Streaming to XBox 360
Is there a distro that will work to stream music and video to the XBox 360?AMD 64 3800+ Venice | GeIL 2GB PC3200 (4x512mb) | ASUS A8N-E | 8600GTS 256MB | Antec NeoPower 480 PSU Antec | SLK3000B case | Samsung 2168W LCD

You will need to use a third party application in linux to stream to the 360

Windows Media Player 11 built in UPNP (Easiest to setup but does not transcode)
PS3 Media Server (Yes, it will also work with the Xbox360)
Orb's built in UPNP server
I use PS3 Media Server and Tversity with my PS3. Both provide the best picture quality. I use both because there are some videos that PS3 Media Server can't transcode but Tversity will. However, Tversity transcodes at an extremely slow rate (Barely uses 10% of my CPU when transcoding 1080p content) so every now and then there will be a pause in the video. So I only use Tversity when I have too, otherwise I use PS3 Media Server.
I use orb when I am away from home to watch videos on my cell phone. Orb limits its bandwidth to only 6mbps so it is unable to stream HD content, even over the local network through UPNP.One by one the penguins steal my sanity.

I use the ps3 media server and its kind of a hit and miss with certain files such as .mkv files but I only have a few of those. I don't use the 360 much to stream video, I mainly use my old xbox to do all my streaming.

I have no experience with Geexbox, so please keep us updated on how it works for you!

Windows Media Player 11, Azureus Vuze, and Windows 7 has a built in media distro built in to it.

Isnt applications such as WM11 and Windows 7 limited on the formats it can play? Azureus Vuze streaming is still in Beta and still seems a bit slow and buggy

Was looking for a Linux solution, but sticking with Windows for now and WM11. It just plain worksAMD 64 3800+ Venice | GeIL 2GB PC3200 (4x512mb) | ASUS A8N-E | 8600GTS 256MB | Antec NeoPower 480 PSU Antec | SLK3000B case | Samsung 2168W LCD
