Xbox console streaming reddit

Xbox console streaming reddit DEFAULT

Reddit users have found ways to increase their Xbox to PC streaming quality in the past, but one Reddit user, kaczorws, recently compiled the directions and provided the Xbox App mod script to do it.

The full thread can be read here, but I&#;ll list the directions below and summarize the gist of it. I highly recommend reading the full post on Reddit as it provides more details into the process. Note: It appears the only way to stream with higher bitrates is through the use of a LAN cable connection.

Essentially, the bitrate when streaming peaks at around 25mbps, with an average of mbps. With the modifications that kaczorws provided, they found that they can reach bitrates of 60mbps. Unfortunately, this is still a little too much for an Xbox to handle. Kaczorws discovered after some testing that you can maintain a bitrate of mbps without running into any errors and still make it look better than the default Very High settings.

Tweaking some values in the settings.json file will yield higher bitrates. The default is set to 12,, but changing it to 70,,, for example, gives bitrates between mbps. The following are directions on how to attain this:

Xbox App Mod Script

https://github.com/kaczorws/xboxappmod

(Direct link to download: https://github.com/kaczorws/xboxappmod/releases/tag/v)

This script (written in PowerShell) does the following:

  1. Modifies the Windows hosts file to prevent downloading latest version of Xbox App config by Xbox App (makes a backup first)
  2. Modifies the actual Xbox App config file (makes a backup first)
  3. Launches Xbox App and waits for the process to end (you can actually start playing at this step 🙂 )
  4. Once Xbox App is closed, reverts the changes of hosts file and config file (by restoring backup files)

Xbox App config file (settings.json) values are modified within Very High profile settings (GAME_STREAMING_VERY_HIGH_QUALITY_SETTINGS).

Script uses its own config file (config.xml) so you may customize its values which will then be applied to hosts file and Xbox App config file.

Please refer to the Readme file of the script on how it works, prerequisites etc.

The most important things:

  1. Download the script
  2. Modify config.xml with desired values (I would leave default &#;Quality&#; and &#;Resolution&#; and only change the &#;Framerate&#; to correct one but feel free to experiment on your own &#; just remember to monitor the bitrate)
  3. Set Windows Execution Policy to Unrestricted (see &#;Prerequisites&#; section of Readme file)
  4. Run &#;start.bat&#; file.
  5. When streaming starts, remember to change to &#;Very High&#; profile.
  6. Enjoy Xbox streaming in better quality! 🙂

This only applies to connections between the Xbox and my TV.  The problem is the streaming to a remote computer.  MY TV display is fine.

Might be something with the way your Xbox One X and computer and interacting with one another. Have you reached out to Microsoft support directly in regards to the issue? That may be your best bet.

This is most likely a problem with a preview update. Some users have had the problem be fixed after a power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) one or a few times.

Another solution would be to leave the insiders program (via opting out in the preview app) and wait until your xbox gets the public update back to see if that fixed it.

For further support on the xbox insiders program please make a thread on the official subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxinsiders/

If this isn't a preview update issue I have no idea. You could try the Xbox (beta) app from the store to see if it's the app's problem.

Hi i had the same issues, the issues i had was i didn’t have my tv switch on at the plug socket, i think its because the xbox is saved at its 4k or p tv resolution and something to do with the tv not being pluged on so im assuming its do to with the hdmi not getting power. 

So just try having your tv plugged in, doesnt have to be on just as long as the tv is getting power, which should solve this issues, i know its werid since your streaming it and it shouldnt need it but rememeber that your are bascially just streaming a picture of your tv screen

I know this is somewhat older, but I had the same issue. I found a solution that worked for me from Reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/xboxone/comments/3jf/tech_low_resolution_while_streaming_on_very_high/cun7obo?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x

Go into Xbox One display settings and take it off Auto/Auto. Change it to the proper output and resolution for your TV (ex. HDMI, p). Restart game streaming and it will be fixed.

To add to this, the option is in Settings -> Display -> Video Fidelity and Overscan -> Change from Auto to HDMI or DVI. This let me select my p resolution.

Microsoft is officially launching its xCloud gaming service today on Android phones and tablets, allowing you to play more than genuine Xbox games on devices that could never run those games themselves — because they’ll be streaming from remote servers much like a YouTube video.

But to do that, you’ll need to pay for an Xbox Game Pass subscription. And not just any Game Pass will do — you’ll need the highest-tier, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which costs $, £ or € a month (though you can pay $1 for a one-month trial).

You might be thinking that’s a lot of money! You might also be wondering, ‘What do the other two Microsoft Game Pass subscriptions offer?’ Because Game Pass is about a lot more than xCloud, it can be one of the least expensive ways to play new Microsoft games, giving you an all-you-can-eat catalog of downloadable titles.

And seeing how Xbox Game Pass for PC is about to double its base price, and both Ultimate and PC versions are about to add EA Play games at no extra cost, this seems like a good time to break it all down.

