My PS3 quit working so I bought a PS4 Slim 500gb. Downloaded the media player and it won’t recognize MP4 movies, although I think it can. Am I missing something? None of the movies are protected either.
See the list of PS4 Media Player supported file formats, I got know that there are limits of MP4 support:
- Video: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level4.2
- Audio: AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)
That means if MP4 files are encoded with other video/audio codecs, PS4 won’t recognized it. What’s more, when using a USB storage device, video files need to be in a folder for PS4 system to recognize them. To avoid the incompatibility issue, a good suggestion via Google searching, is to convert MP4 to PS4 Slim more friendly format.
Actually, it’s easy to get the job done. What I’m using is Brorsoft Video Converter. This video converter has been proven to be an outstanding MP4 to PS4 Slim converter. With it, you can convert different MP4 videos to PS4 Slim compatible H.264 MP4 effortlessly. In addition to MP4 files, this program also allows you to convert all videos in AVI, MKV, MPG, VOB, TiVo, MOV, etc to a decent format as you want.
