles all show up as does the splash-icon in VLC on my Xbox. However, many, not all, but many of the movies show as having zero length and ...
