Streaming movies from my Linux laptop to XBox


I have an XBox machine at home, and it’s great. I have a Linux based laptop – and it’s also great. However, during my Windows days I was able to use Windows Media Center to stream movies to my XBox – and I wanted to do that on my Linux box too.

Not too difficult.
Just read this article. Easy. However, it uses ethernet cable to connect XBox and Linux. Well, that’s no longer needed. Just replace, in the ushare.conf file the USHARE_IFACE=etho line with USHARE_IFACE=wlan0. That was enough.
