It's very important for a program to be able to convert the content into the proper format for easy streaming, vital, even. I know that I had to use about three programs to convert a downloaded song from .avi to .mp3 and it really bugged me. Plus I don't trust many downloaded programs, because my Data Center Security showed me that executables I used to trust weren't actually that good.

And that's why I love technology, because it does everything for you while you sit back and just wait for the video to stream on your sweet gadget. Although I found its configuration pretty hard, too, TVersity hasn't raised too many problems in the end, it actually went pretty well, I'd say, and it didn't disturb my spyware.

The video codec that XBMC supports are MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.263, MPEG-4 SP and ASP, MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), HuffYUV, Indeo, MJPEG, RealVideo, RMVB, Sorenson, WMV, Cinepak.

If you would like to view your video files in XBMC Media Player, the best way is converting your video to one of its supportable video format listed above, like MPEG-1, or MPEG-2 using XBMC Video Converter。

The following guide may hep you out:
Put and Play various video and Blu-ray/DVD movies on XBMC.
Hope my sharing is useful.
Enjoy your video.

Thank Will Smith Sharing this Guide.
When surfing online, I have found lots of people have media sharing issues. Actually it is easy and uncomplicated. Lately I found a tutorial show you how to stream Blu-ray, DVD and HD media contents from your computer to PS3/Xbox 360/Wii ( Link to the Tutorial )with simple procedures.

You will find to share Blu-ray/DVD/HD videos and movies between a PlayStation 3/Xbox 360/Will is so easy when you establish a elationship with DLNA protocol between them. Since the DLNA makes it possible to share movies, music and pictures to different DLNA certified devices.

This solved my streaming issues; no need to figure out why some of my .avi files wouldn't play.

So I've been dealing with this TVersity problem on the PS3 for about three days now...  My XBox360 would stream fine - no problems from my Windows Home Server, but my PS3 would stutter and shake, stop and give me problems...  After playing around with a LOT of different options (video encoders, settings in the TVersity XML file, etc...) I finally discovered the root of my problem.  First off, here is my setup:

Windows Home server PP1 (standard Windows Firewall) hosting the TVersity program, CCCP codecs, and no other software loaded (all removed).  I have since added PowerDVD and NERO back on.  Settings for TVersity are as described in this article.

Gaming systems are hardwired, G-Bit LAN up to the switch for my PS3/X360/Will/etc., which is 100Mb  because I like the speed of hard-wire..and haven't upgraded that part yet.  Will try wireless later...

Xbox 360 would play almost any file encoded with NO Problems whatsoever (I have used SUPERC, NeroRecode, and finally PS3 Video 9 (which works for both systems - encoded at AVC720P AVISynth Settings).  No matter what I tried the PS3 would NOT work.

The problem with the PS3 turned out to be with the hardwired network settings (for me) ON THE PS3.  I had it set to Auto (why wouldn't Auto work?).  I changed it to 100TX-Full and Viola' my video files work flawlessly.  Once I order my upgrades I will manually set it to 1000-TX-Full...but that will come later.  I was so torqued, that it was something so simple, but happy at the same time (so I thought I would share this).  I'm going to pick up another Core or refurb'd X360 as a media extender and run it upstairs (cheaper than most other extenders out there).

I hope this helps with someone else's frustrations... I'm a Desktop Support Tech by trade BTW, and don't normally give up on problems until they are resolved - or I'm hungry...  It's 3:15 in the morning here and I guess I'll go eat now...

I'm using it to stream video to my n800.  Having trouble with the ipod Touch however.  It's kinda cool to be able to play video on my portable device without having to down-grade it first and it plays great.  This is nice since i've started ripping all my dvd's to a media server.

I'm gonna see if I can get TV tuner to steam using this...

Here's a real challenge...

 Find me a free streaming app (or even something commercial with a reasonable fee) that: 1) Runs in CLI/ncurses on Linux. No X-Windows! 2) Is DLNA compatible 3) Does transcoding.

