Xbox and Windows Home Server


This is a pretty good article that describes how to serve up your content from your Windows Home Server to your Xbox.  It is working perfectly for me.



The one thing that I want to figure out is to have the video transcoded to play on the Xbox.  The Xbox only supports a relatively small subset of video formats.

    Give http://www.runtime360.com/ a go as we use that with our 360 and it works really well. Pity Microsoft limit the fill formats so much.

  2. The problem with Transcode360 is that it requires Windows Media Center. The Windows Home Server doesn't have the required components to run it.
