HOW-TO stream video from VLC (VideoLAN-Client) PC
#4
right click somewhere (like your desktop) and select "new > text file".

rename that file to something like videolan.strm. if you have file extensions turned off on your computer, you may want to turn them back on by going into window explorer's "tools" menu, selecting "folder options > view" and then making sure "hide extensions for known types" is unchecked. that way you can see that the file really has been renamed to videolan.strm and not videolan.strm.txt.

next, open that file up in textpad and enter one line of text as follows:

http://192.168.0.10:1234

note that 192.168.0.10 is the ip address of your computer on the lan, so change it to whatever yours is. 1234 is the port number that you set in the videolan stream options screen, and http is assuming that you've selected the server to stream over http (you may as well since it works no worries).

next you either put this file somewhere on a share on your computer which you've already got mapped through xbmc (like your videos or music share) or you ftp it over to the xbox into the xbmc playlist folder.

when videolan is running, simply select the playlist from xbmc to connect to your pc.

edit: on the front page of my site i've got a similar little guide at the moment
