It is any of their online content. The issue isn't that netflix on the 360 isn't well done because it is. The problem is netflix online content is lacking IMO. Add in the fact that it's not HD and the entire experience is meh. Might as well just use your 360 as a media extender and stream movies to it that way.

So, I realized that I have to fuckin' change formats on all of my videos/movies for my 360 to stream them from my PC? UGH

Im buying a ps3 in week. It will be less painful to use that to stream, it sounds like?

IIRC there are 3rd party streaming software that circumvent this problem, try TVersity.

Less painful? Yeah. Painless? No. I've come to accept that nothing ever works quite like you'd like it to.

btw, this thread is pretty retarded

http://ps3mediaserver.blogspot.com/ Best streaming app hands down for the ps3. It transcodes everything. Only downside is for full blu-ray quality ya gotta have a gigabit wired connection. 100mbps caps out really easy. I do believe he was adding xbox support also but I dunno since I don't pay attention to xbox crap since I have a ps3.

And yes it is painless. I tried the others, found this and had it setup and running in 5 mins.

i use this: http://ps3mediaserver.blogspot.com/

i've never run across something that wouldn't play at all. it works wonders, even for mkv and other formats not directly supported by PS3/360. if something doesn't work by just clicking on it, you go to the transcode folder and play it through there (that tells the client to transcode it). like i said, i've NEVER run across a file that wouldn't play and i use it daily.

360 can detect the file server, too -- but it won't be able to play everything. i don't want to go fishing for quotes again, but 360 has some limitations preventing the sort of compatibility you get with PS3.

i also wrote a small tutorial for how to have ps3mediaserver startup automatically when windows boots - http://blog.dfyb.net/?p=152 (tutorial starts at 2nd pic)

I make more in a year than you make in 10, so next time you want to call someone out on being a "poor hick" you probably want to check that first. It's even more funny because you've gotten your panties in a wad over me owning a BMW and buying Apple computers.

You also fail at reading comprehension. No where did I say or insinuate that the Xbox is a more open console, nor do I care. But ignoring the fact that approachable development on the system contributes to it's openness to the community is retarded at best.

Getting your software published goes through the same process regardless of platform. This is a hurdle all 3 need to jump over. Your platform isn't open so long as you continue to tightly rule what is allowed to be downloaded and what isn't.

When it comes to my development arguement, I am simply referring to the availability of tools. The fact that Sony is backing off from forcing users to use their hardware a specific way is leaps and bounds ahead of every one else. But that only goes so far -- at some point, they need to throw a bone to developers who aren't backed by a large budget and/or part of a full time studio. If you disagree with this, I don't even know what strange disillusioned world you're living in.

Also, there's more to indie gaming than 14 year olds making first person shooters (Braid, fl0w). I don't much care for indie games, but I do care about the approachability of developing on a system, especially when it is marketing itself as open. An open platform means open development, regardless of what other standards the platform supports. When I can use any PC to freely write software for the platform and deploy/test without a huge upfront cost to purchase a dev kit (compiler, documentation, unlocked system), then it is open.

I only brought Microsoft up for the simple fact that XNA is a step in the right direction. It's a freely available environment to develop software native to the 360 - regardless of how "closed" the OS is comparatively to the PS3. And I said that Sony has ground to cover. Those are both true statements.

considering the fact that I've never worked a day in my life, I'm sure you do make more money than me. Then again, if you made 5$ a month you'd still be making more than me

Yeah, BMW cars suck, but I do own an apple computer so I think you have the wrong person here

But regardless, you've proven how retarded you are by not doing any research. XNA is great and all, but Sony has been offering programs and kits for small developers for a lot longer than Microsoft has.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yaroze

In fact, everything Microsoft does has been done before by someone else. Microsoft has never brought anything new to the table ever. They just take other people's ideas and use their deep pockets to promote them more so that people that have no clue think they're the greatest company in the gaming world

You're still a stupid hick. No matter how much money you might make, you can't buy class or culture

Sadly, im too far to tokyo to meet ya and buy you a beer, but if you want some advice. Avoid Roppongi. Other than that, enjoy the city... Tis a shame its only Tokyo, Osaka is where the cool is at


I wouldn't avoid Roppongi, it's actually kind of fun. It's not "pure" japanese, but it is still entertaining and a district worth visiting. If you want a great view of the city, head up to the 52nd floor the Mori Tower at night. Incredible view! I proposed there last December facing the Tokyo Tower at night.

The same ticket that gets you on the viewing deck gets you entry into the art museum on the same floor. Plus there's a high end mall in the bottom of the building.

And if you're going alone, it's a good place to mingle with other foreigners in the bars. Easy access through the metro.

So you're basically useless and think you've got the right to call someone else poor?

This thread is about the PS3, not the PS1. Net Yaroze is a PS1 experiment, and even still it has a higher buy in than someone wanting to use XNA on the 360. So all you've proven is Sony has acknowledged the need for accessible development in the past and has consciously decided against it this generation. The same generation they're claiming to be open.

Oh, and that you're a useless douche. GG.

no, I'm not useless, I just have good parents and am doing something at University that when I'm out, will allow me to buy you and your useless family. Although it's already really cheap to buy your mother as is

This thread is about a CONSOLE being open. The ps3 is open, it allows you to do things on it that the 360 doesn't allow you to do. The 360 as a console is CLOSED.

You brought up a stupid developer SDK as if it somehow makes the CONSOLE open, but it doesn't. The SDK doesn't give you the chance to use peripherals, the SDK doesn't allow you to watch a larger number of media files, etc etc

So put it in your tiny brain, in your ugly body, that the 360 isn't OPEN and no SDK that a small number of developers will use can change that you stupid fucking hick
