@dados. I have a main WMC and 3 extenders. I mainly did my investigation about what format to choose mainly b/c I used to be a heavy Plex user on Roku (that's how I started in this game) but wanted everything on the Xbox so concentrated on using MB Classic. After some extensive testing, I found what seems to me to be the perfect configuration to ensure good quality, no transcode on the xbox. I use UNC paths, MP4, Audio AAC and ensure the bits per second is no greater than 6.4M/s. The reason for the 6.4M/s is once I figured out the format that gave good quality, anything larger than this size would cause stuttering of the video even though I have a gigabit network. So after trial and error, worked to the the 6.6M/s bit rate.


I know many people question re-encoding to a lower format but it works for me. It was a pretty extensive process for me to re-encode all of my movies. I have over 1000 movies and all that were under 6.4M/s I used xmedia recode to change the format. Any above this number I used either handbrake or xmedia recode to bring it down.
