How to play local video and music files on your playstation 4

Use (Media Player) to enjoy videos, photos, and music saved on USB storage devices and media servers.
You can play these types of files:

Videos

When using a USB storage device, your video files need to be in a folder for your PS4™ system to recognize them.
You can view video recorded by a 360-degree omnidirectional camera (in equirectangular video format) on your PS VR. Press the OPTIONS button, and then select [VR Mode].

Like the Roku and Chromecast, Sony’s PlayStation 4 can play video and music files from a USB drive or another computer on your network. Your PS4 can even play local music files in the background while you play a game.

This is thanks to the “Media Player” app, which Sony added more than a year and a half after the PS4 was released. There’s also a now-free-to-use Plex app for streaming videos from another one of your PCs.

Supported File Types and Codecs

Here’s a list of different video and audio codecs the PlayStation’s Media Player understands, straight from Sony. If you want to play a media file on your PlayStation, it must be in these file formats. If it isn’t, you’ll need to transcode it to a supported one before it will function on your PlayStation.

Music files can be in MP3 or AAC (M4A) formats. Photos can be in JPEG, BMP, or PNG formats. Video files must be in one of the following formats:

  • Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2
  • Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3(Dolby Digital)
  • Visual: MPEG4 ASP, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2
  • Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3(Dolby Digital)
  • Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level 4.2
  • Audio: AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2, MPEG2
  • Audio: MP2(MPEG2 Audio Layer 2), AAC LC, AC-3(Dolby Digital)
  • AVCHD: (.m2ts, .mts)

These are some of the most common video file types, so you may not need to worry about it at all.

Use the Correct File System on Your USB Drive

So you have the right files–now it’s time to get them to your PlayStation. To get started, plug a USB drive into your computer. The drive must be formatted with either the exFAT or FAT32 file system, as the PlayStation 4 can’t read NTFS. If your drive is formatted with the NTFS file system, you’ll see an error after you connect it to the PlayStation 4. It just won’t appear or be usable.

To double-check, right-click the drive in Windows and select “Format.” Format it to use the exFAT file system if it’s currently using NTFS. This will erase all files currently on the drive, so back up any files you care about before doing this.

You Must Place Your Media Files in Folders

Sony doesn’t mention this anywhere, so we bumped into this problem ourselves. If you just have a video file and dump it into the “root” folder of your USB drive, the PlayStation 4 won’t see it. Your files must be located inside a folder on the drive or your PS4 won’t be able to use them.

Audio files must be located in a folder called “Music” on the drive for the PS4 to detect them correctly. Video files can be in any folder, but they need to be in a folder and not on the root of the drive. You could put them in a folder named “Videos”, or create separate folders for different types of videos. LIkewise, photos must also be stored in folders if you want to view them, but any folder name will do.

Use the PS4 Media Player

Once you’re done, you can “safely remove” the USB drive from your computer and plug it into one of the USB ports on your PS4 — there are a few located on the front that are usually used for charging your controllers. Launch the PS4 Media Player app and your USB drive will appear as an option.

You’ll see the PS4’s “Media Player” app icon in the PS4’s “content area” — that strip of icons on the main screen. Select it with your controller and launch it. If you haven’t installed the media player app yet, the icon will still appear here, but it’ll take you to the PlayStation Store where you can download the app for free first.

Select your USB drive, browse to the music or videos you want to play, and use the buttons on the controller to control playback.

While playing a video, you can press the L2 and R2 shoulder buttons to rewind and fast forward. Press the “Options” button to open a playback control panel, and press the triangle button to view information about the file.

When playing music, you can hold down the PlayStation button while in a game to access the quick media player controls, allowing you to quickly skip songs and pause playback.

Alternatively: Use a DLNA or Plex Server

If you don’t want to connect USB drives directly to your PS4 and ferry media files back and forth that way, you can stream videos and music from a DLNA server to your PlayStation 4. The PS4 Media Player app will detect compatible DLNA servers on your home network and offer them as options right alongside any connected USB devices when you open it

Use our guide to setting up a DLNA media server if you want to go this route. However, if you’re looking at streaming over the network, Plex is a more full-featured solution you might want to look at. Plex recently became free-to-use without a “Plex Pass” subscription on the PlayStation 4.

