Does anybody know if the PS4 can play movies saved on a data DVD disc or on USB memory stick?

I've tried looking on Google but a lot of the answers are old from the PS4 release date, so not sure if updates have been released to allow this.

Or is there any other way of playing avi or mp4 files on the PS4?

Thanks

if its anything like the ps3 then you should be able to play them from your memory stick. if not you can download 'freemake file converter' and it will convert it for the technology you want it to play on

I know that the official update for 2.0 says music playback including mp4 (for music) however, i don't beleieve there is an official way to playback those movies.

PS3 is an awesome media machine considering its price and the fact that it isn't it's primary function. Ps4 no doubt didn't follow that route to protect sony's revenue in the movie company.

Why don't you just burn a data disk and put a couple of different movie file types on a memory stick and try it yourself
