PS4 Pro Finally Supports 4K Video Files

It’s a shame that the PS4 Pro will never be able to play 4K Blu-rays, but Sony is trying to soften that blow with a new update that will let gamers play back 4K mp4 files using the console’s Media Player app. The update will also add 4K VR support for the PS VR, although the videos will be downscaled to the display’s 1080p resolution.

آ…the Media Player app is getting an update to support 4K video playback on PS4 Pro. Following this update, 4K videos in mp4 format saved on a USB stick or home server can be played on the Media Player app (remember, you’ll also need a 4K compatible TV to watch the videos in 4K). Your home server will appear as a media option in the Player automatically, so finding your media is simple and quick. Just a reminder: USB storage that’s already been formatted as extended storage for your PS4 can only be used to save games and apps آ— it can’t be used to save and play videos.
