XBMC and the guest account

Uncle Toxie

Recommended Posts

Okay, here is the setup. I have my X-Box running XBMC and it accesses the shares on my PC. Now, when I was doing some system maintenance I noticed that the Guest account had been turned on, so I disabled it again. You know what happened next but I'll say it anyway. I could no longer access my shared media drive. Soooooo anyone out there with enough experiance to point me to the option where I can specify a username/password or do you think that I am being too paranoid and should leave the guest account alone?

Well, you can login to the share with your computer uname and password in XBMC, and shouldnt have a problem. Also you could run a streaming server app from your comp like ccXStream to directly share media only to the xbox.

Hope that helps...
