Turn On Media Streaming Before you can stream content in Windows, it is necessary that you turn on Media streaming or it might not work.

Using Control.exe Network

1. Step Hit Windows key + R on your keyboard

2. Step Copy and paste this into the field %SystemRoot%\system32\control.exe /name Microsoft.NetworkAndSharingCenter /page ShareMedia

3. Step Now you should see this:

“Media streaming is not turned on” Media streaming allows you to send your music, pictures and videos to other computers and devices on your network

Turn On Media Streaming

4. Step Click the button Turn on media streaming

5. Step Now make sure that the dropdown field for Xbox 360 says Allowed

Allow Streaming Content To Xbox 360.Jpg

There will be various other devices with streaming capabilities like your Notebook that you can also enable to stream content
