Rock64 + XBox One X - 4K playback finally works!!
#1
I have bought Rock64 mainly as media server but I couldn't stream 4K content to my Xbox that is my main media client especially now when there is VLC and Kodi available in M$ Store.


Microsoft recently fixed 4K playback @ Xbox One S/X.
Until now, console crashed when the same 4K movie was loaded via any player.
Yesterday, I was able to run 2160p x265 movie streamed form my Rock64.
I don't own 4K TV so it was purely for testing purposes and console has to do even more heavy lifting to run UHD image and downscale it to FHD Smile 
...but for 4K TV owners this is good news!

My Setup:
4GB RAM ROck64
64GB eMMC
stretch-openmediavault-rock64-0.6.25-193-armhf
1gb LAN

VLC + SMB  = works OK 
Kodi + NFS = still unwatchable (not sure if it's due to codecs or transfer as NFS works way slower than SMB for Windows shares).
Will test other resources and codecs soon.
