    Does anyone know a sure fire way to stream video to the xbox 360 media center? Or something similar. I've searched up and down Google since I've had my 360 and haven't come up with anything.

    If you have vista, it should recognize your computer right away.

    If not, use orb.

    When it's added as an extender all you have to do is have the video(s) in one of your folders and the 360 will be able to play it?

    You don't need to use Vista's media centre. You can set up streaming with Windows Media Player, just go to tools and media sharing and make sure it's set to share media with your Xbox 360. Then all your shared media will show up in the video section of 'My Xbox'. Don't use Windows Media Centre for 360 streaming unless you have to; it's slow as hell and it freezes often.

    Technically, its possible. You have to sync WMP to your iTunes music though.
