Despite that Xbox One is a beast of a games console which is capable of running beautiful games, it can also serve as a media player which runs on your high-definition TV and also have classified the device as an “all-in-one entertainment system”. Sounds great to play iTunes movies and TV shows on Xbox One, but that is not the case, because the videos we get from the iTunes store are Fairplay DRM protected. This means that you cannot stream your iTunes library to your Xbox One.

However, just with a DRM Removal and Conversion tool, you can freely transfer iTunes video to Xbox One.

3. How to Stream videos to Xbox One via DLNA?

There is no doubt that Xbox One users want to play music/videos off external hard drives and USB flash drives. Unfortunately, this feature is not currently supported on the Xbox One. We are not sure if videos/music playback from the USB port could be updated later, hopefully Microsoft will do. However, the Xbox One is DLNA compatible and will play CDs on launch day.

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a nonprofit collaborative trade organization established by Sony in June 2003 that is responsible for defining interoperability guidelines to enable sharing of digital media between multimedia devices. Basically, through DLNA, you can easily stream media from PC to Xbox One. Below is the step-by-step instruction you may find useful.

Step 1. Check out your PC network settings and make sure your PC and the Xbox One are on the same network.

Step 2. Go to your Xbox One, click on “Settings”. From there, you may hit on “Preferences” and make sure the “Play To” option is selected.

Step 3. Make sure you have added the Xbox One to the PC. To do this, you may go to your PC, move to “Control Panel”, and click on “Add a Device” button under “Devices and Printers”. After that, your Xbox One will appear in “Multimedia Devices” which means now your console will show up as an option to “Play To”.

Step 4. Now you can start streaming content from PC to Xbox One. Simply go to your PC, find the video/song you want to watch on the Xbox One, right click on it and select “Play To” option, there you should be able to find the Xbox One among the list. Done.
