Using VLC to stream videos on to 360
« on: February 06, 2006, 11:54:02 AM »

Hi,

Was just wondering if it is possible to use VLC player or any other player to stream videos onto the 360... Have used Windows Media encoder to stream DIVX movies on to the 360 but dont think the quality is all to great and its hard to que up movies etc.... However since VLC media player supports streaming as an output isnt it possible to set it up to stream videos the same way as media encoder does ?? have tried setting it up myself but havent suceeded... Wondering if any one else has managed to do so if it is at all possible and if so if they could explain what settings needs to be made.....

P.S. if VLC player cant be used is there any otherprogams besides Windows Media Encoder that can be used to stream videos so they can be wathced on the 360 ???

Thx for any answers and help

Currently, the only way to stream... is through Windows Media Encoder. Which it looks like you've already done.

Yep have done that and it works (with widows media encoder that is).... just seemd to me like it could work with VLC player as well since vlc can stream in Mpeg1 format which the 360 is supposed to support..... was just a thought.... let me know if any one got it working, i had problems with the settings using VLC myself....

the problem is that the 360 will only accept connections from a windows media center pc.

yes you can see this guide  made for me

To transmit video to the xbox 360 with the program vlc must
make the following thing, (you must have media center on
your PC):
open vlc
step 1: options preferences
step 2: to select stream output- sout stream->
transcod
step 3: in the section of audio this audio codec
destiny write wma and save
step 4: to create a file with the extension asx for
example videovlc.asx and to open it with a text editor
and to write following mms://direccion IP pc  :  puerto
for example mms://192.168.1.66:1234 and to place it in
folder of videos so that it can see it xbox 360 step
5: in order to begin to transmit the video we go to
vlc we selected file : -> to open file select the file
with the button browse soon we activated stream output
and settings in the new window that appears we marked
mmsh and in direction we put the IP of our PC
192.168.1.66, they can leave the port by default or to
put another one but if they also change this they must
change it in file asx next we select the type of
encapsulation that can be MPEG ts or MPEG ps or MPEG
1, select video codec WMV1 Or WMV2 and the rate of
bits with which we wished to transmit

NOT SELECT ANYONE CODEC OF AUDIO SO THAT DOES NOT MARK
THIS OPTION (if they wish to put subtitles select the
option overlay subtitles) we give it to accept (if
they are going to put subtitles they activate the
options of subtitles and in settings select the file
that contain them) and next occurs it in ok and is
going to begin to transmit. In the 360 enter to the
media center and select my videos and next the file
videovlc.asx and we give ok and in a while we will
begin to receive the video
