The PS4 finally has a Media Player..

The PS4’s new Media Player is out and you should now be able to download.  You should finally able to transforms the PS4 into a media center, allowing for playback of movies and music over both wi-fi and USB. Now the media center app is very basic and does not play everything, but its a start in the right direction. Let hope PlayStation will continue adding more support to the Media Player.

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.
