How to Stream DLNA Video to PlayStation 4

An easy and quick way to access DLNA on your PS4.

Sony was taken aback by the strong support for DLNA video on the PlayStation 4 and promised that it would be arriving in the second firmware update for the console. There is a way to get DLNA video streaming on to your console right now though.

The above video basically summarizes the process as follows:

Download Plex Media Server from https://my.plexapp.com/downloads and set up your media before signing into Plex through the Settings. Then, you navigate to https://my.plexapp.com/ on your PS4 through the browser and sign-in. Head to your media server and voila. You have access to all your DLNA media.

Keep in mind that it’s not guaranteed to work (there’s a fair amount of skepticism in the comments section for the video as well), so use this method at your own discretion. Regardless, for those who it works for, it beats waiting for the firmware update. Share your thoughts on the success of this method below.

    This isn’t DLNA, this is crap.

    Might be able to do the same thing by installing apache and putting a folder with all the files in the base folder where the www publishing is done – and it might work better?

      problem there would be the lack of codecs on the ps4 plex will re encode on the fly for you if the system its playing on dose not support the codec of the file

    Like someone says, it does work. Actually I lmight like it better than the PS3 DLNA. It remembers you’re spot in the video if you leave or watch it on another device. No problems with the video playback. Looks like I’m keeping my PS4.