The PlayStation 4 also offers apps for streaming from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon, and other services, but sometimes you just need to play back some local media files. It took Sony over a year and a half to add this option, but it’s here now, so enjoy taking advantage of it.

Gone are the days when your games console would be used exclusively for playing games and maybe watching a couple of movies. Today the PS4 is an all-powerful multimedia center capable of doing everything from streaming your Spotify playlists to watching Netflix. Rumour has it that an upcoming patch will make your PS4 capable of scratching your back while whispering ASMR nothings in your ear.

As of 2015, your PS4 is also very capable of playing media files that you keep on an external USB hard drive (You can’t store media files locally on your PS4, unfortunately,), and in this article we’ll show you how.

Prepare Your External HDD/USB Drive

The first thing you’ll need to do is make sure that the device that you’ll be using to play your media files is formatted correctly. The PS4 supports FAT32 and exFAT formats (not NTFS). We recommend using the exFAT format rather than the old FAT32 because it lets you store much larger individual files which you’ll definitely need in the case of videos.

You can format your external HDD or USB drive on just about any computer. Here’s our guides on how to format an external HDD on Mac and how to format an external HDD/USB Drive on Windows. If you’re focusing in particular on optimizing your hard drive for playing movies, then check out our guide on how to format a hard drive fit for movies.

Play Video Files on Your PS4

Using the onboard media player you can use your PS4 to play video files in the MKV, AVI, MP4 and MP2 TS formats. Bear in mind that your video files will also need to be using the correct codecs for picture and sound. So if, for example, you have an MKV video, its audio codec will need to be either MP3, AAC LC or AC-3, otherwise you won’t hear anything. Here’s Sony’s official list of all supported media formats and codecs for the PS4.

On your freshly formatted exFAT hard drive, throw all the video files you want to play on your PS4 into a folder with a name of your choice. (They have to be in a folder, otherwise your PS4 won’t see them.) When you’re done, plug the hard drive into your PS4, go to “Media Player,” then navigate to your videos.

Play Music Files on Your PS4

It’s much the same story here as it is with video files, except the supported formats in this case are FLAC, MP3 and AAC. The really important bit of info you need to know is that the folder you create for your music files on your hard drive needs to be called “Music” in order for your PS4 to see them.

The great thing about playing music files on your PS4 is that you can play your favorite tunes while gaming. Once you’ve started playing your music using the Media Player, during gaming hold down the PS button to access the Quick Menu where you’ll have basic music playback control such as Pause/Play, Previous/Next Track, and so on.

Conclusion

Playing media files on your PS4 is, mercifully, a whole lot easier than it used to be thanks to some much-called-for and much-needed patching from Sony. It’s a little frustrating that you can’t store media files locally on your PS4 and play them directly from there, but who knows? Shout about it loudly enough and it may just happen.

Local media servers have gone out of style. Microsoft no longer makes Windows Home Server and is phasing out Windows Media Center. But there are still great solutions if you want to run a home media server and stream to all your devices.

Sure, you could just connect a PC to your TV, but these provide convenient interfaces across all your devices. That means apps for TV streaming boxes, smartphones, tablets, and web-based interfaces for everything else. They even work over the Internet.

Bring Your Own Media

There are some good free software packages for this, but you’ll need to bring your own media. If you have a large collection of local video and music files — perhaps videos ripped from DVDs and music ripped from audio CDs — this may be the ideal way to access that content on all your devices without relying on streaming services like Netflix and Spotify.

These apps often allow you to browse and access photos, too — perfect if you’re the type of person who keeps a local photo collection, too.

Plex vs. Media Browser: Choose One

The two biggest solutions to recommend are probably Plex and Media Browser. Both work similarly, offering a server you install on a desktop PC, laptop, NAS device, or dedicated home server. You could also try Kodi, formerly known as XBMC — it can be a bit more complicated to set up and works a bit differently.

