Help, I'm trying to stream movies & music down from my PC to my xbox 360. when i test my media connection it tells me that PC selected - Failed

My network route
Internet->Belkin F5D5231-4 Cable/DSL Gateway Router->then 1 x ethernet cable to my PC and 1 x ethernet cable out to my xbox.

Xbox live works without any problems. I have wmp11 set up to share with my xbox. ive turned windows firewall & Mcafee fire wall off and forwarded the correct TCP&UDP ports on my router.

Re: PC Selected - Failed

Wmp11 streaming works upon universal plug and play on your router to direct streaming. I have had this problem too. Maybe people do. I found that upnp on my router was always the problem. Make sure it's enabled, and if you have not restarted your router do that. and after you enable upnp, its a good idea to restart it also. I'd give it a 75% chance its a universal pnp problem. Yet if your port forwarding, you might need to disable it, i dont know, i always just used upnp for simplicity. Finally, double check you have a static ip for your port forwards if you continue on that route.

Xbox wont let me play movies from my pc 69-807B0191

Xbox 360 has limited codecs, if you want to utilize more file formats download the media pack on xbox live. but for your streaming pleasure try out TVersity or PS3 Media Server it also supports xbox. just install it on your PC then stream the videos to your xbox.

How to play video/music on xbox what formats does it support

Movies I convert them to .avi and stream them from my PC to 360. Music is .mp3. Again I stream these from my PC. You can put a music cd in the 360 and copy the contents to the HDD.

Here's a link for one of my other answers to link your PC to 360:

How to stream video through xbox

on the dash board go to media center
write down the 4 digit number and log onto the site it tells you
enter in the number
you will use the media center to look at pics listen to music or watch movies off any windows pc on the network in your house. If you have multiple computers in the house you can access them all with the media center extender.(your 360) it streams all this over your network. sometimes this can be a problem due to lagging. I bought a Western Digital 1terabyte (1000GB) my passport external hard drive and formatted it to FAT32 and backed up all of my music and movies off my computer to it. the external hdd runs off of a usb and doesn't need to be plugged into the wall so I can take it any where. it is a little bigger than my iphone. it works on my 360 and ps3 great. if you have xbox live download the "optional media update" from the marketplace for free to be able to play more types of video formats. you don't need a gold subscription to do this

How do i get windows media to work on my xbox

To use your Xbox360 as a Media Center Extender, you must "link" the Xbox to your Media Center PC. Follow these instructions:

This should only need to be done once. If you just want to stream music/movies from your PC, it should be auto-detected by the Xbox as long as it's on the same network. Make sure you have the latest version of Windows Media Player (version 11).

I wanna use a phone line to get the internet and the music off my laptop to connect to my xbox 360...?

Phone line? As in dial up? No dice. You need, atleast, a DSL connection or faster to get Xbox live.

You can use a UPnP media server, such as TVersity to stream music from your laptop to the 360. What's cool about TVersity is that even though the music you want to play is an unsupported format for your Xbox, it will automatically transcode (make it into something the Xbox 360 can play).

If you have a broadband connection (e.g. DSL, Cable, Sat, etc.) you can have Tversity stream your favorite internet radio stream to your Xbox 360.

Download the latest Windows Media Player, Tversity or These other media servers, install, configure (TVersity is fairly easy to setup), and go look for the Tversity folder in your Music section in the NXE menu.

I wrote a how-to on setting up TVersity here if you need help setting it up.

Hope this helps,

Can`t stream media to my xbox

Make sure your items are not hidden, try using a different folder, also music and and other forms of media can be in different formats that are not recognized by microsoft. Try with other forms of media. Also next time when you post please be a bit more specific, like step-by-step, that way you might even solve the problem yourself!
