    Which is the best way to do it on the xbox one S ?
    Does the console accept NTFS or does it have to be Fat32 ?

    Thanks

    I believe the console formats it in its own format, not FAT32 nor NTFS.

    That's why when you take an Xbox formatted HD and connected it to a PC, the PC will attempt to format it.

    Well, if you're trying to streaming media content from your PC to the Xbox, then I say Cast it. Windows 10 has its own casting feature.

    Here's one old video I made about Casting from a PC to Xbox One. Old video but should still be relevant to today.



    Now, after thinking about it again, I think you can format your drive to NTFS, load up some movies on that formatted drive, and then connect that drive directly to the Xbox One. Once the Xbox detects the drive, then use Media Player app to play the movie. Try that out first and see if that helps.

    When I was mentioning the Xbox formats in its own format, that was more for game storage.

    I've been trying to clean all that mess up. Been a while since I visited here. This site used to be jumping back when the Xbox first launched and was full of members a couple of years after.

    Like you see, lots of spam and pretty much dead. Gonna try to promote the site again and hopefully get it jumping again.

    I don't own it, so there's only so much I can do.

    I understand the ONE S uses Atmos, however my TV doesn't support Atmos. Will i still get audio from games and movies >?

    Not sure. Since I use MPH never looked to see where that can be changed. I'm sure it can.

    Not even sure. Probably whatever codecs MS allows to be played.

    The xbox is very fussy with what it plays. Im guessing this is a piracy measure.
