Streaming video with an Airport Express

Yesterday I removed the cable connecting my modded-xbox running Xbox Media Center to my router and instead connected the xbox to the Airport Express I use to stream music to my stereo system.

This morning when we tried to watch a Seinfeld episode while having breakfast we noticed quite unbearable delays. Every few seconds the screen would freeze for half a second or a second before continuing again. It made it impossible to watch the episode without going nuts.

I tried around a bit and some video files seem to work better than others. It probably depends on the type of encoding of the video and audio parts but I’ve failed to found any cure for the problem.

I was so happy to finally get rid of the long cable going through 2.5 rooms but tomorrow I have to put it back.
