Media Player Coming to PS4 Tonight

Hello PlayStation Nation! Every time we announce new features for PS4
here on PlayStation.Blog, I love going into the comments to answer your
questions and see feedback on which features people really like and
which ones people still want to see. One of those questions I have been
able to count on has been, “Where is our PS4 media player?”
If you were watching our E3 press conference pre-show, you probably
heard the good news – Media Player for the PS4 will be available to
download from PlayStation Store this evening. A Media Player icon will
appear in the PS4 content area, simply select the icon and you will be
taken to the PS Store where you can begin the download.

The Media Player works with both your home server and when plugging a
USB stick with media into one of the available ports on the PS4. Your
home server will appear as a media option in the player automatically
and finding your media is simple and quick. You may also simply enjoy
music as background music on your PS4!
Of course, we know what you really want to see: look below to see supported video and audio file formats and codec details.
