Finally, gamers can unleash all of their PC-canned porn onto their televisions. Reader Cainrok points out that Media Player 11 will support video playback from PC to Xbox 360 without the need of a Media Center Edition computer.
there will be MANY happy 360 owners with this news. I have media center, so no biggie, but 360 fans have wanted this for some time now.
I think the 360 dashboard still needs an update for this to work, so I guess we'll have to wait for the fall update.
Ya I agree, a dash update is needed to enable this, because it opens up media center on the xbox 360 and starts searching for media center computers. It's nice though, I really want to press the media center button on my xbox 360 DVD remote (people with the remote will know what I'm talking about) It's a unique clear button that feels somewhat gel like.
its not gel like you silly nong. its stupid though, NZ and ozzy get bloody REMOTES instead of the headset you yankees get:(
I have to run XP Pro on my systems because my home network is a full domain. This will be great until Vista launches.
anyone try it? it may just incorporate the media extender feature into media player 11, and therefore not need a dashboard update. still nice to know it's coming for folks that don't have media center:)
Its about F@#$%!& time! Hurry up MS. Now only if I can use it as a PVR there would be no need for a PS3.
For those without media center i have it and its really great to able to stream all my movie's to the living room you just have to remember to get transcode 360 so your not restricted on the files you can watch
It replaces Media Extender very well, but a dash board update will be needed on the 360 to stream videos.
... i smell pron!
I`m glad to see that sooo many of you are happy to hear that you too will now be able to stream video from your Windows XP PC`s! Have fun my friends!!! I had to make this a reality since it isn`t fair that only I could do this from my Media Center PC!
wouldn't it be easier to just save that stuff on your 360's hard drive? As far as I know the 360 only lets you transfer songs off of music cds and download Xbox Live content. That's it. =/
