HOW-TO stream video from VLC (VideoLAN-Client) PC
#1
i'm not sure if this is obvious to anyone here because it only just occured to me yesterday when i was trying to get some video encoded in an obscure codec to work in xbmc.

the situation was that i tried the video file in xbmc and it wasn't having any of it at all. i then tried it on pc and after a few codec installs it ran very badly within windows media player. then i tried it in videolan and it ran beautifully. ok, so if i can watch it on my pc on videolan, i should be able to set up videolan as a stream server and connect my xbox to it so that i can watch the video in the comfort of my living room, right?

so, i set up a playlist file accessable to my xbox which points right back at my pc on the right port, saved that with the .strm extension, set up videolan to stream (in ogg but that's basically irrelevant) and loaded the playlist up. tada! it worked like a dream.

now i can play anything that my pc can play, on my xbox.
