PS4 Pro can play 4K video
Sony has released an update to the PS4’s media player application. With the update coming, the PS4 Pro will be able to play 4K video.
After the update the media player will be able to run 4K videos on an external storage device. However, the 4K video file must be in MP4 format. So for now MKV format is not supported. Sony has also announced that USB drives used as extra storage for PS4 games can not be used as a source for 4K video files.
In addition to the PS4 Pro, PlayStation VR owners will also be able to watch 4K VR video content after the update.
Although the update is nice, it should be noted that the 4K videos that the PS4 Pro users can still access are not very common.