Plex and Media Browser both offer servers that run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, BSD, and various NAS devices. You can install it on a desktop computer, a dedicated server, or get a pre-made NAS device that supports the server software.

Plex offers clients for the Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, and PlayStation platforms — as well as Chromecast support. They offer mobile apps for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows 8. There’s also a web interface and powerful Plex application for computers, if you hook up a computer to your TV.

Media Browser offers clients for the Roku and some other TV-streaming devices, including Chromecast support. There are also mobile apps for for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Windows 8. Want to use it on a computer? There’s a convenient web-based interface.

Both have fairly similar features, although Plex definitely offers a more comprehensive suite of apps — PlayStation, Xbox, and Fire TV support, for example. However, some Plex services cost money. The iOS Plex app costs $5, and the Xbox and PlayStation app both require a “Plex Pass” subscription that will cost you $5 a month.

Media Browser and its apps are completely free, so there’s no monthly fee or per-app purchases you’ll have to deal with — then again, Media Browser doesn’t even offer PlayStation or Xbox support you could purchase if you wanted to. So, you’ll need to pick one — or, better yet, consider trying both and figuring out which one works best for you.

Set Up the Server, Install the Apps, and Start Streaming

The setup process should just take a few minutes, no matter what server you choose to use. Install the Plex or Media Browser on your system of choice and set it up to point at your media. Both Plex and Media Browser offer an optional account system, which can simplify signing into the mobile and TV apps and connecting to your server remotely over the Internet.

You can then install the appropriate apps on your TV-streaming boxes, smartphones, and tablets. Use them to access your streaming media. This part is fairly easy. If you have a Chromecast, remember that you don’t need any special Plex or Media Browser app on your TV — you can install the appropriate app on your smartphone and then use it to cast media directly to your Chromecast.

You’ll also need to run your own home server for this. If you have a desktop PC or laptop and are happy just accessing the server while your computer is running, you can just install the server software on your desktop computer.

You could also set up a dedicated server system to run the server, of course. That’d be a computer you could leave running all the time and even access your media server remotely over the Internet. It doesn’t have to be a full, high-powered computer — it could be a low-power, small-form-factor NAS device with a large hard drive for holding all those media files.

MP4 file format seems one of Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) supported native video formats for playback. But the weird thing is that MP4 not playing error comes from time to time, for example, PS4 won’t recognize MP4 files, or your MP4 video absolutely not showing in the folder of USB drive when PS4 Media Player is scanning files. So what’s the matter? This article will figure out why PS4 not playing MP4 files and how to view MP4 videos on PS4 easily.

Why Some Certain MP4 Files Not Playing on PS4?

Like the Roku and Chromecast, Sony’s PlayStation 4 can play video and music files from a USB drive or another computer on your network. This is thanks to the “Media Player” app, which Sony added more than a year and a half after the PS4 was released. There’s also a now-free-to-use Plex app for streaming videos from another one of your PCs. Why your PS4 won’t see some MP4 files? Actually, it can be caused by various reasons. Maybe it’s an issue of your file names, MP4 video format compatibility, the MP4 file type, or the USB file system etc. To be specific, there’s a number of potential scenarios how PS4 not working with MP4 files:

Reason 1. Wrong file system on your USB drive. When using a USB storage device, the drive must be formatted with either the exFAT or FAT32 file system, as the PlayStation 4 can’t read NTFS. If your drive is formatted with the NTFS file system, you’ll see an error after you connect it to the PlayStation 4. It just won’t appear or be usable.

To double-check, right-click the drive in Windows and select “Format”. Format it to use the exFAT file system if it’s currently using NTFS. This will erase all files currently on the drive, so back up any files you care about before doing this.

Reason 2. You didn’t place your MP4 file in folders. Sony doesn’t mention this anywhere, so we bumped into this problem ourselves. If you just have a video file and dump it into the “root” folder of your USB drive, the PlayStation 4 won’t see it. Your files must be located inside a folder (any folder you like) on the drive or your PS4 won’t be able to use them.

