A step by step guide on how to set up Xbox One streaming on Windows 10 PCs and tablets.
I'm just curious, but why is it that ppl want to do this? I would understand if they said that they are going to make every Xbox exclusive a release for Windows 10, and have options that a good rig would provide. But what are the reasons or advantages to streaming to Windows 10? So, you can play on a monitor, or so you don't have to move the console? If this world on mobile devices that ran Win 10, then that would be awesome, like remote play.
Well I used it to play eso on my tv by hooking up my laptop to it via hdmi (I usually play on a monitor across the room). Also this could be used with surfaces so you could probably do the same thing I did with a surface on a different tv in another room. I could also see this maybe hitting windows phone but that I'm not too sure on that one. So maybe you want to play Xbox games in the front room but your Xbox is in your room so then you just use your laptop, desktop, or surface. Just think of how PS tv works with the ps4.
You can stream to any platform that is running Win 10, streaming to Windows Phones coming a bit later https://www.youtube.com/wat...
In the video you linked, it is possible to see the latency of streaming between XO and Windows... it is FANtastically good. As I said back when Microsoft first showed XO to Oculus streaming support, I think it is only a matter of time before they get Oculus head-tracking to work with XO streams for "full VR" of XO games streamed to Oculus. Everyone mocking the "virtual theater" support appeared clueless, as if they're all casuals that can't put 2 and 2 together for realizing what Microsoft is 4. LANs talk at around 1ms, and I think that enables streaming to be low enough latency for VR. I expect Microsoft will definitely try making that work; however, I don't think it is guaranteed they will release "full VR" streaming of XO to Oculus... the user experience will have to be good enough, though I think the potential is there. I expect amazing things when two of the wealthiest companies in the world work together on VR... I expect better than what Sony can do, especially with Carmack on their team plus their partnership with Valve VR.
My Xbox One is in my family room. I stream to the laptop I have connected to my bedroom TV, so I'm not tied to one room. It works, works ridiculously well and is hella convenient. That said, it's technically just wireless mirroring the Xbox One's display. When I'm streaming, no one can watch TV unless I disconnect the cable box from the One. That, imho, will have to change in order for it to truly matter.
yeah that is something that needs to happen. Personally I'm the only one who uses my xbox one but if that situation arise I'd like that mechanic to be in place just for that time.
