    X1 Media Player Issue


    I'm having trouble finding the private forums for the dashboard beta. Either way, the new Media Player is incredibly choppy sometimes. Is there a reason for this? It's AVI over USB and it works just fine on my PC but the x1 has a slight stutter. Anyone else
    have this issue?

    :)

    Looking at X1 I would keep expectations low.

    I thought I could use X1 for bluray player and media player - but apps have been so buggy and simply shutting console down and things like that. Playing some media at wrong speed is another strange flaw.

    And you have no settings which are common on mediaplayers, delay to audio to make lipsync on screen are missing in X1 so far.

    So I bought a standalone bluray player to play my videos as well as commercial media like films etc.

    Media Player difficulty! Media Player doesn't recognise external hard drive, can anyone help?

    If your external HDD is partitioned for use as X1 storage, I'm fairly certain Media Player won't recognise it as a media storage device, and so won't be checking it for audio/video/image files. It'll basically be an extension of X1 storage.

    The Media Player isn't all that great. I don't think it's even complete software. It does have 'preview' in the title still. lol I can only get the X1/Media Player to detect my tablet, phone, and laptop by using Universal Media Server, a free piece of software
    that let's you organise what files can and can't be shared/streamed across devices.

    If you Google you should find a free download. But that would mean you'd have to plug your external HDD into something other than your One, and have UMS set up to find it and make streaming content to the X1's Media Player a thing. =|

    USB device unavailable HELP!!!!!

    I can verify that the media player has been crashing since I've first installed it last year when it came out. It doesn't matter what video I'm playing, or what length of time the video is, the media player will randomly crash with the message everyone that
    uses the media player to watch videos from gets: "USB device unavailable". I am a preview member so I have been sending feedback with screenshots every time this happens, which sometimes is 2-3 times on the same video.

    My USB device is a PNY 128G flash stick.

    I can't imagine you saying this isn't a wide spread issue. I would guess that statement only makes sense if you compare the number of consumers using their X1 as a video player as opposed to a gaming system. If you compare it that way then yes, its not a
    wide spread issue. But from the consumers that use the media player, this is a wide spread issue.

    I have to re-iterate Carbon's concerns in that Microsoft is not focusing on the media player issue enough. I applaud that you guys are focusing on the gaming ... and rightfully so. But what differentiates X1 from the competition is its image of being the
    "complete package". I have a friend that owns a PS3, and hasn't decided on whether he is going to get an X1 or a PS4. I can tell you that he primarily used his PS3 as a media player (Blu-ray, etc), and has been asking me what I think he should get as his entertainment
    device. He knows I've been an Xbox loyalist for a lot of years now, but I'm having a hard time knowing how to sell him on getting an X1 because of all these "entertainment" issues that we all keep experiencing. Heck, when he's over watching a movie and the
    media player crashes, it sucks when he tells me "and why should I get an X1 again?"

    I know too many people that are casual gamers, and I'm not pushing them into getting an X1 because I don't want to look like an idiot when their systems crash.
