GAMING CONSOLE

XBOX 360

Not all videos on VHX are available for download. If downloads are disabled on a video, watching on a TV via this route  will not work.

Once you have downloaded the video to your computer, there a few different ways to get it playing on your Xbox 360.

USB FLASH DRIVE:

  1. Find a flash drive that is large enough for the video file to fit on, and transfer the file to the Flash drive.
  2. Plug the drive in an empty USB port on the Xbox and navigate to the “TV & Movies” section.
  3. You can then select the storage device (your flash drive) and play right from there.

Streaming from computer to Xbox 360:

WINDOWS PC: Xbox and Windows make it really easy to stream right from Windows Media Center to the Xbox console. Check out their simple instructions here.
MAC: On a Mac, there is no native application that streams to Xbox, so you will need to download a third party program. We recommend Plex Media Server, which is relatively easy to use:
  1. Download & install Plex Media Server and run it.
  2. Select the folder with the downloaded video and share it with your Xbox 360.
  3. Navigate to "TV & Movies" section on the Xbox.
  4. The folder will appear under the system video player page as “Plex Media Server”.
  5. Locate the video and hit PLAY. It’s so easy!

  2. Plug the drive in one of the empty USB ports on your PS4 and navigate to the “Media Player” section.
  3. You can then select the storage device (your flash drive) and play right from there or transfer the file to your PS4’s internal hard drive.

Streaming from computer to PS3:
