Hello!
I don't know if people are aware of this or not, but I wanted to show all of you a way to get MP3s or music streaming from your PC onto the XBOX-360 without any CD ripping involved, this saved me alot of time and money!
NOTE: This CAN be done on any XBOX-360, you don't even need a hard drive(If you have a 4gb slim, etc)

Things you will need:
-Winamp Remote HERE
OR
-Windows Media Centre(I will not be going over on how to do it in alot of detail)
OR
-Windows Media Player

-Wifi Connection
- Songs/ Themes
-Xbox-360(DUH!)

[Winamp Remote]

[Windows Media Centre]

[Windows Media Player]

Also if anyone knows of any other software that can be used to stream music from the PC to the
XBOX-360 please post.

Yeah, you can stream using an iPhone or Android as well, you just have to find an app that can stream music from it to your XBOX :)2

My friend used to do this, awesome idea. But if you're on a coin metre then you're kinda screwed.

WORD. If I'm in the gameroom, my laptop is on. Streaming music is sooo much easier that ripping to the XBOX.. I wish I'd known about it years ago! LOL.. I got ALOT of entrance themes on my HDD. I plan on deleting all that and putting everything in the stream. Ya'll keep in mind this tho--- When you add new music, make sure you give the Media Player time to update, sometimes you may not see the songs in the menu on your XBOX right away.. If that's the case that means it needs 2 update in the Media Player.

Cool, you can also use connect360 to stream audio and movies from ur pc to ur 360, that's what I use. Dunno if connect 360 is available for pc though because I have I mac but I don't see why it wouldn't be.

I use it for movies more than music way better to watch shit on a widescreen than a laptop.

The easiest way IMO is usinng Windows Media Player. The only thing to worry about is 1. Have your PC turned on before your Xbox and 2. PC and Xbox needs to be on the same network. Other than that, just save a playlist for every song you need (Ex: download Kaityn's music then save the playlist under the name of your choosing) and it should appear in the ''Custom Song'' section of the game
