About Xbox One

Xbox One, announced in May 2013, is the third generation of video game console from Microsoft. Like its predecessor Xbox 360, Xbox One is built from the ground up as an all-in-one entertainment hub for playing games, watching live TV, video clips, browsing photos, chatting on Skype, etc. Besides, Microsoft is also willing to underscore its intent to rule the living room by naming the new gadget as Xbox One, instead of Xbox 720. With great upgrades and improvements made to both hardware and system, Xbox One will surely bring users fantastic visual experience when playing MP4/MKV on it.

How to Play MKV/MP4 to Xbox One

It is clear that MKV can't be played directly on Xbox One as the console only supports a few video containers like AVI, MP4, WMV, MOV, no MKV. So, we should convert MKV to Xbox One initially. Although MP4 can be natively played on Xbox One, we also need to convert MP4 to Xbox One in that different MP4 files have different video codecs, and just a part of video codecs in MP4 container can be supported by Xbox One.

We once talked about converting MKV to Xbox 360 with WinX HD Video Converter Deluxe, which can help you play MP4 MKV on Xbox One with improved performances as well.

To sum up, no matter your source M2TS video is ripped off from Blu-ray Disc or AVCHD recording, one thing you need to note is that - if you want to use a stand-alone device like a HTPC, Popcorn Hour or a Western Digital player, you'll probably have better compatibility with the MKV container than M2TS.
