AVI. and xbox 360 help

Hi all, I've been using my 360 to watch avi. files on for ages now, it works flawlessly.
However a few files recently have been showing up as significantly shorter than they actually are.
For instance out of a 6 episode series of 25 minute each, 3 of them show up as being 25 minutes, while the other 3 show up as being anywhere from 9-15 minutes each.
When the displayed time ends the episode continues to play with just a black screen, so just audio.
I have redownloaded the said files numerous times, even using different computers, and even different torrents, but no matter where I download them from, they play fine on computers (the full 25 minutes) but on my 360 only have audio from about halfway onwards.
Rep for any using help.

When that happens to me I just restart the xbox and it seems to sort itself out, i've never had to re-download anything

Restarting my 360 does nothing to the video files at all.

how are you playing them? USB stick or streaming from your pc? If usb try streaming them using tversity its a doddle to set up and plays just about anything you throw at it!

the video files might have been encoded with segmenting - basically where each part between ad breaks is ripped and encoded separately - meaning slightly different bit rates for different parts which could make the 360 trip up. or perhaps they're just slightly corrupt. try googling "avi repair index" find an appropriate tool and give that a shot. might fix it.

Thanks for the advice, but I have no intention of streaming videos, simply because I don't want to.

Why wouldn't you want to? Way easier than having to load everything you want to watch onto a USB stick if you can access your entire PC library (or whatever you want to add to it) directly from your xbox.

Because I don't leave my pc on all the time...
