How old is your version of XBMC? I have a version from 10/31/05 and  
it plays everything I throw at it. I had a version from around July,  
and it even had the software to decode H.264/x264 (though the CPU  
couldn't stand the load).

My advice is find a torrent tracker (try http://bt.xbox-sky.com:8080  
All they deal with is XBox software) and download the latest version.
