Stream/Play ISO on Xbox One

Can Xbox One support ISO playback?

Unlike Xbox 360, the Xbox One use its own Xbox Media Player app for playing local video and music files from external USB drive or streamed from local network. Therefore, the file formats you are going to stream or play on Xbox One should be included in Xbox Media Player app supported formats list as below:

Music, Video, and Container Formats: 3GP audio, 3GP video, 3GP2, AAC, ADTS, .asf, AVI DivX, DV AVI, AVI uncompressed, AVI Xvid, H.264 AVCHD, M-JPEG, .mkv, .mov, MP3, MPEG-PS, MPEG-2, MPEG-2 HD, MPEG-2 TS, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, MPEG-4 SP, WAV, WMA, WMA Lossless, WMA Pro, WMA Voice, WMV, WMV HD
