Hi everyone,

i think all xbox 360 user have this issue with plex if your video use MP3 for audio.

so after looking on the forum i finally found the answer. (all credit go to: Darkholme)

HOW TO FIX:

1.Find your plex folder. ex: C:/Program Files (x86)/plex/Plex Media Server/Resources/Profiles

2.Now you should see xbox 360 app, xbox 360 xml files.

3.Download this two xml files Download link.

4.Extract the two xml files overtop of the ones in the folder.

5.Restart plex.

now your MP3 video should be fine, enjoy !

    So I followed the instructions and copied the edited xml files and restarted plex on both my PC and my Xbox 360 that has a direct LAN connection to my PC, but all files with MP3 audio still have the 5-10 second desync. Any suggestions?

    Iirc Plex server updates will screw with those XML files and the change might not keep.

    Since that workaround, I have given up on using my 360 for Plex (the 360 isn't even hooked up anymore). It just didn't work well and I got fed up. These days it's all PC and Android and Android TV and PS3. Android TV has its own issue I'm trying to deal with right now, but it plays mp3 audio just fine.

    But what I came up with, was I went into the two config files mentioned, and told Plex that an xbox360 can't play mp3 audio (by removing it from the lists). As a result, it would transcode it to another audio format before sending it. You see?

    The two files are doing the same, you can do it manually or copy the two files. it will do the same result, i hope it help.

    I had assumed as much, since you said your two files were based on my work. I was explaining the process to @kressmr who is having a difficult time getting your approach to work.
