PS4 Update: PS4 Pro Now Plays 4K Videos with Media Player App


You can now play 4k videos from a USB drive or home server on the PS4 Pro via the Media Player App, Sony announced in an official blog post on Monday. Media Player app updated to support 4k on PS4 pro. File must be an MP4 container. PS VR can also run 4k 360 degree content now. PS4 Pro is an upgraded version of the Original PlayStation 4.

The only carefulness is that the files must be in MP4 format, as different to the more admired MKV container, which not only supports more video codecs, but can also store subtitles.

PS4 System Software Update

It doesn’t have decoded support for HECV aka H.265 either, so you’ll need to make sure the files is determined using H.264.

As a prompt, Sony added that any USB drives that have been formatted to serve as unrestricted storage for your PS4 can’t save or play videos. They can only carry your games and apps.

If you own PlayStation VR, on top of having a PS4 Pro, you can also watch 4K video content in virtual reality.

“For those of you that own PlayStation VR in addition to PS4 Pro, Media Player will also update to support playback of 4K VR video content,” John Koller, VP PlayStation’s brand marketing, said in a statement.

“PS VR’s display resolution is 1920 X RGB X 1080, so 4K VR videos will be displayed in a higher image quality compared to HD VR videos,” he added. “Capture stunning 360-degree 4K footage, and then immerse yourself in that footage in VR at home — just as if you’re right back in the prospect you shot.”

There are presently only a handful of cameras that can record 360-degree videos in 4K resolution – the likes of Samsung Gear 360, Kodak SP360 4K, and 360Fly 4K.

You can also head to YouTube if you’re looking for videos shot proficiently, which runs in 4K on the PS4 Pro, alongside both Netflix and Hulu.

PS4 it’s More Powerful, with a larger 1TB hard drive and support for 4K and HDR video. PS4 Pro also supports 4K streaming from apps like Netflix, YouTube, and Hulu. Unlike Microsoft’s Xbox One S, the PS4 Pro does not play Ultra HD Blu-ray movies.

Finding Your Media shouldn’t be too problematical since your home server will automatically appear as a media option.

Keep in mind that USB storage that’s already been formatted for your PS4 can only be used to save games and apps. Not videos.
