How to easily stream videos from your Mac to Xbox One


Thank you for this! It makes it so much better than what I had been doing! I had my Apple TV plugged to the back of the xbox and would use the tv function. Now I can hook my actual satellite box back to the xbox and stream my movies with this new way!

This might be a good option as I have an Xbox One and Apple TV but somehow my late 2013 Retina MPB is still clunky about always streaming audio over AirPlay to my ATV =P
