Best way to watch mkv and vob on lcd
I have an xbox 360 and a laptop. The laptop doesnt have a dvi ouput, but it has a vga.
To connect my laptop to my tv I was considering getting a vga-vga. The tv has 2 mono inputs for the sound.
I have been decoding the mkvs to mp4, but not all files decode successfully to be streamed by the 360. I want to know what would be the best options to watch mkv and vob on the tv.
I have heard of vlc 360 and tversity, but are they able to stream all types of files to through the xbox 360?
The second option I am considering is getting vga-vga and an audio cables connecting from my laptop to the 2 mono inputs on the tv.
Are there any other better options?
I may still consider getting cables to connect my laptop to the tv just to check out gaming on the larger screen. Since I am a complete noob, which cables should I get from monoprice to make it work? (There are too many different types of vga and audio cables)