Reason 3. MP4 file is corrupted. MP4 won’t play if your MP4 file is corrupted or the information in the container is wrong.

You’ve checked all of the above possible reasons and didn’t find any problem while your PS4 still cannot play some certain MP4 files or cannot play them correctly, for example, video or audio lag, dropped frames, missing audio, audio is not in sync, unsupported video format / codec errors and more. If so, it’s probably caused by the reason 4.

Reason 4. MP4 format/codec is not supported. MP4 is just a video container, which can be encoded with a wide range of codecs, like HEVC, H.264, MPEG-4, VP9, AAC, AC-3 (Dobly Digital), DTS audio etc. According to PlayStation support website, PS4 only supports playing MP4 files encoded with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile (AAC LC) and it has poor compatibility with some of the codecs, such as Dolby True Audio and DTS Audio, which will make MP4 not playing on PS4.

How to Fix PS4 Not Playing MP4 File Due to Format/Codec Incompatibity
– Convert PS4 unrecognized MP4 to H.264+AAC MP4 for better compatibility.

MP4 is a nice container for video libraries and it’s widely supported… but PS4 only supports MP4 files with sepcific video and audio codecs. Therefore, encoding/re-encoding MP4 file is the the most effective yet easiest solution recommended by us. To get the job done, you can adopt EaseFab Video Converter for help. This program is very easy-to-use, and it can do fast batch conversion from MP4, MKV, VOB, TiVo, and more to PS4 accepted file formats without any quality loss. Also, even if you don’t know anything about video codec and audio codec, there is no need to worry because this software has optimized presets for PS4.

Tutotorial: How to deocde MP4 to PS4 supported codec/format

PS: The step-by-step guide is almost the same on PC and Mac. Here we will take EaseFab Video Converter for Windows as the example.

Step 1. Download and launch EaseFab Video Converter on Windows PC or Mac. Click Add Video button to import your MP4 video files that PS4 doesn’t support. Dragging and droppping works too. (Note: batch conversion is supported, so you can several mov videos to the program to convert at a time.)

Step 2. Click Profile bar and move mouse cursor to Game Hardware and select PS4 (H.264 + AAC MP4 profile optimized for Sony PS4) as the output format.

Step 3. The converter enables you to preview the movie(s) to be converted. You can also choose to or not to edit the video, rename the video, or change the output folder destination. After clicking the giant Convert button on the bottom right, you are good to go and feel the stable and fast conversion on PC or Mac.

How to transfer converted MP4 files to PlayStation Video from PC/Mac

Option 1: Use the PS4 Media Player to Play the Converted MP4 Movies

Once you’re done, you can “safely remove” the USB drive from your computer and plug it into one of the USB ports on your PS4 — there are a few located on the front that are usually used for charging your controllers. Launch the PS4 Media Player app and your USB drive will appear as an option.

You’ll see the PS4’s “Media Player” app icon in the PS4’s “content area” — that strip of icons on the main screen. Select it with your controller and launch it. If you haven’t installed the media player app yet, the icon will still appear here, but it’ll take you to the PlayStation Store where you can download the app for free first.

Select your USB drive, browse to the music or videos you want to play, and use the buttons on the controller to control playback.

While playing a video, you can press the L2 and R2 shoulder buttons to rewind and fast forward. Press the “Options” button to open a playback control panel, and press the triangle button to view information about the file.

Option 2: Use a DLNA or Plex Server

If you don’t want to connect USB drives directly to your PS4 and ferry media files back and forth that way, you can stream videos and music from a DLNA server to your PlayStation 4. The PS4 Media Player app will detect compatible DLNA servers on your home network and offer them as options right alongside any connected USB devices when you open it.

If you’re looking at streaming over the network, Plex is a more full-featured solution you might want to look at.

