I'm trying to stream media from my windows 7 PC to my chromebook. I followed the instructions on this page to set it up, but I'm having problems with avi files. mp4 files stream properly, but avi files are downloaded, not streamed. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Convert the avi to mp4 :)

That's what I've been doing so far, but it'd make my life a bit easier if I didn't have to...

Streaming .avi to Chromebook

Assuming your .avi files have minimal or no compression, the issue is that the required bandwidth is too high to stream them to your chromebook. Convert / compress an .avi file to .mp4 and compare the difference in the sizes of the files.
