  1. Netflix party mode

    Several years ago there was an amazing feature for netflix... Party mode. This feature was torn from our grasp without notice and left a void in my heart that only it could fill back up. Please bring it back.

  3. Replace non-standard keyboards like YouTube/Netflix with the Xbox on-screen keyboard

    Redesign the typing system on Youtube and Netflix. Make it like the way you would type to send a message. This would make typing faster

    [Mod edit: This idea was merged with similar posts from Jean Choukroun* and XeneoWho+. Thanks, everyone!]

    [Mod edit: The title of this post was changed from "Redesign the typing system on apps like Youtube/Netflix."]

    [Mod edit: This idea suggests creating on-screen keyboard uniformity across a number of apps, with Netflix and YouTube acting as primary examples.]

  4. Add Video Resolution Selection option for YouTube please

    This will be really useful for both those who have data capped Internet Access and those with unlimited access who will always prefer to stream in HD

  5. BluRay Title Card On Dashboard

    When a BluRay Disc in in the drive the BluRay app Shows up, it would be better if it would just show the Title of the movie and maybe the cover art/stock art for the movie. The title and image could be pulled from the disc itself or from Xbox Video. This feature would make it easier to tell what disc is in the drive if it's a BluRay. This could also possibly be extended to dvds.

  6. Media Extender

    Live tv is great but some of us actually use a Microsoft product for our live and recorded tv needs. The xbox 360 was the best media center extender but we want it on the xbox one also. Please give us media center extender capabilities

  7. Snap Center: Press LB or RB to adjust Volume Balance

    The new Snap Center has a "Press X to Record That" prompt, which gave me an idea:

    I'd like to be able to adjust the Sound Mixer slider from within the Snap Center by pressing LB and RB.

    This will allow users to adjust the volume balance between main and snapped games/apps without having to launch the Settings app.

  8. Bring Sky Go to Xbox One

    The Xbox 360 has loads of entertainment applications whereas the Xbox one has only a few, my favourite was sky go and being able to go into a party while watching your shows would be great too!

  11. App for YouTube Gaming on Xbox One

    App for the YouTube Gaming on XONE - similiar to YouTube app who already exist and are avaiable for XONE. YouTube Gaming is a new service of Games videos only. It is perfect to see on XONE.

    [Mod edit: This idea was merged with a similar post from Viizion ToZe, who specifies that the app should be usable for broadcasting to YouTube as well.]

  13. Unify the media apps on xbox one

    Now that we have DLNA, USB playback support coming I am wondering if maybe its time that we get a unified app for all this media!

    Heres why.
    We have Xbox Video for our digital media, we have Xbox music for again our digital media, we now have the Media App (which tbh looks really plain going by the video preview currently out) and we have the blu-ray player for are physical media then last theres the audio CD player.
    I think the team should look into incorporating them into fewer apps!

    E.g, Xbox Video should have the Video support…

  14. Add the VLC multimedia app

    The VLC multimedia app is already available in the Windows Store. That's a killer app that allows to read tons of video and audio formats. it would be great to propose it on Xbox One.

  15. Netflix needs to be added to OneGuide

    Xbox OneGuide is by far one of the most amazing features about Xbox One that I enjoy. All my media in the right spot. Except for my Netflix addiction, it doesn't populate into the one-guide.

    I am not sure if this is the developers at Netflix holding back or something they didn't want to explore, but I feel that some pressure needs to be added on this.

    I'd like to see my Netflix 'my list' appear in the one guide, as well as perhaps popular movies / tv shows have their own lists show up on one-guide from Netflix.

    One…

  16. New movie party for all movie and tv apps, not just netflix

    Please bring movie party back and better for more than just netflix. Every movie or tv app should have the movie party feature. We have friends all around the world and would like to experience great videos at the same time. From anime to movies to tv, bringing movie party back is not only another app sony won't have but shows why xbox is the best place for social entertainment.

    Many of us could have watched E3 in the movie party theater or the next big hit on hbo go like game of thrones. Such a under rated feature with…

  17. Windows Media Center for Xbox One

    Bring the full application to the Xbox One

    Holds more potential

    The Xbox one can extend Windows Media Center to other devices instead of just being the extender like the Xbox 360. Because now the Xbox one haves a TV tuner. Then someone for instance can be on the Xbox 360 streaming live TV off my Xbox one while I'm playing the game on my Xbox one.
    Just like the SmartGlass but on a bigger TV and maybe even stream my movies, music, and pictures off my external Hard drive from my Xbox one.

    Even my Surface pro 3 can…

  18. Video 4K Playback Support

    Microsoft it would be awesome if you could provide a hardware and/or software that will allow for 4k Support via online streaming services and later down the line 4k Blu-Ray support. A course the 4k Blu-Ray player support would be via a hardware update to the built-in Disc drive.

  19. DirecTV Now streaming app (NEW)

    Please add the just released (30 Nov 16) 'DirectTV Now' streaming app. This new app is one of the new 'skinny bundle' OTT 'cord cutter' apps to bring a form of cable TV over the internet. Similar to Sling TV and Playstation Vue. (DirecTV Now has nothing to do with the satellite TV service by the same company) It would be nice to use this within the XBox interface instead of having to turn to Apple TV or other devices.

  20. Increased bitrate for media

    Hello,

    So I have a plex server at home, ts469L which has a very tiny intel atom processor, which cannot do much transcoding.

    I purchased the xbox one to be a media player as well as a gaming console for my main TV.
    I know DTS is in the works, however many of my MKV files are very large rips of my blu ray collection.
    A typical film is about 15GB +
    The problem is the xbox one has a bitrate limit of 20mbps or 2MB!
    This is minuscule and there is no way a good 1080p film or tv…
