Video File Serve With The Xbox
Posted 18 September 2003 - 01:34 PM
I already searched a lot of websites and looked around in your forum but since now I did not find an answear to my question. Maybe the fact that I am german made my search a little difficult.
Heres ist what I am lookig for:
I want to make a little file server with all the backups of my dvds on (images, rips, ... i donīt know yet). Now I want to play these files with my XBox by connecting it with the PC by network. So far it should not be a problem. I could use the typical media player.
But I would love to see a menü where I can see a small scrennshot of the movie (or the cover) and a small description of the movie. Just like a little library that i can search and scroll.
Do you now what I mean?
Maybe my girlfriend sits on the couch an wants to watcht a movie, so I can just giver her the remote control and zap threw the movies.
Would be nice if you could help me.
Maybe there is a link to the software or a link to someone who has already done that.
A BIG THANK YOU!!!!

With XBMP on oyour Xbox and files shared on Relax you can do exactly as you describe in your post. You can have pictures for each file icon, and press a button to see the movie description from IMDB and the poster. Very sweet!
Follow the tutorials to set this up correctly as it takes a fair amount of tweaking to get it set up correctly.

Looks like it could be exactly what I have been looking for.
By the way how should I backup my dvds than? As an Image File?
