The XBox can not do HD reliably enough though. 720p is the best you'll do (although you can squeeze a bit of 1080i out of it). And x264 performance isn't great (you'll get a lot of dropped frames, if it works), so you'll be stuck with xvid. But it is quite nice for the price.

Submission + - Walmart downloads reject Firefox, Apple browsers

babooo404 writes: Last week, Walmart launched their online video download service. Immediately there were posts that the service did not work with the Firefox or Safari browsers. There was a collective, "WTF" when this happened as this is 2007, not 1997. Now it appears that reports are out that Walmart has COMPLETELY turned off the ability to get into the application at all by Firefox, Safari or any other browser it does not like.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
