If you're making full use of the Xbox One game streaming feature in Windows 10 then you might be interested in this. Turns out there's a hidden "very high" quality setting for your streams, and with a little light tinkering it can be enabled for use.
It's been detailed on Reddit, and here's what you'll need to do.
- Navigate to "%localappdata%\Packages\" (copy and paste this into Explorer).
- Locate a folder starting with "Microsoft.XboxApp." and then head into "Local State".
- Open "userconsoledata" with a text editor, such as Notepad.
- Change the 'IsInternalPreview' variable from "false" to "true".
- Save and close the file.
Now, when you go back into the Xbox app on your PC you should see the new quality option available in settings. If you've got the bandwidth you should see some improvements in overall quality.
