Xbox One supports DLNA streaming, music CDs Microsoft's Xbox One console will support DLNA streaming and will play audio CDs, the company has confirmed.
Earlier this week, Sony revealed on an FAQ that the PlayStation 4 (PS4) console will not be DLNA complaint. Penny Arcade asked Microsoft for information about the media capabilities of the Xbox One.

The next generation Xbox is in the process of being DLNA certified. It also will play audio CDs - if you have any of those left - but its MP3 playback is a little different.

Microsoft said the system is a PlayTo receiver so it can have MP3 streamed from it using PlayTo supported devices like a Windows Phone or a computer running Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, or through Xbox Music Pass.

That suggests that the Xbox One may not play MP3 locally like the Xbox 360 can?
