I have a ps3 and I have been using it to stream my huge media collection to my TV. my ps3 failed, I keep reflowing it but it keeps overheating but that's not what this is about. I have all my media set up the way I like it on the media server. But the network performance of Windows Media center lacks the speed and ease of use that I have come accustom too.
I would like to set up an app that just displays media servers on the network and allows simple navigation of them and streaming of video files. I can play videos with managed direct X with no problem, and designing an interface is the fun part. But I can't seem to find any decent documentation on connecting to "a windows media server"
If anyone could help me with this I would appreciate it. I just want to create a dirt simple application to make things easy to browse with just arrows and enter/back button navigation. Connecting to the media server is the problem. I could easily just network shared folders, but that's not what I want.
