  1. DLNA + Skifta Broken?


    I was up by the missing native media player, but eventually found out about the Skifta app, and was up and running as easy as pie. Then, with absolutely no change that I am aware of, Skifta stopped being able to see the Xbox One as a "player". I have uninstalled
    and reinstalled Skifta, as well as the XBone video player, with no luck. I feel like have tried everything 10 times, and restarted everything twice that amount. I'm at a complete loss, and what makes it more confusing is that nothing has changed. Unless there
    was an update I missed that broke something, but I have yet to find anyone having a similar issue.

    Also, I have double checked all settings ie. making sure PlayTo Streaming is enabled. I have also tried finding it while it was on the XBone video player, as well as starting the video player and going back to the dashboard. I'm not sure if it matter but
    I am using Plex as my server from Linux Mint 16. The server is up and running, and I can see it is running from the Plex server web app, as well as from Skifta. I just can't seem to see the XBone as a media player anymore.

    I would also like to add that I have tried several other DLNA streaming controllers, with no luck.

    Has anybody else had this issue, or does anyone have a clue as to what is going on?

    Thanks for any and all support, and I apologize if this is the wrong forum, it seemed like the best candidate.

    :)

    You can use a mobile app called skifta as a DLNA controller between your DLNA server and Xbox One.

    Well, powering it down and unplugging it for 30 seconds seemed to fix it.

    So, if you run into this problem, power down the Xbox One and unplug it for 30 seconds. Reboot and enjoy!

    Plex to Xbox One - Alternative to Skifta App

    I was wondering what quality (bitrate, resolution, audio encoding) people are using for the Skifta DLNA streaming.

    I have Plex serving DLNA and using Skifta to play videos to my Xbox One, but am having trouble finding the perfect encoding combo. I am getting a lot of stuttering with higher bitrates.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Give te XB1 the same media funtionality of the 360

    [quote user="SmokeDecky"]Skifta is good if i want to stream using a PC or Tablet or smartphone if i wanted to do that i would just watch it on either device why bother with the Xbox.[/quote]For one, a smartphone isn't a 55" TV. For another, Skifta's more
    for pairing sources to players than displaying media from a source.
    All my media is on a NAS (Buffalo Linkstation) it has its own built in DLNA server which worked brilliantly with the 360 so i didnt have to have my computer or tablet on 24 hrs a day
    in order to stream content.
    Normally tablets are "on" all the time, unless you actively shut them off. Install Skifta and use the tablet to play from the DLNA source to the Xbox One.

    Xbox One and DLNA

    The xb1 has DLNA but right now is only a Play To device. It means that you can't see your local stored media from the xb1.

    What you can do is go to your PC, choose the file you want to play and tell it to play it on the xb1 (right click the file and choose Play To).

    You can also use a smart phone or a tablet app which is called Skifta. You tell Skifta where your media is on your network, choose what you want to play and select the xb1 as the play to device. It's not ideal but right now it's the best solution.

    Hopefully MS will fix the DLNA issue soon.