Still rocking XBMC on my modded xbox.  Mostly interested in the higher resolution video that original xbox just can't handle.

stew942

I used my XBMC to stream .mpg, but i need a new format as the one i used to convert with is unavailable now. What have you found that works. I'm currently trying DVDFab. Not sure is XBMC will handle the .wmv format. Sure doesn't handle H264

FRAGaLOT

Did G4 explain to you how to install it, explain the issue with conflicing codecs, and get it working like Will Smith/MaxPC did?  I guess G4 didn't explain to you how to post comments properly, with out hitting the back button 4 times to dupe youe spaming post.  Ya tard!

I've known about this for months through maximum pc. Good thing u refresh the hot topics now and again for the new users. Tversity combined with the pc and ps3 works for me.

Most people especially the G4TV crowd knew about this monthes ago.

You have made it sound really simple, but I am lost when it came to codec sniper and figuring out which codec to remove. I removed all divx codecs I could find, yet WMP stills plays them!! I completely rebooted and uninstalled DivX from my machine. You have done a great job with overall walkthrough. Would you mind maybe posting some of the codecs you removed through codec sniper, it would help a ton!

avatar

FRAGaLOT

This sounds great since I have a mass collection of old TVshows encoded in some odd divx format that my Xbox360 can't play, usually due to audio.  Since this transcodes audio this should overcome this problem.

Another thing that people don't seem to realize that in order for your 360 to play divx files is you MUST be online to Xbox live for the codec to be authorized by microsoft to even function. So if you're offline, or XBL is offline for maintenance, or you no longer pay your $50 a year XBL membership, you're completely SOL for playing any of your content on your 360, other than .WMV formats.  This will overcome that.

Someone mentioned clipping problems when using this software.  Chances are this is NOT TVersity fault, it's either your 360 or your HDTV causing the overscan.  Check the display options on your 360 while you're playing a video, and go though all the different modes so that the video fits your screen. Also most HDTV's have a similar function for this, usually stretching 4:5 into widescreen, and overscan settings.

For those of you just saying "I can't get it to work, I have a router and windows.."  well no kidding? Try telling us something that we don't already know.  Like if you have a 360 or a PS3, and more that just a two sentience that tells us nothing to help you.

Lastly to the douchebag who thinks deleting all your codecs is a "retarded" idea.  I find it extremely retarded that you spent that much money on a codecs then they are already free.  However that dosen't mean you can't use your over-priced codecs with TVersity.  Since most people don't waste $100 on codecs, Will is just providing links to a set of codecs that are known to work with TVersity. As well as making a point that you shouldn't have conflicting codecs if you have more already installed. So please stop the douchebaggery, acting like you know everything.

dgrmouse

The suggestion to uninstall any existing codecs is just plain retarded.  I paid good money for my Cyberlink and NVidia directshow decoders, and I quite like being able to play 1080p video with full hardware acceleration and 5-10% CPU usage on a three year-old system.  It would be smarter to investigate streaming with a codec agnostic or codec aware application, like VLC or Media Player Classic HC, transcoding prior to streaming, or just laying out $100 for a MediaMVP that can do it right.

So will this enable me to watch 'regular' TV recorded on my media centre ... running Microsoft Media Centre to record it ... in one room, on my HDTV in another room through a PS3? Thanks

I'm planning on trying this out soon on my Directv HR20 box, now that it has the ability to play streaming audio and video. I'll let you know how it goes.

avatar

peterh14

This streams to my HR20 box perfectly. I've been able to stream MP2, 3, and 4s, AVIs, and DivXs. I haven't tried XVids, WMAs or H.264s yet.

So after a few times of trying to get this to work I finally got it to. My 360 kept connecting then disconnecting. I just refreshed my library and it works great. I've watched some episodes and Its much better to watch on my 40 inch Sony than on my 24 inch Dell.
