Stream media from your PC to Xbox 360 with Windows Media Center or Windows Media Player

There are many guides out there on how to stream media from your PC to Xbox 360, so I just paste the link here:

Just some key points to note:

  • Ensure in your router, UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is enabled.
    Configure your router at , or if your IP is x.x.x.x then usually it is http://x.x.0.1  or http://x.x.x.1
  • Ensure your PC and Xbox are on the same subnet (preferably both should be on the same type of network : wired or wireless )
  • Ensure your firewall does not block port 88 and 3704 (both UDP and TCP).
  • Turn off DMZ Hosting (which expose one IP in your router to the whole Internet).
    Turn off port forwarding as well.

  1. Most importantly, remember to check if your PC and Xbox connect to the same type of network: wired or wireless. In my case, I had trouble when Xbox is using wireless, so to be safe, I just plug both PC and Xbox to Ethernet using cable - it's faster and just work !
