When I heard a qualified yes to the question that does PS4 play 4K DVDs, I was overjoyed, because I had the chance to play my favorite 4K DVD disc again without a DVD player. To my disappointment, I couldn’t play the disc properly with PS4, and up to now, I don’t understand what to do. I can’t dispose of the issue by myself. Could someone help me? Thanks a lot.
The PlayStation 4 (PS4) is an eighth-generation home video game console developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It can be used broadly due to its advanced technology. It is not just a game console for users to play games. There are also ten functions as below that you can refer to.
1. Media streaming
3. PlayStation Music with Spotify
4. Sky Go support
5. USB playback
6. BRAVIA TV Player
7. PlayMemories Online
8. 3D Blu-ray
9. Dolby Atmos
10. TV box sets
Does PS4 play 4K DVDs? You can get an affirmative answer.
The fifth function, that PS4 supports USB playback, suggests that we can play Blu-ray or DVD stored in USB with PS4.
Actually, there's a simpler way. If you want to play Blu-ray discs or DVD discs, you can directly insert it for playing. But you may not be able to play the disc smoothly due to some playback errors. I believe you must have tried a simple way. And it’s important to note that you can’t regard PS4 as a 4K DVD player.
First of all, we should figure out what is 4K (or 4K resolution). The standard 4k resolution can reach 4096 × 2160 pixels locally, while the ultra-high definition (UHD) is slightly lower, with a resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels. But sometimes 4K is equal to UHD, because there is no obvious difference between the two resolutions, and they can bring the same effect.
4K DVD means that it will bring more display details, more realistic texture and more smoothness. 4K can make the image more attractive. Besides, 4K brings high pixel density to make the structure of the image itself clearer, allowing users to have a more advanced experience.
As PS4 can’t play 4K DVD disc. So I recommend you to use f2fsoft Blu-ray Ripper to rip and convert 4K DVDs to PS4 or PS4 compatible formats and then play the converted 4K DVD movies on PS4 without worrying any playback errors. f2fsoft Blu-ray Ripper is the top-rated software. It can rip Blu-ray/ DVD disc, Blu-ray/ DVD folders, and ISO image files. It can assist you perfectly. You won’t lose the original quality and you won’t wait for a long time to play 4K DVDs with PS4. Here are the detailed steps.
Step1: Click “Download for Win” or “Download for Mac” above. Download and install f2fsoft Blu-ray Ripper software on your computer.
Step2: Add 4K DVD files
Start up this software. Put 4K DVD disc into the DVD drive on your computer. Add 4K DVD files by clicking Add Blu-ray/DVD button or directly drag the file to the center of the interface.
Step3: Editing videos as you like.
When you see three buttons on the main interface of the software. Click the second button, on the right of Add Blu-ray/DVD button. In the drop list click Edit to customize the video according to your own beauty-appreciation, including video codec, bit rate, aspect ratio, frame rate, channel, etc.
Step4: Set the profile format.
In the drop list, click Change> Format > Device > Sony > PS4.
Step5: Convert 4K video to PS4.
Return to the main interface where you need to click the green Convert button.
When you have already changed the 4K video format, you need to copy the converted 4K DVD into the USB drive. Then insert the USB to the PS4. This is the whole process of playing 4K DVD with PS4.
