The PS4’S New Media Player is Perfect for Torrents!

Sony is at long last adding a dedicated media player application to the PlayStation 4, making the announcement by means of a blog before its E3 press conference. The media player allows video, music, and pictures to be streamed from PC or USB stick. PS4 users would be able to see the new application’s icon appear in their console’s content area, which can be basically selected to download the product from the PS store.  The app simply titled Media Player is available on PSN and can be downloaded by simply looking for Media Player tile. The application supports a number of different file formats and are


  • Visual: H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level 4.2
  • Audio: MP3, AAC LC, AC-3 (Dolby Digital)


  • Visual: MPEG4 ASP, H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile Level 4.2

These are perfect for handling files that just might have been downloaded from BitTorrent sites.

It was dependably strange to some PlayStation fans that PS4 didn’t launch with a media player, however on the other hand, the console was solely meant for gaming purposes and not as media gadget. Last August, Microsoft’s Xbox One included support for different file types  including MKV up till now, the best alternative for media-hungry PS4 users has been to use Plex to stream content (at a cost). A dedicated app gives less fuss: To play films or music on the console, users should simply connect their console to their home media server or plug in a USB stick with files on it. The ideal approach to take a break from every one of those newly announced games.
