Movie Library on Windows Media Center Extender

Movie Library on Windows Media Center Extender

I have a share setup on a NAS server with ripped versions of my DVDs. I pointed the Windows 7 version of the Windows Media Center Movie Library feature to the network share and it's able to find and play all my movies when running Windows Media Center from the local computer.

Maybe the XBOX 360 cant read the codec that the video file contain.

"As far a I know, extenders still don't support ripped dvds out the box. It could be slightly different for Win7, but here are the instruction to enable dvds on your extenders for Vista and hopefully Win7 too.

And since your movies are on a NAS you cannot create sybolic links. But of all the luck, the same people also have instructions on how to use a NAS or WHS.

(Not allowed to post two links. Look in the comments.)"

"I had a lot of problems using an Xbox 360 as a media center extender during the beta -- it was pretty much just broken. Never really had a chance to try this on the RC, but from what I have heard the problem doesn't exist in the RTM.

If you are still running the RC, upgrading to RTM (if you can at this point) might help."