The PlayStation 4 also offers apps for streaming from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon, and other services, but sometimes you just need to play back some local media files formatted in MP4, MKV, VOB,e tc. It took Sony over a year and a half to add this option, but it’s here now, so enjoy taking advantage of it.

Kaip “Roku” ir “Chromecast”, “Sony PlayStation 4” gali atkurti vaizdo įrašus ir muzikos failus iš USB įrenginio ar kito jūsų tinklo kompiuterio. Jūsų “PS4” netgi galite žaisti vietinius muzikos failus fone, kai žaidžiate žaidimą.

Tai yra “Media Player” programa, kurią “Sony” pridūrė daugiau nei pusantros ir pusei po to, kai PS4 buvo išleistas. Taip pat yra nemokama naudoti Plex programa, skirta srautiniams vaizdo įrašams perkelti iš kito kompiuterio.

Palaikomi failų tipai ir kodekai

Čia pateikiama įvairių “PlayStation” “Media Player” vaizdo ir garso kodekų, tiesiai iš “Sony”. Jei norite paleisti “PlayStation” medijos failą, jis turi būti šių formatų. Jei taip nėra, prieš tai, kai jis veiks PlayStation, turėsite perkelti jį į palaikomą.

Muzikos rinkmenos gali būti MP3 arba AAC (M4A) formatuose. Nuotraukos gali būti JPEG, BMP ar PNG formatuose. Vaizdo failai turi būti vienu iš šių formatų:

  • Vaizdas: H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC aukšto profilio lygis4.2
  • Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Vaizdas: MPEG4 ASP, H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2
  • Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Vaizdo : H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC Aukšto lygio profilis 4.2
  • Audio: AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Vaizdas: H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC aukštas profilis AVCHD: (.m2ts, .mts)
  • Tai yra keletas dažniausiai pasitaikančių
  • Naudokite teisingą failų sistemą USB diske

Koks skirtumas tarp FAT32, exFAT ir NTFS?

Taigi, turite tinkamų failų – dabar laikas pasiimti juos į “PlayStation”. Norėdami pradėti, prijunkite USB diską prie kompiuterio. Vykdymas turi būti suformatuotas naudojant exFAT arba FAT32 failų sistemą, nes “PlayStation 4” negali skaityti “NTFS”. Jei jūsų diskas yra suformatuotas naudojant NTFS failų sistemą, po jo prijungimo prie “PlayStation 4” pasirodys klaida. Tai tiesiog nebus rodomas arba nebus naudojamas. Norėdami dvigubai patikrinti, dešiniuoju pelės mygtuku spustelėkite diską Windows ir pasirinkite “Format”. Formatuokite, jei norite naudoti exFAT failų sistemą, jei šiuo metu naudojate “NTFS”. Tai panaikins visus šiuo metu diske esančius failus, todėl prieš tai darykite atsarginę visų rūpesčių failų.

Jūs turite įdėti žiniasklaidos rinkmenas aplankuose

“Sony” to nieko neminima, todėl mes įstrigome į šią problemą mes patys. Jei tiesiog turėsite vaizdo įrašo failą ir išmeskite jį į savo USB disko aplanką “root”, “PlayStation 4” jo nematys. Jūsų failai turi būti diske esančio aplanko viduje arba jūsų PS4 negalės jų naudoti.

Garso failai turi būti PS4 įrenginio aplanke, pavadintame “Muzika”, kad jie būtų teisingai aptikti. Vaizdo failai gali būti bet kuriame aplanke, tačiau jie turi būti aplanke, o ne disko šaknyje. Galite įdėti juos į aplanką “Video” arba sukurti atskirus aplankus skirtingiems vaizdo įrašų tipams. LIkewise, nuotraukos taip pat turi būti saugomos aplankuose, jei norite juos peržiūrėti, bet tai darys ir aplanko pavadinimas.

Naudokite PS4 media grotuvą

Kai baigsite, galite “saugiai pašalinti” USB diską iš savo kompiuterį ir prijunkite jį prie vieno iš jūsų “PS4” USB prievadų. Iš priekio yra keletas, paprastai naudojamų valdikliams įkrauti. Paleiskite “PS4 Media Player” programą ir USB įrenginys pasirodys kaip parinktis.

