    I d/l the ps3 media server so I can stream actual video files I have on my computer to my 360, but is there a way to stream websites (youtube, G4, etc.) directly to it? I know about PlayOn but I don't have the $40 to pay for it just yet. Any help is appreciated. :x:

    Looks like it. Impressive that these guys have it work with the 360, the PS3, Windows, Linux, and Macs.

    such a fantastic program. I would still prefer to use it on my PS3. It works flawlessly.

    no the 360 does not support .mkv. you have to convert the mkv to MP4 and then stream it

    my xbox played them ok the other day when i found out. It played mkv files. Stuttered a little bit so I figured that the comp upstairs was taking care of the coding.