Here’s the basics in one chart:

Xbox Game Pass comparison

CategoriesXbox Game Pass UltimateXbox Game PassXbox Game Pass for PC
PlatformPC/XboxXboxPC
Games included+ games+ games+ games
Xbox Live GoldYesNoNo
xCloudYesNoNo
EA PlayYesNo Yes
Monthly price$/£/€$/£/€$/£/€

But a simpler way of putting it is that Game Pass and Game Pass for PC are basically just about getting you a growing, on-demand library of downloadable games for your Xbox console or Windows PC respectively — including much newer games than you might think — whereas Game Pass Ultimate gives you both of those subscriptions plus xCloud and all the additional free games, discounts, and online multiplayer that an Xbox Live Gold subscription typically provides.

If you’ve only got a Windows PC, there’s not much reason to buy Ultimate unless you really, really want to try xCloud on your Android phone. (Even then, you might want to hold off until xCloud comes to PC as well.) But for $ a month, the normal Xbox Game Pass for PC already includes access to over PC games, including brand-new titles like Microsoft Flight Simulator. With each of these subscriptions, Microsoft has promised all its new first-party titles will be there at launch. The PC version will also come with EA Play titles later this year.

If you’ve got Windows and Xbox, Ultimate might make more sense so you can play games on both platforms, of course.

But even if you’re just an Xbox console gamer who plays online multiplayer with friends, the Ultimate subscription is tempting for just $5 more than the standard Game Pass — because that’s how much you’d pay for multiplayer anyhow over the course of a 1-year Xbox Live Gold subscription ($60 a year, aka $5 per month for 12 months).

Gold is included with Ultimate for free — and you’d get to try xCloud on your Android phone for free as well.

Plus, Gold comes with additional free games each month that you can keep as long as you’re subscribed, and additional discounts. It’s a heck of a bundle, as long as you’re the kind of person who doesn’t feel the need to own your games in perpetuity, and it seems like it’s going to be a big part of Microsoft’s Xbox strategy going forward — practically every game announced for the Xbox Series X and Series S will appear on Game Pass as well.

Either way, what you’re primarily paying for with Game Pass is that all-you-can-eat catalog, so it’s important to know if it has the games you’d actually want to play. So I suggest you browse Microsoft’s full game lists for PC and console right here.

Xbox Series X: everything we know about Microsoft’s next console

View all 19 stories Sours: https://www.theverge.com//9/15//xbox-game-pass-versions-tier-ultimate-pc-console-explainer

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were the first home consoles to feature the ability to stream directly from the console itself. Having that functionality is great, as it lowers the barrier dramatically for those interested in trying their hand at streaming. That being said, console streamers are at a distinct disadvantage from those who have their consoles connected through a PC.

With a PC, console streamers get access to all of the bells and whistles that viewers expect, from some semblance of an overlay, to on-screen notifications, to multiple scenes, When streaming from a console, you&#;re stuck with the limited options you have for microphones, cameras, and overlays. Microsoft got better as the generation went on, as they added support for different cameras and allowing for custom overlays through Lightstream Studio. However, that feature seems to have gone by the wayside as part of Mixer shutting down.

In particular, that PlayStation 4 streaming template can be a death sentence. I think when viewers see that default PS4 streaming overlay as they browse through Twitch, their first impression is that this is a &#;lesser&#; stream, even if you might be the most charismatic person in the universe.

Streaming from a console is totally fine for practice. But if you really want your channel to grow at this juncture, you&#;re in a much better position to do so by capturing your gameplay through a PC. Will this change as we transition into the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5?

One nugget of hope comes from the new PlayStation 5 HD Camera. The most interesting new feature here for streamers is that it comes with background removal tools. Presumably, this would allow the gameplay to stretch out to full-width, allowing the streamer to place themselves over-top of the action. Depending on how this is executed, it could go a long way towards making a console stream more competitive in terms of presentation compared to those using a PC.

More streamer-friendly features will inevitably make their way to these consoles. But will it be enough? I hope so, but I wouldn&#;t count on it.

By virtue of Sony having their own proprietary camera, it probably also means that Sony will continue to lock out any other camera options. Even if it&#;s the best webcam, it still won&#;t hit the quality ceiling of a DSLR or mirrorless camera. Furthermore, I don&#;t see them building in support for multiple cameras, which is something that I and many other streamers leverage to bring viewers closer to the action.

I&#;m also concerned about the level of customization that these consoles will offer. Microsoft was closer to offering a fully-featured streaming tool through Lightstream, but that&#;s essentially up in smoke now that they&#;ve sold Mixer off to Facebook. I have a hard time seeing Sony providing streamers with the tools to meet a base level of quality. For example, do you think Sony will build in the ability for streamers to set up multiple scenes, such as a gameplay screen and an intermission screen where the camera takes center stage? Will they allow custom background music? Custom stinger transitions? Will it support external tools like a Stream Deck or other device to control scenes? Can I place my camera feed anywhere I want?

Will Sony and Microsoft allow me to set up my stream so that viewers can take black and white screenshots with randomized captions that lead to hilarious moments like this? Okay, this last one is a reach, but it&#;s almost certain that console streaming won&#;t give you this level of control.

