    BiteYourPlayer v1.0 Beta PS4 Media Player HTML Mod is Released


    Following up on How to Play Media Files on Your PS4 by $n!pR, today Italian PlayStation 4 developers BiteYourConsole have created BiteYourPlayer v1.0 Beta which is a PS4 Media Player HTML Mod with details below.

    Download: hfs.rar (Http File Server v2.2f - no setup) / BiteYourPlayer.rar

    To quote, roughly translated: The new PlayStation 4 is equipped with a web browser from all over, maybe one of the fastest on a console from the living room, and so that BiteYourConsole jumped at the potential offered by a language such as HTML5.

    With a speech of this magnitude we were able to make a simple but potential movie player in mp4 format (format commonly used for watching movies via smartphone and PlayStation Portable).

    To run the application needs a Http Server, we have chosen HTTP File Server (HFS) that once started will allow us to be able to watch our video from any device connected to our Wi-Fi network.

    Configuration

    Download the portable version of the HFS program, run it and drag the contents of the file into the window Biteyourplayer.rar Virtual File System.

    To be able to watch a movie on the PlayStation 4 via the Web browser does not have to do is drag the movie to the video folder, the files will have the mp4 format and must be renamed to PS4.

    After the configuration, there is nothing left to start the server and log on with the IP of your console through the browser (eg 192.168.1.87:7000 / index.html).

    Thanks to $n!PR for the idea and Michael Varaquez for having edited the html code.

    Finally, below is a How To Play Your Personal Music Collection On PS4 video guide as follows:

    I know a lot of people wont want to be bothered with this, but take the type of situation, where you only have one PC in your house and it is used by the entire family, say someone wants to use that computer, while you want to listen some music, this would be an ideal situation, here is the tutorial or guide on how to do it:

    Nice temporary solution for those with no alternative. This will ultimately be useless if DLNA playback is indeed being worked on. Hopefully this is the case.

    A little off topic, but with no Flash support the browser still feels incredibly crippled. Flash is still very heavily used, especially for media on the web. I'm really disappointed in Adobe for not continuing support for it on non PC devices.

    If its just a media server for MP4 movies then there are thousands of them all for different systems.

    Even my NAS has a built in server that works great on the WiiU and I guess it'll work the same for the PS4. It works on the PS3 so I cant see why it wont work on the PS4.

    It doesn't work on the Vita or 3DS as they doesn't support MP4 in the browser.

    You're missing the point here - PS4 doesn't play ANY kaind of media (music or video or pictures) from USB drives, DVDs / BDs or via network from DLNA sources hence this trick to play it via web browser.

    Actually, you CAN play BD movies on the PS4 (tried with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World)

    Its such a shame this is required to play media. I had hoped for all the ps3 media capabilities to carry over to the ps4, with a lot of improvements to boot.
