I've got an Xbox running XBMC (media centre) and hooked up to my local
network -- I stream music and video from a Linkstation NAS (running
Debian) using Samba, although XBMC also supports DAAPD audio (aka
iTunes), UPNP video and (apparently -- haven't tried) FTP streaming too.

But if, as I suspect, you're trying to stream video to an Xbox 360, well
I just don't know.  Helpful, no?  :-)

/me ponders about whatever happened to the Indrema "Dream" console...
