How to Play 4K Movie with Xbox One
How to Play 4K Movie with Xbox One is to what degree the console actually supports 4K content. We know that the 4K video and gaming support is the most headline-grabbing new feature of Xbox One. However, although Xbox One supports 4K movie streaming, there’s video format/codec incompatibility problem. Currently, 4K content could presumably use either H.264 or H.265 for encoding, while Xbox One probably won’t support H.265. Moreover, even if it supports H.264, the video format problem remains: today, most of 4K movies are recorded in MXF/RAW/XAVC, etc. format which the Xbox One does not support.
To solve the Xbox One 4K streaming problem and freely play 4K movie with Xbox One, the best solution is to convert 4K video to Xbox One most friendly MPEG-4 H.264 format. And for this, a third-party 4K Video Converter app is needed. Here I will show you how to conduct the conversion using Doremisoft’s software.
Note: Right now this 4K Video Converter is capable of converting almost any 4K video (except H.265) to Xbox One accepted format, but it will support converting H.265 video very soon.
Step 1: Load the Source 4K Video to the App
Before the conversion start, you should click the download button above to download and install the converter. After that, run the program and then drag and drop the source 4K videos onto the main interface of the program. You can add multiple files into the converter at one time, and batch conversion is available.
Step 2: Choose HD MPEG-4 as the Output Video Format
If you want to smoothly play 4K movie with Xbox One with original video quality kept, you need to follow “Convert to” > “HD Video” > “HD MPEG-4 AVC/H.264(*.mp4)” to set the output format. H.264 MPEG-4 fits Xbox One the most.
Step 3: Launch the Conversion
You can also modify the detailed video/audio settings or edit the source video before converting. Thereafter, press the big button on the lower right to start to convert 4K Video to Xbox One. Wait a while and then the conversion will be finished perfectly. After that, you can transfer and enjoy the converted 4K movie with Xbox One freely!
