Can Xbox One/360 Play FLV Files?
Xbox One or Xbox 360 is capable of receiving and displaying video streams from your computer. However, if you transfer some FLV to Xbox One/Xbox 360, you will get no luck. The basic reason is that FLV is a preferred file format that is designed for web playback, but not compatible with Xbox consoles. To play FLV files on Xbox One/Xbox 360, you need to change the flash video to another file type like WMV.