PS4 “Media Player” programos piktograma bus rodoma PS4 “turinio srityje” – tai piktogramų juosta pagrindiniame ekrane. Pasirinkite jį savo valdikliu ir paleiskite. Jei dar neįdiegėte medijos leistuvo programos, piktograma vis tiek bus rodoma čia, bet ji pateks į “PlayStation” parduotuvę, kurioje pirmiausia galite nemokamai atsisiųsti programą.

Pasirinkite USB diską, suraskite muziką ar vaizdo įrašus, kuriuos norite žaisti, ir naudokite reguliatoriaus mygtukus, kad galėtumėte valdyti atkūrimą.

Grojant vaizdo įrašą, galite paspausti L2 ir R2 pečių mygtukus, kad galėtumėte suktis į priekį. Paspauskite mygtuką “Parinktys”, kad atidarytumėte atkūrimo valdymo skydą, ir paspauskite trikampio mygtuką, jei norite peržiūrėti informaciją apie failą.

Žaidžiant muziką, galite laikyti “PlayStation” mygtuką žaidime, kad galėtumėte pasiekti greitą medijos leistuvo valdiklį, leidžiančią greitai praleisti dainas ir pristabdyti atkūrimą.

Arba: naudokite DLNA arba Plex serverį

Jei ne Norint USB įrenginius tiesiogiai prijungti prie PS4 ir keltų medijos failų tokiu būdu, galite perkelti vaizdo įrašus ir muziką iš DLNA serverio į “PlayStation 4”. “PS4 Media Player” programa aptiks suderinamuosius DLNA serverius jūsų namų tinkle atidarę juos kartu su bet kokiais prijungtais USB įrenginiais.

Jei norite eiti šiuo maršrutu, naudokite mūsų vadovą DLNA žiniasklaidos serverio nustatymui. Tačiau, jei pažvelgsite į transliaciją per tinklą, “Plex” yra daugiau išsamių sprendimų, kuriuos galbūt norėsite pažvelgti. “Plex” neseniai tapo nemokama be “Plex Pass” prenumeratos PlayStation 4.

“PlayStation 4” taip pat siūlo programas srautams iš “Netflix”, “Hulu”, “YouTube”, “Amazon” ir kitų paslaugų, bet kartais jums tiesiog reikia atkurti kai kuriuos vietinius medijos failus.

Nothing really works except this awesome app

If you have an Android device and a PlayStation 4, you might be wondering what’s the best way to stream your photos and videos from your phone or tablet to the PS4? If you do a Google search, you’ll get all kinds of results with a whole bunch of different possible solutions.

I tried out most of them and was surprised to find that nothing really worked! The main solution was to download an app that would turn the Android device into a media server, but one app was no longer available (Skifta) and the other one worked, but it would not let me play any of my videos (iMediaShare)!

Instead of using apps I had never heard of, I decided to try out some familiar names in the media server business: Kodi, Plex, Tversity. While doing the research, I realized that Kodi doesn’t have an app for the PlayStation 4 and Tversity doesn’t have an Android app. This only left me with Plex, which has an app in both stores.

In this article, I’ll show you how to use Plex to stream your local photos and videos from your Android device to your PlayStation 4 for free. Plex has subscription plans and also a small one-time fee to “activate” your mobile app, but you don’t need any of that if you just want to stream local videos from your device to the PS4.

Before we get started, you need to create a free Plex account. Visit the website here and click on Sign Up. Once you have your username and password, let’s get Plex installed on the PS4.

Install Plex App on PlayStation 4

To install the app on your PS4, you need to go to the PlayStation Store and then scroll down until you see the section called Apps. On the right-hand select, select Popular.

Scroll down until you see the Plex thumbnail. It will be several rows down before you see it.

Select Download and wait for the app to install. Once complete, you can either select Start or you can go back to the Home screen, select TV & Video and then scroll down until you see the Plex icon.

