I have XP on my laptop so I can't stream movies to my 360 with the new Windows Media Player 11. I'm a bit fed up with wasting discs by burning movies in order to watch them on my TV via my DVD player. If I bought a 2GB USB stick, put the files on there and then plugged this into my 360, will I be able to watch the movie files on my TV through my 360 from the memory stick?
If so, what files will it support? Will it support XviD and DivX?
Cheers for any help guys
1. you can't stream video from winxp unless you do a little bit of system hacking.
2. you can't play video from USB devices, and thats not an accident and is unlikely to change in the future
3. there is no way to play divx/xvid or anything like that on the 360. even streaming from a media center pc, the formats the 360 supports is very limited.
if you have an old xbox lieing around, your best bet is to just use xbox media center. thats what i do. i have my 360 and xbox side by side.
