Not sure really where to take this one but:

I have a movie file (just a tiny little 5 minute clip) in .mkv format.

my 360 will not play this file when I go into the media player and play it through my lan. (shared file on my PC) "can't play this content because it may not be supported...etc"

but if I simply copy the file to USB and plug that into the 360 then it will play that file...
what the...???

*same file*

Are you simply sharing the file via SMB on your PC, or are you streaming it via DLNA?

Allo;

on the 360: My Video Apps -> System Video Player -> PC -> media file == does not play
on the 360: My Video Apps -> System Video Player -> Portable Device -> media file == plays just fine

(the "Portable Device" is simply a USB stick)
so it's the same player on the 360, same file, but two different "locations". Should play them both it seems... no?

Depends on what the computer is doing. I can't access my music files on my desktop from my PS3 sometimes.

Computer was idle - not sleeping and not hibernating just idle