When you open the app on the PS4, you’ll need to select the Sign In button at the bottom right. If you didn’t create an account yet with Plex, you should do so now.

The next screen will show you a code and tell you to visit https://plex.tv/link to add your PlayStation to your Plex account.

Visit the website and you’ll first have to sign into your Plex account. You’ll then have to enter the code that is showing on your TV into the text box.

Finally, tap on Link and if everything went well, you should see a App Linked message.

On your TV, you’ll see that Plex has been linked and that it will start looking for a Plex server immediately. You’ll then get a screen with a big error message.

Don’t worry about this right now! We have to install the app on our Android device, configure it and then come back to this screen. Just so you know, once the app on the phone or tablet is setup, we’re going to select Go Home, not Retry.

Install Plex App on Android Device

On your Android device, open the Google Play Store and search for Plex. Go ahead and install the app.

Open the app and you’ll be asked to log in or sign up. Go ahead and log into the app using your Plex account credentials. The next screen will then try to get you to purchase a subscription or activate the device, neither of which you need to do. Just tap on Stay in Trial Mode at the very bottom.

This will bring you to the Plex home screen, where you will see a message stating that no servers have been found. This is fine, again, because we do not need to setup a full-fledged Plex server. All we are going to do is make our app act as a server and the content will be the photos and videos stored on the phone or tablet.

In order to setup the app properly, you have to first tap on Grant Permission so that other Plex apps can access the camera roll media. Once you have done that, you need to tap on the three horizontal lines at the top left and then tap on Settings.

You’ll see another menu with more options. Here you have to tap on System.

Finally, on the System settings screen, we have to make sure all of the items are checked. Most importantly, we need to check Advertise as server, Show camera roll media and Network discovery.

Access Media on PS4

Now we can go back to the PS4 and select Go Home. If everything is setup properly and both of your devices are connected to the same network, you should see your Android device show up at the top right along with Local Photos and Local Videos.

If you select Local Videos, for example, you should get a list of all the videos that are currently saved on your Android device.

In my tests, the videos played immediately from my Nexus 6 and the video stream was smooth. Obviously, this only works for videos that are stored directly on your Android device. As mentioned, this was the best and most reliable way I could find to get my photos and videos onto the PS4 for free. If you know of a better way, feel free to let us know in the comments. Enjoy!

Подібно Roku та Chromecast, PlayStation 4 від Sony може відтворювати відео та музичні файли з диска USB або іншого комп’ютера у вашій мережі. Ваш PS4 може навіть відтворювати локальні музичні файли у фоновому режимі під час гри.

Це завдяки програмі «Media Player», яку компанія Sony додала більше півтора років після виходу PS4. Також існує безкоштовна програма Plex для потокового відео з іншого комп’ютера.

Підтримувані типи файлів і кодеки

Ось список різних відео- та аудіокодеків, які розуміє медіапрогравач PlayStation, безпосередньо з Sony. Якщо ви хочете відтворити мультимедійний файл на PlayStation, він повинен бути у цих форматах. Якщо це не так, вам доведеться перекодувати його на підтримувану, перш ніж вона буде працювати на PlayStation.

Музичні файли можуть бути у форматах MP3 або AAC (M4A). Фотографії можуть бути у форматах JPEG, BMP або PNG. Відеофайли мають бути в одному з таких форматів:

  • Візуальний: Високий рівень профілю H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC4.2
  • Аудіо: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Візуальний: MPEG4 ASP, H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC Високий рівень профілю4.2
  • Аудіо: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Visual: H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC Високий рівень профілю 4.2
  • Аудіо: AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • Візуальний: H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC Високий профіль Level4.2, MPEG2
  • Аудіо: MP2 (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2), AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
  • AVCHD: (.m2ts, .mts)

Ось деякі з найпоширеніших типів відеофайлів, тому вам може не знати, що це потрібно.

