    Trick: Xbox 360 Media

    This is more of a trick than anything. The problem is how to use Xbox 360's media functions that only work with Windows Media Center. I have a media server for all my music and movies so using VMware server I put in a windows media center machine inside a VM and connected it to the samba share I created for all the media. I've also done this for a friend of mine who runs a 256mb ram VM in VMware player to get his Xbox 360 to play with the media.

    Alternatively you could try the X360 Media Serve sourceforge project.

    Works great although you'll need to change the permissions of all the scripts and slightly alter a couple of them (change $var to "$var") to get it working 100%.

    Also, the recent update unfortunately broke video streaming, so atm that's not working.

    That said once you spend 2 minutes making the above changes (which are mentioned on the SF forum) everything else works a treat. You can even relay streaming radio (ala Radio Paradise) to the 360, which is nice.


    EDIT: Alternatively you could try uShare / Fuppes, both of which I've been reading up on since I posted above. Both seem like a better solution, especially so if you've applied the Dec07 software update to you 360. I haven't tried them as yet myself though.

    I burned a CD to my 360. Shortly there after I broke the CD. I now want to import this CD to my Itunes collection. Is there any way to transfer audio files from the console to another source?
