    Nope - just have to make sure your shared drives are set up - and xbmc plays almost every format out there - check their site out - the support forum has a ios section

    You could try installing a program like tversity on your pc. I use it to stream to many different devices without issue.

    I know whats causing the problem. My pc isnt allowing the other networked devices to read its files.
    I figured this out when i tried to access the file from my brothers laptop. My home pc is running windows xp.

    Can some explain to me how to set up file sharing so that anyone on the network can access my files. Im not worried about security...
