I want to watch stuff I have on my computer on my Xbox One.

Can I burn it to a flash drive and play it off the USB port on the Xbox? Is there a way to stream it over the LAN?

I have been able to stream videos from my PC to my X-Box One the same way I did it on 360. I have Windows 8 on my PC and it's on the same wired network as my consoles.

I just right clicks the file and there's an option "Play To" and then if your console is on, it should be listed.

I was hoping that I could just do it with the $500 system I just bought and not have to buy ANOTHER thing lol

I believe that the files need to be in your windows Library, like in the Video or Music folder. I could be wrong. I've been streaming for years and only just discovered the "play to" thing!
