i am running windows xp media centre edition 2005 on a toshiba qosmio f20.
recently bought an xbox 360 and started using the file sharing functionality of media centre.
couldn't play xvid / divx encoded media so decided to upgrade to media player 11 which encodes the media on the fly and includes the file sharing functionality required to work with xbox 360.
unfortunately, media player 11 uses windows media format runtime 11 which seems to cause the repetive message 'media centre receiver services has encountered a problem and needs to close.....' to appear on screen every 10 secs.
i uninstalled wmp11 and the runtime environment that came with it and all went back to normal, except i couldn't share xvid/divx with xbox.
tried using zune too but this also uses media format 11 which brough the annoying error message back.
can anyone tell me how i can use wmp11 without getting this error message? i can't understand why it's happening.
alternatively, is there another media player that doesn't use media format runtime 11 but will allow me to share my xvid / divx with my 360?
thanks guys... this driving me potty i'm totally wet behind the ears with this stuff.
