Streaming To Xbox 360
Posted 24 August 2009 - 05:55 AM
I am sharing from my laptop wirelessly connected to my router, and my 360 wirelessly connected to my router. Although i have tested this with a straight wired connection and seen no difference, with two different routers no less. I have checked and rechecked codecs of the files i'm playing, as well as the bitrates (all below 1000kbps). I am playing back through the dashboard as performance in WME is even worse.
Does the installed codecs on the machine your playing back files from affect playback on the 360?

This guide will help if you are not transcoding though and the media can be played on the Xbox 360 Natively....
Here it is if you're keen to have a look..

and what i mean by that is. the content your trying to send is too fast for the wireless.... have you tried connecting your laptop to the router VIA network cable, and seeing if that fixes your problem?

I do kind of agree with plush, it could be a signal strength/too much data problem.

In fact the native streaming will work if you have assigned the Divx/Xvid download licence to the current xbox you are trying to use it on. The trick is to make sure you assign the licencing rights before you get banned if you want to use this option. (Assigning licence can only be done through xbox.com Here)
The important thing to understand is that the "streaming additonal download" will be licenced to both the gamertag used to download it with and the original 360 you downloaded it on (important if you are using a HDD from an earlier 360 you owned). In short when online with the Gamertag it is licenced to it will always work, but not if you are offline. For it to work offline it must be licenced to the current console you are using, hence the link for licence transfer above.
Hope this helps.
Unsivil, I've experienced similar symptons to those you have listed for either one of two reasons;
1) network interference - are you getting enough bandwidth over the network? If my microwave is turned on for instance it interferes with my wireless connection killing the throughput which causes streamed media to chuck up as you explained.
2) PC HD read access/speed. If you have other apps running on the PC (including background apps or virus/spyware etc) they can interfere with the HD read spead on the PC, which then flows through to the xbox end. I've also seen an about to be faulty HD do something similar as well.
Without more detail can't really help more than that. Hopefully it helps put you in the right direction.

Well I had just been reading through some of the banwave forums and was a little concerned as some people were saying with this latest banwave they are not able to stream/watch DIVX codec movies anymore. Anymore I use my Xbox for watching tv shows and movies via streaming more then playing games online. Scared me into thinking about blocking all internet access to my xbox and saying the hell with xbox live on that console and have another dedacated to xbox love.
My 360 was banned and I mostly use it as an extender. I'm not sure why (and am almost afraid to ask) but my media streaming capabilities have been completely unaffected. I can still stream xvids, music, and connect to Windows Media Center to watch live TV from my Win 7 Ultimate server.
When the ban happened, my 360 refused to connect to Windows Media Center (said I needed live to use it). I was still using a Win 7 pre release version. Yesterday I reformatted and installed the RTM and everything has worked fine.
Just throwing that out there.
