Vista & Xbox 360 Media Center with Ripped Movies

I am having problems trying to set my vista media center to stream ripped movies into my Xbox 360. I edit my registry on my vista computer to play ripped movies but I am unable to play them on my 360. I?m trying to stay away from converting my movies to WMV or any other format and stream them from my Zune software, but anything will do as long as they look good on my 1080p TV.

I have my movies ripped as VOB files?

Have you checked the list of formats that the 360 supports? It doesn't support a very wide array of formats unlike XBMC for the original Xbox.

"In this guide, TVersity will actually transcode and stream video at the same time if it is not supported by the Xbox 360 directly"

Google that!

I have problems forcing "media center" anything to work. Probably because of the DRM layering that keeps a movie viewer from reading a file across the network. (This is what networks did 20 years ago).

I find it easier to just use NAS or a portable drive that things can access than trying to force some 'simple' things to work now.