Використовуйте коректну файлову систему на USB-диску

Таким чином, у вас є потрібні файли – тепер прийшов час потрапити до PlayStation. Для початку підключіть USB-диск до комп’ютера. Привід повинен бути відформатований або з файловою системою exFAT або FAT32, оскільки PlayStation 4 не може читати NTFS. Якщо привід відформатовано у файловій системі NTFS, після підключення до PlayStation 4 ви побачите помилку..

Щоб двічі перевірити, клацніть правою кнопкою миші диск у Windows і виберіть “Формат”. Відформатуйте його, щоб використовувати файлову систему exFAT, якщо він в даний час використовує NTFS. Це призведе до видалення всіх файлів, які наразі знаходяться на диску, тому створіть резервні копії всіх файлів, які вам потрібні, перш ніж робити це.

Ви повинні розмістити медіафайли в папках

Компанія Sony ніде цього не згадує, тому ми самі зіткнулися з цією проблемою. Якщо у вас просто є відеофайл і скинути його в “кореневу” папку вашого USB-накопичувача, PlayStation 4 не побачить його. Ваші файли повинні знаходитись у папці на диску або PS4 не зможе їх використовувати.

Аудіофайли повинні бути розташовані в папці під назвою “Музика” на диску, щоб PS4 виявив їх правильно. Відеофайли можуть бути в будь-якій папці, але вони повинні бути в папці, а не в корені диска. Ви можете помістити їх у папку з назвою “Відео” або створити окремі папки для різних типів відео. LIkewise, фотографії також повинні бути збережені в папках, якщо ви хочете переглянути їх, але будь-яке ім’я папки буде робити.

Використовуйте медіапрогравач PS4

Після того, як ви закінчите, ви можете “безпечно видалити” USB-диск з комп’ютера і підключити його до одного з портів USB на вашому PS4 – є кілька розташованих на передній панелі, які зазвичай використовуються для зарядки ваших контролерів. Запустіть додаток для медіапрогравача PS4 і ваш USB-накопичувач з’явиться як опція.

Ви побачите піктограму програми «Media Player» PS4 у «контентній області» PS4 – смузі піктограм на головному екрані. Виберіть його за допомогою контролера і запустіть його. Якщо ви ще не встановили додаток для медіапрогравача, значок буде відображатися тут, але він перенесе вас до PlayStation Store, де ви зможете завантажити програму безкоштовно.

Виберіть пристрій USB, перейдіть до музики або відео, які потрібно відтворити, і використовуйте кнопки на контролері для керування відтворенням.

Під час відтворення відео можна натиснути кнопки плеча L2 і R2, щоб перемотати назад і перемотати вперед. Натисніть кнопку «Параметри», щоб відкрити панель керування відтворенням, і натисніть кнопку трикутника, щоб переглянути інформацію про файл.

Під час відтворення музики ви можете утримувати кнопку PlayStation під час гри, щоб отримати доступ до швидкого керування медіа-програвачем, що дозволяє швидко пропускати пісні та призупиняти відтворення.

Або: Використовуйте DLNA або Plex Server

Якщо ви не бажаєте підключати USB-накопичувачі безпосередньо до PS4 і пересилати медіа-файли вперед і назад таким чином, ви можете передати відео та музику з сервера DLNA на PlayStation 4. Програма Media Player PS4 виявить сумісні сервери DLNA на у вашій домашній мережі та пропонуйте їх як опції поряд з будь-якими підключеними пристроями USB, коли ви відкриваєте його

Використовуйте наш посібник з налаштування мультимедійного сервера DLNA, якщо ви хочете йти цим маршрутом. Однак, якщо ви дивитеся на потокове передавання по мережі, Plex – це більш повнофункціональне рішення, на яке ви можете подивитися. Нещодавно Plex став вільним для використання без підписки “Plex Pass” на PlayStation 4.

PlayStation 4 також пропонує програми для потокової передачі з Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Amazon та інших служб, але іноді потрібно просто відтворити деякі локальні медіа-файли. Компанії Sony знадобилося більше півтора років, щоб додати цю опцію, але вона зараз тут, так що користуйтеся її перевагою.
