Media Player 12 Not Sharing Stream / Homegroup Will Not Die
Media Player 12 Not Sharing Stream
Long story short I just want to connect my Windows Media Player/Center to my Xbox 360.
I can't enable streaming from the Media Player. It wont show the button or option at all.
I have also tried to open homegroup and turning on media sharing and it wont turn on. The button turns grey for a moment then it goes back to saying "Turn on media streaming".
From the Windows Media Center I can get some kind of connectivity to the Xbox, but its very brief. Usually when I go to set up the extender it gets to building media library on the "Windows Media Center" then the "Xbox Windows Media Center" gives a failed to connect, retry or cancel.
If I take a peek into the network from the explorer the media devices shows Xbox 360 Media Extender and it disappears within 3 seconds also another that says Xbox 360 which stays.
I have tried going into services.msc and making sure UPnP, SSDP, Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service are enabled. I also disabled Windows Media Player/Center from the windows defaults to try and reinstall it.
I want want to get homegroup back to this state.
and not this
Sorry for the pic sizes.
