    press play to and select xbox. I have changed nothing, smartglass connects, all setting are the same. I have used this function many times.

    I can access my pc files using the xbox video player. I have done all the usual stuff restarts tested connections looked at all the setting : firewall, xbox

  • you haven't really supplied enough information on what your exactly issue is.
     
    if you open the videos app, start playing a video, then select devices and then
    your XBox, what happens then?
     
    if you use the classic desktop/explorer/libraries interface and select a video,
    right click or press down on the file name does the shortcut menu contain Play
    To and can you send to your xbox that way?
