    Stream Movies Through External Drive with June Update?


    Hi,

    With the new June update that allows attaching an external through USB 3.0, will we be able to access movies/music on external drives through the Xbox One dashboard?

    Even better would be if we could just USB straight to a PC tower and access the files from there, but at the least would I be able to transfer it from PC > HD > One so I don't have to switch imputs to allow streaming. Currently I have a tower hooked up to my
    tv for all my digital media/internets, but would like to have the xbox One everything together.

    Thanks!

    :)

    XBox One Media Player App will not pull movie album artwork through DLNA

    Has anyone found a resolution besides using PLEX to stream their collected movies through DLNA and have the XBox one pull the metadata?

    Info:

    I use a GoFlex Seagate Home 2TB to stream my media from. Artwork is included in my files as well as other information such as author, actors, year, etc.

    I have an external drive with the same movies on it and when the external is plugged through USB to the XBox, the media player app will show the movie cover, but the NAS through DLNA still does not.

    Any help or recommendations would be great, Microsoft told me that metadata cannot be provided through NAS and DLNA.

    Can XBox one search for Media Servers?

    On my PS3 I used to be able to access my external drive that was attached to my router and stream music and movies that were saved on the hard drive (on the PS3). Am I able to do the same with XBox One?

    Stream Movies Through External Drive with June Update?

    The June update only allows the storage of game files on the external storage right now. It's been said that they're still looking at supporting other media types in the future, but it's not present in the June update.

    EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE FOR XBOX ONE

    It is my understanding that once you format the drive via the Xbox One it can only be used by the One. Also the functionality of watching a movie or such from an external drive is not present as of yet. However you can use the function "Play to" with in
    Win 7/8 to stream the movie to your Xbox. There might be some caveats as to what will stream, for example .mkv's files. However the videos I have that are .wmv, .mp4 and the like stream just fine.

    Hope that helps
