Services like Netflix are apparently functioning at less than optimum levels.
If you haven’t been paying attention – and we don’t blame you because of the new year – then you’d be hard-pressed to find any issues with the video streaming for the Xbox One. Which is interesting because Twitter is full of complaints against the various video services for the console.
Ex-Infinity Ward developer Robert Bowling stated that, “Anyone else experiencing inconsistent video quality on @AmazonVideo on Xbox One? I get stable 1080p streaming on PS4 but sub-SD on Xbox One.”
Bowling also added that, “@TheMarkHorn @AmazonVideo Tested it myself using Elementary Season 1 although it seems to be with all videos.”
Meanwhile, another user added that, “@mariusstrom Hey were you able to fix the Netflix issue with getting stuck on 99% on very few movies on Xbox One?”
When replying to Bowling’s tweet, another user confirmed that the PS4 was indeed smoother. “@fourzerotwo I’ve had the same issue with Netflix. Xbox one very pixilated and ps4 very smooth.”
Another usesr complained that “@XboxSupport i never had streaming issues on the 360. But the xbox one keeps crackling my HD movies everytime I rent one. Any suggestions?”
As of now there’s been no word from Microsoft on the same in reply to the tweets. We should hear something sooner or later though – everyone on Twitter from developers to ordinary fans are facing problems. Have you faced issues with the Xbox One’s video streaming? Let us know in the comments.
