    Hi guys,

    I have a Windows 7 RC1 64 bit laptop with media player 12 and a XP Pro SP3 32 bit PC with media player 11.

    I have set WMP11 on the PC to share it's media and its library shows up on WMP12 on laptop under "other libraries". So far so good.

    I have WMP12 media streaming turned on but when I go to "more streaming options" the PC does not show up in the devices list and the laptops library does not show up in WMP11 on PC.

    I've read a lot about media sharing but haven't actually seen it specifically stated that this functionality is supported i.e. using WMP11 on XP to access shared media on WMP12 on Windows 7.

    Have I done something wrong or is this not supported?

    Can anyone with a similar setup see if they can get this to work?

    Regards

    Renoir
