    What is the Xbox Video Archive?


    This is a collection of HD videos I downloaded from Xbox Live during the early days of the Xbox 360. This content was downloaded from the Xbox 360 dashboard from 2005 to 2009 ish.

    Some of this content such as the E3 coverage was only available for a very limited time. What is pretty unique is that all this content was available in 720p HD. High definition content was pretty scarce on the internet back in 2006, i'm pretty certain back then even YouTube only supported very badly compressed 360p flash video. Video quality on gaming websites such as IGN and GameSpot was not that great either from what I remember.

    How did you get this content?

    I used to download content from Xbox Live on to my 360's 20gb hard drive to watch it, you couldn't stream video on the Xbox 360 dashboard back then, it had to be downloaded. My internet was only 2mb back then so even downloading these videos that we're several 100's of mb took a while at the time.

    I remember my 360's hard drive gradually filled up with this content, I then used the Datel XSATA to extract the content from my 360.

    Once I had the content on my PC it was extracted with wxPirs to reveal the WMV video file. I kept these video files and burned them to a DVD-R once I had enough to fill a DVD on my PC. I'd actually forgotten about this until recently when I was randomly asked if I had any old video content from the early Xbox 360 days. I managed to find these DVD-R's after not using them again for over 10 years.

    I guess you could say this content is becoming "retro" now with a lot of it been over 10 years old. As I was asked to share this I thought i'd try and do my bit to keep it available.

    Where can I watch / download this Xbox Live Video Archive?

    At the moment i plan to upload these videos to YouTube as I believe that will be the most accessible way to watch them. I've setup a new YouTube channel called Xbox Archive to make these available. I don't really want to flood the Digiex YouTube channel with this content.

    After these are uploaded to the Xbox Archive YouTube channel i'll likely create a torrent with all 104 videos available in their original format.

    What videos do you have?

    Video content i downloaded was limited to the few games I was really interested in at the time and the E3 events.
