Watch MKV’s on Xbox 360 streamed through Windows 7 Media Center

This was much easier than I ever expected.
I installed Divx on the Win7 Media Center machine (just the codecs, I didn’t install any of the other stuff).
Then I made sure that the MKV played through Media Center, which it did.

Then I went to the Xbox 360 Media Center, went to “Videos”, and the MKV was shown with the thumbnail image. It just played…no magic involved!
