The PlayStation 4 has finally added a Media Player to its list of apps, allowing owners of Sony's game console to play user-created videos, audio and images. Additionally, the PlayStation Vue TV service is expanding to two more US cities, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Of the new Media Player, Sony says:
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!
The player supports MKV, AVI, MP4, and MPEG-2 TS formats for video, JPEG, BMP and PNG formats for images and MP3 and AAC (M4A) audio formats.
The expansion of the PlayStation Vue service to LA and San Francisco follows its initial launch in New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia. Sony says more cities will be added to the list in the coming months.
