“Can PS4 play MP4? Why can’t my PS4 play MP4 video in the USB drive, but my friend's PS4 can play? Isn't the PS4’s Media Player Already Claiming that it allows MP4 movies to be played over Wi-Fi (DLNA) and USB? Who can help me? I’ll be very grateful.”
As a game lover, the most exciting thing is playing games at home. Nobody disturbs us, just enjoy the games. Generally speaking, we just need to insert the game disc into PS4 and connect PS4 to TV with HDMI cable.
However, buying the game disc is not the first choice for most people, most of us like to find and download some good game resources and make them into USB, just like Solia. On the one hand, we don’t need to insert game disc every time, on the other hand, we can play games at friends’ home, just need a USB drive.
But why can’t Solia play MP4 on PS4? Technical speaking, PS4 can play MP4, Blu-ray disc and DVD according to Sony Official. But we need to know that only special MP4 can be supported by PS4. Because MP4 is a container video format which may contain various video or audio codec.
The PS4 can only support playing MP4 files encoded with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile (AAC LC).
The MP4 can be encoded with these video and audio codes:
So we need to make sure MP4 video’s format is compatible with PS4 firstly. If it is not, we need to convert MP4 or other video formats to just skip to MP4 files encoded with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile (AAC LC). Below is the detail information, keep reading.
When it comes to converting MP4 to PS4 format, the Video Converter Software is necessary.

Extract audio from video, like extracting MP3 from MP4.

By the way, this software supports batch conversion, is it so cool?
Under normal conditions, we just need to insert USB drive into PS4 and then play the games.
Just in cases, I tell you one more thing maybe occurred on playing.
PS4 can read USB drive in exFAT or FAT32 while NTFS cannot. [Make sure your video is smaller than 4GB] The most common situation is PS4 can’t read USB drive, when it happens, you just need to format the USB drive.
