Xbox One Quick Tip: How to stream video from your PC


Having trouble streaming video from your PC to your Xbox One? We can help.

While you can try to add content on your PC to its Xbox Video app equivalent, the “PlayTo” or “Cast to Device” function is much easier.

  • Start your Windows PC and navigate to the file you wish to play on your Xbox One.
  • Right-click the file and select “PlayTo” or “Cast to Device”
  • Select your Xbox One

“PlayTo” works on Windows Vista, 8, 8 and 8.1, while “Cast to Device” works on Windows 10.
