Lots of good features coming there, I bet they have some other stuff too that they're holding back as a surprise.

I hope so, but this is the feature I've been waiting for.  Anything else is icing on the cake.  :-)

I ripped all of my personal DVD's to mkv files and have been playing them on my PS3.

 

I too have ripped my personal DVD's.

That's a codec, not a file type. I'm certain it will be supported given the file types listed.

It is, well, a specific x264 profile.

I found a western digital external 1tb drive passport ultra.  Great little drive.  I think I paid $89 for it,  I found it online last week for $59 on sale.  later on i'll get another just for my xbox one and dvr.

If it's just a profile it shouldn't be an issue. Profiles are essentially just settings for the various versions of the codec.

MS finally supporting MKV. Hell just frozen.

 

Now could WMP and Explorer support it too?

My only hope now is that they have some sort of "browser" built into the Player App that makes going through movie files a pleasant experience.

The PS3 does this VERY well, even allowing you to add a 10 second video thumbnail of each file, in addition to assigning categories and names.

Fantastic. I just bought an X1 this weekend, and I was missing these media features from the 360. I have a Synology NAS that I stream all my media to 360, so this will be nice to have.

Well, from the list they have h264 avchd and then mpeg 4 h264 aac, those both should be specific profiles for it, but who knows if it will play something that's a bit different from those 2?  I know the 360 was very specific about it's support of MPEG4 profitles.

Wow,  I missed the live event, but waking up to see this news is awesome! 

 

I'm a heavy local media user, so to see MS bringing back a 360 feature and improving it greatly for the X1 is exactly the kind of improvement I was looking for. The whole released list sounds good, but this is something I have wanted since day 1.

 

I'm anxious to see the media support in action and the proper dlna usage. I also hope they are willing to expand format support as it goes along. Its windows underneath, so there is less keeping them from doing that. Now my main media related issue boils down to background audio support. Allow media apps to play in the background.

 

MS continues to impress with their aggressive software rollouts. They need to keep it up.

Agreed regarding the background media.  I'd love to play EA Golf (when it comes out) with my music library playing in the background.  :-)

 

...and imagine if this was a "snappable" feature, so we could change tracks/playlists on the fly.

For the people who bring up background music playing I bet they haven't added it to the player on the XB1 right yet because of this new media player that's coming out with all the new codec support and so on.  They'd have to be crazy not to allow background audio by then I mean hell, they're going to give us the ability to stream live TV to any smartglass device while the XB1 is playing a game so I think they can work out background audio without issue.

x264 is not a Codec, it's an encoder.

h264 is the codec.

 

The 360 had lots of issues with h264 profiles just because of when it was made, and the hardware in it. 

 

The Xbox One will likely support h264 all the way up to L4.1, which is the same as Blurays use, as well as most HD content.

I doubt it will support L5.1, which was widely used for HD encoding before hardware decoders on video cards became available.. Still used by some groups.. offers the best Picture/Size, but can exceed the ability of hardware devices to playback.

I also doubt it will support Hi10, which is 10bit encoding, which is becoming more popular, especially in Anime.

 

But most content you will see, it'll support. 99% of all stuff uses basic h264 L4.1 and less profiles, as it offers the widest compatibility.

I'm assumed it was a typo, since it doesn't make sense as a question if you're referring to the encoder, as it encodes h264 files.

Ignorance is the more common reason :)

 

People see x264 in the filenames of the movies/shows they download and just assume it's the codec :)

Hi10 support would be awesome. I happen to have a lot in that format. As you said, that is great for encoding Anime or Cartoons. I know its a long shot, but you never know.
