I've created some video using Handbrake on my macbook pro. I added it to my iTunes on my mac, and confirmed that it plays just fine on the mac, and also on my Apple TV2. However, when I try to play the same video on my PC, it doesn't work. It just sits and stalls iTunes.

However, when I attempt to stream a PURCHASED video (from the iTunes store), from the same mac, to the same PC, it works just fine.

I've found some reference to the problem on other forums, but, the solutions seem to not be working for me. I've tried lostify to fix the atomic parsley info (which people say is the root cause of the problem), but, no joy.

So, does anyone know how to fix video streaming via. home sharing from a mac to a pc?

Both are using iTunes10.0.1.
Windows 7
