Default Microsoft Gives the Xbox 360 Some Zune Love

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.xbox.com/en-US/community/personality/elle/20061030-update.htm' target='_blank'>http://www.xbox.com/en-US/community/personality/elle/20061030-update.htm</a><br /><br /></div><em>&quot;Part of the change to the streaming story is the addition of Windows Media Player 11 and Zune&trade; as supported PC streaming software. If you install WMP 11 or Zune, it takes over for Windows Media Connect, and you manage connections from within the player itself (look for Media Sharing in WMP 11 or the Zune software). You can, of course, continue to use Windows Media Connect if you don't install WMP 11 or Zune.&quot;</em><br /><br /><img alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/zt/2006/xbox360-oct27.jpg" /><br /><br />Yesterday's Fall Dashboard update for the Xbox 360 added many new features - among them, support for Zune. With the update in place, the Zune software (or Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Media Connect) allows you to stream content from your Windows XP-based or Windows Vista-based PC to any Xbox 360. The upside here is that you no longer need a Media Center PC, which was originally a requirement when the Xbox 360 launched late last year. In addition, the Dashboard update allows you to stream music, pictures, and video (we're assuming wirelessly) directly from your Zune to an Xbox 360. The moment Zune launches (and the moment we can get our hands on one), we'll show you how the Xbox 360 and Zune add up.
