Streaming Music, etc. in WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone:  I've been setting up my WHS and was wondering if there is a performance difference in setting the shared music, video, etc folder for streaming vs. just pointing clients to that folder to play files.  I am not super technical, so I guess I was wondering if there's an appreciable difference between the two.  Thanks in advance for any insight on this.

  • Data flow appears at about same speed doing it either way.  Like wise in performance.

  • In my case I am streaming to an Xbox 360, which isn't possible unless you are using Media Connect.

    I would think however, if you are talking about streaming PC-to-PC, there would be no difference in performance whether you are streaming or just connecting directly to a shared folder over your network.
