Windows Media Player 11
The new Media Sharing feature of Windows Media Player 11 lets you enjoy the contents of your Windows Media Player library from anywhere in your home. If you have a home network (wired or wireless), you can use Windows Media Player 11 to stream the contents of your library to networked devices. For example, if you have an Xbox 360 or other digital media receiver (DMR), you can use Windows Media Player to stream music and pictures from your computer to that device. This even works with music that you've downloaded from PlaysForSure music stores and services. For more information, see Digital Media at Home.
This is very very very simple, if you can't get this working please put your vista computer back in the box and send it back to the company it came from.
1.) Open Windows Media Player 11 (WMP11) If this is a fresh install configure the settings etc then bring the main WMP11 window up. also on a fresh install it will auto bring up a box that asks you to add media but if you skipped this step heres how to manually proceed.
