Streaming using an Ethernet network
You can stream your videos to an Xbox 360 by using an Ethernet network. To do this, use an Ethernet cable to connect the Xbox 360 to the router that is connected to your network. Plug one end into the Ethernet port on the back of the Xbox 360 and the other into an available port on the router. Then open the Microsoft media center, select file sharing, and select the Xbox. This will give the Xbox access to files on your computer system.
Streaming using a wireless network
You can also stream your videos to an Xbox by using a wireless network. To do this, connect an Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the Ethernet port on the back of your computer. Open the networking segment of the Xbox 360 dashboard and select the name of your network. If the Xbox 360 does not routinely configure itself, you may have to enter the network's IP address. Then input the WEP security code, which will give it the access to your network.
Once connected through either a wireless or a local network, your Xbox 360 can harmonize with your other Windows based computers to share media files. This allows to access images, videos, music, and any other media that are stored on your system through the Xbox 360 system directly. But sometimes during streaming your media files to an Xbox 360, there are chances that many problems can occur, such as network problems and Xbox problems.
