    Hey all, have any of you had any luck streaming videos through your xbox using wifi?

    I have it working to a degree, but the video pauses constantly (like every 4-8 seconds) and sometimes speeds up to catch up. This is useless to me because I need the videos to stream because I tape my kids dance routines so they can use the TV to practice all week.

    I have tried a lesser resolution, bubbleUpNp and it still happens. (but the video quality is amazing on a 47" LED)

    I tried connecting my phone to the xbox using USB (nothing) and I tried connecting it directly to the TV (USB: get an error not compatible).

    My only other option is to purchase a samsung blueray with wifi, but I don't want to do that and have the same problems. There is also perhaps the option of the HDMI cable to hook up directly to my TV but I thought using wifi would be a much better experience than it is.

    I can connect to my PC's through the xbox and browse for files, but this means transferring the videos to my PC and I wanted to avoid this setup.

    I do not want want to be wishing that I bought a Samsung Smart TV, but I am beginning to...

    I'm having no problems at all streaming to my tv using my xbox, it works really good it might be your home Internet watts causing the delay.

    I would like to think so, but right now I am streaming a 90 minute video to my TV/xBox from youtube using bubbUpNp and there is zero lagging. Smooth as silk.

    It is only when playing a video I took on the phone, otherwise it plays fine on just the phone...

    Is there a way to change the format of the video to something other than the default? (.mkp?)

    I would prefer to just film it that way and not convert it if possible.
