This tutorial was made when there was hardly anything out there. Great Instructable is what the first line should have read. Sorry i did not note the date posted. DannyboyINXS 8 years ago Reply Yeah sorry mate, lol i was actually writing a less offensive reply, but backspaced it and re-wrote it cos i got pissed at something else ahahah. It just triggered my angry side a bit.
What i was meant to say was that there are many programs for this task out there now. To be honest though, i would just use them for say mkv files, rather than mp4. Xbox have included mp4 playback in their video player for a few years now, so i hardly see this worth it anymore, unless you want to play back mkv like i said.
Unfortunately though, mkv is an HD format, and streaming it on the fly would be pretty pointless seeing TVersity kinda shrinks it a bit into a format for the xbox. So i doubt it would even serve that purpose. I suppose if you were serious about mkv, to try and convert it to WMV-HD seeing that could probably play back without much quality loss.
Good luck buttersnake 9 years ago Reply After having problems with WM11 freezing up and not connecting i tried tversity and it worked great the first 2 hours. After that i kept getting a message saying that the server couldn't start etc. I can't get the server to work for my life now.
DannyboyINXS 9 years ago Reply if u have tried right clicking on the TVersity icon in the system tray and clicking "start server", then i suggest you restart the computer or something Also, another thing to try is when you installed TVersity, in the start menu, there should be a batch file to start the server I even re-installed it.
It works fine after an install but if i close the program and open it back up to get it streaming again thats when it wont start the server. I read on some forums where other people are having the problem and they are suppose to be working on it. I really like the program because i could never get WMP11 or anything else for that matter to even get started by choosing files. Breakbox , what a masterpiece of multimedia. I tried another program called orb and it worked just fine with no problems with the server.
Only problem with it is that it is very clunky and just not up to par compared to tversity so im not even going to use it. I will just watch movies the way i did before. I take the avi file or whatever it is and just burn about 6 or 7 as data on a dvd and that way i don't waste a dvd on just one movie. DannyboyINXS 9 years ago Reply yeah i've heard about orb but then again i havent tried it because of other options i had
