    Hi all,

    Recently ive been enjoying media serving to my ps3 and windows vista pc. However, now i want to serve my media to a windows XP PC, and windows media player 11 for xp cannot accept incoming media from media servers, so what is a good program that can play media from my existing media server run by WMP11 on XP?

    Sorry if ive posted in the wrong section, im new here (though you may know me from the ps3 forums) and i did run a search before hand.

    Many thanks
    ANV

    Try taking a look at the post here...

    Adding Windows XP Media client to server


    Alternatively, you could setup the sharing as a file share...? map a network drive to the media share on your server.
