  • Can I play movie files on PS4? Colin

    I would regularly use my PS3 to play movie files of various types via USB storage device, mainly .mp4 or .avi files. I would like to be able to do the same with my PS4 but I can't find any way to access any of the files on the USB stick when I plug it in to the console.

    It is possible to play these movie files on the PS4?

  • No.

    Currently, this is not possible. The media capabilities of the PS4 aren't as advanced as those of it's predecessor, yet.

  • A friend had been saving games on his 360 using a USB drive. He moved it to a different 360 and it reformatted the USB for use, deleting his files. I suggested he use some data recovery software, but then it turns out the .svg saved game files aren't visible on windows. I wasn't able to find anything concrete on google, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • I tried using the mic that came with the PS4, but I didn't like the way that it fit in my ear. Instead, I opted to buy a pair of earbud headphones that included a mic. I plugged it into my DS4, but I only hear audio out of the left earbud. I would be okay with this, except the mic on this pair of headphones is attached to the wire to the right earbud. Is there any way to get the PS4 to push VOIP chat through the opposite or both headphones?

  • I use the Official PowerA Charging Dock to charge my DS4 controllers (2), it's very close to the PS4. The story so far: I charged my controllers to 100% (~10pm), put my PS4 in standy-by mode (orange light), shutdown my controllers and left Infamous SS downloading. The next day I came to play (~17:30pm) and both controllers were all dead, near 0% battery, how is that possible?

  • I had to create a new Origin account on my PS4 (there was no option to login) for the Ultimate Team feature.

  • My Xbox 360 USB stick came up corrupted after I tried to bring over my dad's Forza Motorsport 3 save files as well as the Motorsport Legends Car and Track Pack.

Can someone please tell me how to get those files back onto a different USB from my computer?

  • Is it possible to do this? I have ps4 with madden 25 and the season pass attached to my psn account. However I don't seem to be able to get the benefits on the ps4. I heard mixed things that it works/some things work on next gen with the season pass.

  • which I want to be able to access those files Now, I would have thought this would make copying PS2 save files to my PC in a format PCSX2 can read would be a simple task, but apparently not. I haven't found PC drivers for the PS2 card adapter (amazingly, it's USB and it seems prime for hacking), so instead I copied over the PS2 saves from the PS3 onto a thumbstick as .PSV files. I found a utility..., but neither seems to know what to do with the files output by PSV exporter. So, given my equipment or a simply a PSV file, what software do I need to copy my "real" PS2 saves into some format PCSX2 can read?

  • Similar to Using a standard dynamic microphone (3.5mm male mini jack) + a 3.5=>2.5 adapter with an Xbox 360, I would like to know if I can use my dynamic microphone (3.5mm male mini-jack, actually XLR + XLR=>mj adapter) with a Playstation 3, and how ? (it is a slim PS3 I have) I have heard of 2*female 2.5mm mini-jack => male USB adapters, are there any official ones or some known to be working with a slim after the USB-restriction update ?
