The second is to stream videos from a Windows Media Center PC by using Xbox 360 as a Media Center Extender.
In this way users are in control of what videos they want to watch, however there are restrictions on what kind of video they can playback.
In system, the Xbox 360 Dashboard had the ability to have multiple profiles with password on the same console with each user being able to customize the dashboard to exactly fit their own unique style.
