I began by adding video to XBMC on my Mac. The videos show up and i am even able to watch them. however on my XBox360 XBMC does show up but when i try to see the Video library i get a message stating, "no videos found".

Any help here would be appreciated!

Did you scan it into the library (i.e. does it appear under "Movies" on the home page?)

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Again, did you scan then into XBMC's library? Adding your videos alone is not enough - they must be scanned into the library as well.

Also note that the XBox 360 cannot play many movie formats.....

System: XBMC HTPC with HDMI WASAPI & AudioEngine - Denon AVR-3808CI - Denon DVD-5900 Universal Player - Denon DCM-27 CD-Changer
- Sony BDP-S580 Blu-Ray - X-Box 360 - Android tablet wireless remote - 7.1 Streem/Axiom/Velodyne Surround System
If I have been able to help feel free to add to my reputation +/- below - thanks!

Adding videos to the library (wiki)

Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.

You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , [[userdata]] = userdata (wiki), etc
