As a game lover, the most exciting thing is playing games on home. Nobody disturbs us, just enjoy the games.
Generally speaking, we just need to insert game disc into PS4 and connect PS4 to TV with USB. Easy operations, doesn’t it?
Game disc is most peoples’ choice, but I’d like to find some good game resources and make them into file, so that I can save my games on computer or USB drive. On the one hand, I don’t need to insert disc every time, on the other hand, I can play my games on friends’ home, just need a USB drive.

Now, we take play MP4 file on PS4 as an example.
Technical speaking, PS4 can play MP4. But we need to know that only special MP4 can be supported by PS4. [MP4 is a container video format which may contain various video or audio codec.]
