Re: 10 Xbox 360 tricks Microsoft doesn't tell you...Interesting

Essential hacks, tricks and secrets for Microsoft's supposedly closed system

9. Play any media file, plus online videos on your Xbox 360

Free app Tversity neatly sidesteps the pointless video/audio restrictions Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo alike slap on their consoles, making them able to play any format. Again, you'll need a PC on the same network, but it's a simple matter of installing the program and having it scan the folders you keep your media in. It'll replace the standard network file-sharing system Windows uses, but behaves pretty much the same way at the 360's end. As well as that, it'll convert unsupported files on the fly – though you'll need a pretty beefy PC to do this with large video files, otherwise you'll be waiting ages. You can also add online video URLs on the PC's end – including Youtube – and then access those from the console.
Ok, I thought the iPod thing was awesome. This, by far, is one of the coolest things ever.

PKer, dude, thanks for posting this. I've done more in 1 day with my 360 than I have in the entire year I've owned it.

Any other cool stuff I'm missing out on with my 360?
