Not without going down the modding route. The 'out of the box' feature is using the 360 as a media centre to stream video from a PC.

If you have media centre on your pc, you can watch nearly any video formats over the network, even ones that aren't supposed to be compatible by using a program called Transcode 360.

The 360 can play WMV files and WMV-HD files over the network or when burnt to disk.

There is a work aorund using Windows Media Player 11, but I'm not sure what it is, but a google search should come up with the info you require.

Microsoft have recently updated the xbox and some of the features.... Now you can stream any film from your PC library within Windows Media 11.

Therefore as long as the film is in a format that media player can use and that it is shared in the media player library you can play it.....

All browsing through your library is done via your xbox aswell so no running backwards and forwards to PC.

Great function no need for Windows Media PC anymore....
