As one of the most disappointing drawbacks from the official launch, Sony is shoring up the consumer’s issues with the PlayStation 4 this week. With the implementation of a new “Media Player” app, we can now play our media through USB or DLNA from your PC.

Through the use of LAN streaming via DLNA or USB drives, gamers who want to watch media on their PlayStation 4 can now enjoy a film they have stored on their computer through either USB or LAN streaming. As straightforward as this is, simply downloading the new “Media Player” application and having the files you want to stream be available on your network publicly will get you going. Here are the many file types ready for viewing on the PlayStation 4 through the new application.
