    Hi,

    I have a bunch of xvid movies on my PC that I can stream wirelessly to my xbox360. This works flawlessly.

    I started playing with MyNet last night on my TF, connected to my PC, found the shared movie directory ... but the movies wouldn't play. Further reading suggests my TF can only handle H.264/MPEG-4/H.263 video playback with the stock player.

    I have moboplayer installed and can watch these movies from an SD card with no issue.

    Is there any way I can get this to work with MyNet?

    Alternately, is there an alternate DLNA app that I can use that will connect to my PC and play my XVID's without any conversion?

    cheers

    Pete :D

    Thanks for the heads-up, I'll take a look. I paid for Astro, so I may try that first.

    MyNet or Splashtop should work also- but I noticed almost a second or two of lag with Splashtop, and every 5-10seconds a quarter of a second glitch during movie playback.

    MyNet doesn't work for me, which is why I posted in the first place.

    How could you stream through Splashtop? I don't wish to watch a movie that is "playing" on my PC in the next room.

    Pete :thinking:

    After persevering with Astro, I finally managed to connect to my win7-64bit machine, navigate to my movie directory, only to be told "Astro does not support remote playing of files". Sheesh.

    Es File Explorer installed and playing my files in seconds ... job done.
