Better integrated DLNA Support

It's troublesome to "play to" media files from my PC. A full DLNA menu support system would be most helpful!

[Mod Edit: This idea has been merged with similar ideas posted by Jdee, chillzATL, Ancient Weapon, and Dragon Skyblaze. AW also suggested controlling said media content through the One Guide. Thanks everyone!]

    @gindybreadman10: Agreed. The DLNA server of the X1 is very unstable. When using Play To on Windows to push a video to the box, it crashes quite often. Also, the DLNA client to use with Universal Media Server or other DLNA servers on PC is only started when running the MediaPlayer app.

    Microsoft should partner with Plex to use its metadata for all movies stored on NAS. Also they should put all of the digital movies owned with other services like Ultraviolet, Vudu, Amazon, YouTube. And allow us to pin a shortcut called my movies or whatever to the dash. so we can browse our entire digital collection via the Plex UI from the dashboard. Do the same for Music. Just set it up by putting in the user/pass for all the services you use and have them all in one app.

    XB1 does not at all see my Qnap NAS and yet any other DLNA compliant device on my network does. Come on Microsoft, this is simply sad that you cannot provide better DLNA support. You claim that this is "completed" yet there are still several DLNA features you failed to implement to make the XBox the true "media hub" you claim it to be. I'm sorry but having my PC on to "Play to Xbox" completely defeats the purpose of having a DLNA compliant NAS that one manufacturer chooses to ignore. Fix this.

    How do we not have this feature yet? The XBOX One is suppose to be the media gateway!

  • gingybreadman10gingybreadman10 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This feature is rubbish, I'm still using PS3\Universal media server to play my files but even then the xbox dlna doesn't see it every time! :-( Guess we'll see in the next update lol

    For this to be like the full DLNA of the Xbox 360, it needs be integrated into the system and run in the background so you can play music through any game instead of game music. Not having to snap an app and take up screen space to play music!

    Still issues with mkv. No preview while scrolling. Somewhat flakey when it does play. Needs more work but an improvement so far

  • Ganon255Ganon255 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I completely agree, the UI is terrible. I have about 2000 albums and it's a nightmare to navigate.

  • QuaiChangPainQuaiChangPain commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    How is this marked 'completed'??!! The media player app won't load my entire library, and what little I can get it to load is unnavigable... Just endless scrolling. Did they even test this on a large music library? Was this just designed to handle 20 ripped CDs?

    Cant play mkv from usb and still have the mediaplayer preview app in store available

  • InitialD DriverInitialD Driver commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Why cant it snap i see no issue if the 360 could play music and games together why the XBOne cannot? Please add a snap feature to the system media player app.

    I appear to have lost "Play To" functionality, presumably as part of the switch to the media player app. Please get this back working with Win8, it's a great feature.

  • IdenticalLennyIdenticalLenny commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    i tried the media player app through USB and i noticed when i fast forward in a video it didn´t create screenshots like on the 360 system video player so i know when to stop fast forward in the video

    Please make it happen when it releases with DLNA

    Thank you
