    Hey, I stumbled across this when I was going to Archive a Folder full of music and found I could play and Music/Video to my Xbox One!

    All you have to do Is have the XboxOne connected to the same router, then have your Xbox turned on, then head over to yourr Laptop/PC find any music/video you want, Right click, Find 'Play to' and select your console:

    Depending what you have chose, if you selected music to play, it will open Xbox Music and play your selected music, and if video it will go to Xbox Video and play the Movie/Video selected ;)

    I didn't see this uploaded so I decided to upload, I was pretty chuffed when I found the play to button.

    If you couldnt see 'Play To' open the spoiler below:
    1.) (ON XBOX1) Head into the “Preferences” option through the user settings menu. Make sure that the “PlayTo” streaming option is checked.
    2.) Click on Start menu and click on “Devices and Printers”.
    3.) Add a device. The Xbox One OS should be an available UPnP option.
