It appears that the Xbox One has no out-of-the-box support to play one's own video files, for example by sticking them on a USB. This is in stark contrast the Xbox 360, which has an inbuilt media player app that plays a limited range of video formats.
What is the most convenient way to play video files on the Xbox one?
- Obtaining a PC or tablet running Windows 8 and use the "Stream to Xbox" function touted in reviews?
- Would you upload your files to a SkyDrive account and use the SkyDrive app on your Xbox?
- Would you use some other app?
Or is there some other clever backdoor method?
