Windows 7: Trying to Stream movies on xbox from PC. Media sharing wont turn on...

Trying to Stream movies on xbox from PC. Media sharing wont turn on...

Basically I want to stream movies off my PC onto my 360. I have never done this before and did some google searches on "how to"

so apparently the first step is to turn on media streaming. But when I click "Turn on media Streaming" it says: "Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service or a service that it depends on failed to start."

I have no idea how to fix this and all help is greatly appreciated. thank you

First open a command prompt and type in services.msc then hit enter. Scroll down the list and locate the following services, right click on the service and choose properties, set the service to Automatic rather than Manual.

Right click the sevice, go to properties, make sure that all these services are started then Set to Automatic

Thanks, apparently the service I needed was disabled for some reason. After fixing that problem I did run into another though... =( here is the link to my other thread: How do I get my computer and 360 on the same subnet?
