xbox one x directplay and 4k
Hi, i am planning to buy an xbox one x instead of building a dedicated htpc box that will run plex as a player in my living room.
I have a couple of questions:
- will mkv encoded in mp4 or hevc 1080p be direct played by the xbox one x? or will transcoding happen? 95% of my movies are in mp4 in mkv format.
- Will xbox one direct play my hevc 4k movies directly? or will transcoding happen?
- is plex buttery smooth in xbox one? i haven't owned one and I am used to playing plex in a local windows pc, which is buttery smooth.
