Canon Xbox One X play DVD/BR ISO local or DLNA?
“I am thinking about converting my DVD and BluRay discs to ISO files and storing away the discs. Anyone know if it is possible for the Xbox One X to play the ISO files with the menus and all through either DLNA server on a NAS (preferred) or locally connected to a USB hard drive? I know Xbox One X can play “ripped” movies but would really prefer to have the menus and extras. Appreciate any feedback, tnx.”
The bad news is that you can’t directly play BD/DVD ISO files on Xbox One X from neither USB drive nor through DLNA server on a NAS. Xbox One X also makes it clear in its supported sources list – “Xbox One X does not support the use of ISO, IMG, Video_TS, or other “disk image” formats.” The good news is that you can rip ISO to Xbox One X other compatible digital file formats with a third-party BD/DVD ISO Ripper application.

Tips to play ripped ISO files on Xbox One X from USB drive
If you have a USB flash drive or external drive, you can use it to play videos on the Xbox One. The Xbox One supports USB 1, USB 2, and USB 3 drives. The drive must be formatted in FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, or NTFS. If you have a Windows PC, your USB drive will work on your Xbox One as long as your Windows PC can read it. If you have a Mac, be sure to format the drive as exFAT and not with a Mac-only file system like HFS+.
Open the Xbox One X Media Player app and you’ll see your connected drive as an option. Select the drive and you can browse all the media files on it and play them, controlling the playback with your Xbox controller.
Tips to stream ripped ISO to Xbox One X via DLNA server or NAS
Alternative, you can skip the USB drive and stream a video from your computer to your Xbox One X using DLNA. You could also use a network attached storage (NAS) device as a DLNA media server if you have one.
To do this, you’ll need to set up a DLNA server on your PC or Mac first. Microsoft recommend and recommend – and officially supports -Windows Media Player as a DLNA server. If you use a Mac, you’ll need to find a third-party DLNA server like Plex.
To activate the DLNA server included with Windows, open the Control Panel, search for “media,” and click the “Media streaming options” link under Network & Sharing Center. Click the “Turn on media streaming” button here. This makes the files available in your Music, Pictures, and Videos libraries available for streaming. (So if your video file isn’t in your Videos folder already, you’ll want to put it there now.)
Once you have a DLNA server set up, it will appear in your Xbox One’s Media Player app as an option alongside any connected USB drives, allowing you to browse and stream media files stored in your media libraries.
