Re: Xbox 360 Video Server, Media Server Preliminary Setup and Tests

For the last month I have been playing around with streaming video and HD content from my HTPC to my XBOX.After installing TT(transcode 360) to convert the video to supported XBOX file types and upgrading my wireless network to allow for a higher transfer rate.The interface between the XBOX and Windows media center is almost flawless.The setup guide I found at this site ( http://tobias-tobin.blogspot.com/200...ovies-242.html ) really helped to make it pretty easy, its not perfect but its close.

Thnaks for the link. I am going to try this tonight. This would be a great way to be able to access your movies easily. How is the sound and picture quality?

Re: Xbox 360 Video Server, Media Server Preliminary Setup and Tests

Hi, folks. I've just noticed this thread. Some quite useful information in here in regards of which video formats are supported. Thank you for this.

I just want to let you know that I'm using Nero MediaHome 4 for streaming my movies to the Xbox 360. It's actually similar to WMP11/Windows Media Connect with a "more advanced" feature set. It supports all important video formats and is able to realtime transcode videos formats on-the-fly which wouldn't work otherwise, like MPEG-2 for example. Since the latest release it also supports video thumbnails which makes browsing a bit easier. If you have a TV adapter installed in your PC you can even stream live TV shows to your Xbox 360.

You can grab it from the official web page: http://www.nero.com/enu/downloads-mediahome-trial.php
EDIT: The trial continues to work after the 15 days test period has passed. It just disables the transcoding and live TV streaming functionality.

More details: http://www.nero.com/enu/mediahome4-introduction.html

Best,
cw

Re: Xbox 360 Video Server, Media Server Preliminary Setup and Tests

I am just diving into this and have come across many articles.

Right now I am trying Handbrake with a few DVDs I already had ripped.

I also tried using Videora Xbox360 converter. I haven't done any comparisons on any movies yet.

Re: Xbox 360 Video Server, Media Server Preliminary Setup and Tests

I ran across a plug in for Media Center called "My Movies" that will organize your movie collection and allow you to browse titles by cover art. I stream it from my PC using media center extender to my 360 and it works really well. I don't compress any of the video files I rip and I would say I get DVD quality playback.

+1 for My Movies
Couple very cool features
- Its able to consume iso / vobs / mpeg's into the same libary
- Supports transcoding on the fly to xbox 360's (works flawlessley)
- Has support for Windows Home Server built right in

frankly, My Movies is a killer application, well worth giving the trail a spin
