Ive had issues with playing 4K HDR clips through the Upload and Media Player apps on the X1X. Scorpio Player appears to be the solution to those issues. And while I dont think the video output is quiet 4K, the videos do appear to be better than stock 1080p, probably due to the images downscaling from 4K. Either way it is a step up from not being able to watch more than 2 minutes of an hour long 4K HDR clip because the standard Xbox apps dont work the way they should.
This player can play almost any format. None of the other 7-8 media players were able to play normally or at all 4k 5.1 movies over DLNA that I tried. BUT with the UI and how a few things works before you are able to watch your movie I have some problems. I have a 55"4K tv, 5.1 HTS,a WD My cloud EX2 Nas and an Xbox One X First when the player launches the UI is too small. Thankfully you are able to change the settings and from than it is useable. Sencond the DLNA search is terrible. I have to manually search and click 2-4 times on search before my server appears. Also it would be great if I could save the route to my films and series folder. Third few subtitles are showing with blue background and cant remove it. There is option to look for subs on the internet and auto dowload them but its inconvenient to do that. Four the UI is not controller friendly. you have to navigate with mouse which doesn't disappear at all and cannot stop the movie clicking on it or by pressing double A.
Positive : Good player. Many options. Negative : Can't automaticlty load subtitles .srt format from remote location. You can't change the subtitle path to a remote location on your local network.

what type of remote location?
De momento bastante contento. He podido reproducir un video 4K con sonido DTS que ni VLC ni la app de Microsot podían reproducir.
Muy bien, pero en algún momento la aplicación no soporta listas de reproducción largas y tiende a cerrarse.
miss a sound passtrough option. with that included this will be the. definitive player for xone.
Great app, but I have to choose codeing everytime, It doesn't save. I hope It gets fixed.
