How to Play Videos, Music and Photos on Your PS4


It’s been almost two years since the PlayStation 4 (PS4) was released worldwide. The biggest concern of the people at that time was the lack of media playback. Microsoft’s Xbox One also launched without the same features, but added them quickly, supporting USB playback of popular formats for audio, video, and photos.

Although that has now changed, Sony has released a media player application for the console. It’s a free application that you can download using your PlayStation 4, and you can use it to play videos, music, and photos from a connected USB storage device. The media player can also display media content from DNLA media servers that are on the same network as your PS4 system.