Until proven otherwise, I think that streaming off the console will continue to be great as a starting point. But for those who really want to take this seriously, you&#;re probably going to have to graduate out of those closed ecosystems. Even streaming with a bad PC could be better than directly from the new consoles by virtue of your stream not looking like the default layout provided by Sony or Microsoft.

If you have ambitions of streaming seriously, don&#;t wait for the next generation of consoles and rely on whatever solution they&#;ve built into those boxes. Start now. Start with what you&#;ve got, even if that means investing in a capture card and leveraging an under-powered PC. You will put yourself in a much better position to grow tomorrow if you work with tools that give you full control.

Streaming reddit console xbox

Congratulations! You and your PlayStation 5 are ready to start creating content on Twitch. Thanks to the Create button on your DualSense wireless controller it&#;s now faster than ever to start up a stream from the comfort of your console. The guide below will show you how to set up a Twitch account and how to adjust some of your Twitch settings, as well as how to go live on Twitch from your PS5.

While many streamers choose to start streaming with a laptop or computer, the good news is that for most gamers, you have everything you need to start streaming already in your living room. If you’ve got a PlayStation 5 console, you can be live on Twitch in just a few simple steps*.

1. Create a Twitch account from a mobile device or computer. We recommend downloading Twitch on your iOS or Android phone to adjust your stream settings on the fly, which is easy to do with your Stream Manager in the Twitch app.

2. Personalize your channel so viewers know who you are when they discover your page! You can modify your profile photo and bio on mobile, or customize a number of additional settings via a web browser. We’ve set up an entire Creator Camp page on Personal Branding to show you all of the places you can customize your channel page to reflect you and your brand.

3. Before you start streaming, we recommend that you log in to your Twitch account from a web browser so you can establish your Moderation and Safety settings to ensure the experience for your growing community is positive. AutoMod is a great tool to serve as your first line of defense for moderation because it will detect messages in chat that have been flagged as inappropriate and block them from appearing until you or a moderator review and approve. You can also update your settings to include a custom list of words or phrases to filter from your channel automatically.

Twitch on PS5

Streaming from the PlayStation 5 console

1. First, you’ll need to link your Twitch account to PlayStation Network by following the directions on your screen and scanning the QR code, or inputting the code provided to twitch.tv/activate. If you already linked your PlayStation Network and Twitch accounts on PS4, you’ll be able to migrate that to PS5 during this process. Keep in mind that two-factor authentication is required to stream from your PS5, even if you migrate your linked PlayStation Network & Twitch accounts. 

2. While playing a game, press the Create button on your controller and then select Broadcast from the Create options, and select Twitch. You can also select Broadcast from your customized Control Center. Players can use the DualSense controller mic for broadcast audio as well. 

3. Give your stream a title, add in your PlayStation 5 HD Camera if available, customize your overlay position, and more. You can also choose your video quality options from the Capture and Broadcasts section of the System menu. 

Tip: You will automatically be placed in the game category for the game you’re playing. For maximum searchability and follower engagement, we recommend using the Twitch iOS or Android app so you can select a custom go-live notification and add in additional tags.

4. Click Go Live and you’re now streaming!

5. To stop streaming, press the Create button on your controller, select Broadcast from the Create options, and then select Stop Broadcasting. You can also press the PlayStation button to stop broadcasting via the Control Center or Broadcast card. Alternatively, you can select Pause Broadcast via the Create options to take a break. 

To increase the quality of your streams, we recommend ensuring upgraded audio and visuals. The quality of your audio is critical in helping you connect with viewers. If you’re interested in inviting viewers to see your reactions while playing, you’ll need to purchase the PlayStation 5 HD Camera.


This guide is just the beginning of your Twitch journey and we’re so glad to see you on your way! Your path as a content creator is unique, whether you’re streaming on Twitch as a hobby or wanting to make it a career. There is no pressure to plan the perfect stream. Take your time and have as much fun as you can while sharing your next-generation PlayStation 5 experience with your community and the world.

How To Make Sure Your Xbox One is Ready for Project xCloud Console Streaming - Xbox Update

The Xbox App for Windows 10 PCs will now let players stream console games on their computer, thanks to an update that went live on Tuesday.

The game streaming that the update enables will let Xbox Game Pass subscribers play games that their PCs otherwise might not have the specs to handle. According to Microsoft, playing games directly from an Xbox console with Remote Play will provide the smoothest experience, while using the cloud will be slightly more taxing, but won’t require a download.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers are currently able to stream games in browsers from their phones, tablets, and PCs, but the new option will allow streaming directly into the Windows 10 Xbox App. One thing that isn’t available yet is streaming games directly to Xbox Series X consoles, but Microsoft says that feature’s on the way later this year.

The cloud option is limited to titles on Xbox Game Pass. Other games that players own may be streamed using Remote Play, because the game is running on the console.

To stream games to the Xbox App from the cloud, players just need a compatible controller and an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. Otherwise the Remote Play option is available through the Xbox App on Windows 10 PCs.
