Problem with sharing videos from PC via homegroup to Xbox 360. Doesn't update videos on 360.

I recently added some movies to my PC and I can't get them to show on my Xbox 360. Is there any way to force it to update/refresh?

I share videos via a Homegroup and I can't seem to find a way to make it show the movies I've added. I've tried restarting both my Xbox and PC. I've also tried opening Media Player and tried to refresh/update it that way.

I've never had this happen before. Any ideas on what to do?

Update: I have just found out that changing the file from .mp4 (original) to .avi (xbox then recognizes it) then back to .mp4 (xbox now plays it) actually seems to work. I don't understand this. This can't be what I have to do for all my movies that are failing to show up.
