Plex Xbox One

The Xbox One profile ensures that Plex only send the One file formats it can successfully stream. Again, unsupported formats are converted on the fly. In the logfile extract below, Plex detects the Xbox One client ensures any unsupported video is converted before being sent. I tested the Live TV feature on the Plex Xbox One app with both a powerful gaming desktop and an old productivity laptop, and the difference in quality was striking. Why Xbox One won't play H.265/HEVC files. Xbox One platform can support HEVC since Microsoft updated, Xbox One can be used for streaming videos as HEVC is supported, delivering a great end-user experience with any bit rate. But, the limitation is still existing. Only the codec of HEVC 10-bit is supported by Xbox One.

After a lot of troubleshooting, I’ve finally managed to get smooth video and audio out of Plex running via the Xbox One out to my Sony Bravia TV.

  • Plex for Xbox One v2.1.1 is now rolling out for users. NEW: Brand new audio, video, and photo players. Support for direct streaming HEVC video on the Xbox One S and Xbox One X. Support for mspeg4v2 and mspeg4v3 in mkv and avi containers and 4K vp9 support in webm containers.
  • One thought on “ Choppy Video Fix for Plex on Xbox-One and Sony TVs ” Ted April 25, 2017 at 9:00 pm. Thanks for that. I had the same Issue with plex on Xbox one connected to a Bravia. The choppiness when pannning was driving me mad, and wasn’t seeing this playing the same videos elsewhere.

My Problem(s):

  • Regardless of file format or container (both mkvs and mp4), the video output from Plex on XBox One was choppy and jittery on my TV. This was amplified during panning shots, where the camera moves across a landscape or during shots where everything on-screen was in motion.
  • Audio always seemed too quiet and not balanced properly.
  • The video problems were very noticeable on Plex, but they also seemed to affect HDMI pass-through, and even in-game video sequences.

My Set-up:

Plex Tv Xbox One

  • XBOX One loaded to the most recent beta update (March 29th, 2015 release).
  • Latest Plex app on Xbox One
  • Most up-to-date Plex Media Server: version
  • Sony Bravia TV (My model is KDL-55HX800)
  • My Xbox plugged directly into the TV via HDMI. No stereo speaker system.

Plex Xbox One Server Unavailable

The Fix(es):

  • For some reason, I had my Xbox set up to pass 5.1 signal to my TV speakers via HDMI. I fixed this in the XBOX-One settings and changed it to only pass uncompressed stereo. I also turned off optical audio. I saw a minor improvement in video, and the audio seemed “normal” again.
  • The BIG fix was to disable anything having to do with “motion” on the TV settings.
    • CineMotion: OFF
    • MotionFlow: OFF

Apparently, the XBOX-One does its own smoothing of video motion, which doesn’t mix well with what the TV tries to do, resulting in a chopping, weird, frame-skipping video output. Turning off these Sony Bravia settings fixed this issue completely for me!
