How to further increase the quality of Xbox One video streaming beyond very high settings

Cómo aumentar aún más la calidad del streaming de vídeo de Xbox One más allá de la configuración muy alta 3

The Xbox One application Windows 10 lets you stream Xbox One content, such as games, to your Windows 10 computer. This is especially useful when you want to watch a movie or play games while the TV is busy. The Xbox application offers three types of video streaming options, including low, medium and very high quality. This may change depending on the router hardware and network settings.

That being said, it seems The Xbox app is able to run better than that. You can stream PC games at higher bit rates than the very high quality setting normally allows. They can reach up to 60 Mbps compared to 15-20 Mbps normally. That being said, there are many games that have framerate @ 30 FPS and using this tip you can get the best quality.

Increase the quality of your Xbox One video stream beyond very high settings

An Xbox player, kaczorws, found this solution and posted it on Reddit. He has built an Xbox App script that does this for you. The script is written in PowerShell, and the source code is also hosted on GitHub. This is what it does:

  1. Modify the Windows hosts file to prevent the latest Xbox version set by the Xbox application from being downloaded (please back it up first)

  2. Modify the Xbox application configuration file (backup first)

  3. Launch the Xbox app and wait for the process to complete ( you can start playing in this step )

  4. After closing the Xbox application, return to the changes in the host file and the configuration file (restore the backup files)

  5. .

Note: The settings in the Xbox settings file (settings.json) are changed in Very high profile settings (GAME_STREAMING_VERY_HIGH_QUALITY_SETTINGS).

The script uses its own configuration file ( config.xml ) so that you can customize their settings, which will then be applied to the host configuration file and the Xbox App configuration file.

Prerequisites for high-speed network configuration files

  • Make sure you’re signed in to your Xbox Live / Microsoft account in the Xbox application and that you’ve used PC streaming at least once

  • .

  • Change the Windows script execution policy:

    • Open PowerShell * as administrator *

  • Run the «start.bat» file.

  • When streaming starts, don’t forget to switch to a «Very High» profile.

This mode is very useful for games that offer 30 FPS and you can stream the same thing to your Windows 10 computer. Getting it bigger than it works for your computer will put a lot of pressure on the console. For example, if the game does not offer a maximum of 30 FPS and your setting is 60 fps, XBox will send two frames to your computer, overloading the console.
