With a 4k (3840x2160p) display and lossless 7.1 channel, PS4 makes it easy for you to watch movies, play music videos and even play audio files as a home media center. (Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4) But there are certain formats like image files like ISO or IFO, folder structures such as VIDEO_TS or BDMV or some VIDEO_TS.VOB files from DVD folder that the PS4 does not supports. Here is a guide on how to deal with video files in Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV formats using PS4.
In fact, Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV are “cloning” the structure and content from a DVD or Blu-Ray optical disc. You can play your files on Blu-ray, DVD Player or VLC Player, however these formats hide content behind built-in menu systems which just don’t fit into the idea behind the PS4 ecosystem.
In order to play Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV on PS4, you have to convert them into the PS4 format. For this Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate is the right choice for you. Built-in 200+ video codecs and audio codecs, it converts virtually any video file (Video_TS, VOB, ISO, IFO, BDMV, H.265, MP4, MKV,AVI, VOB, Tivo, etc) to PS4 supported video formats without needing to know any codec, resolution, bit rate, etc in advance. Not only you can convert your video but you can also split it into small clips and edit the video too. Following the intuitive interface, even a novice can finish video conversion in just a few clicks! Converting Video_TS/VOB/ISO/IFO/BDMV into PS4 format becomes easier by using Pavtube.

If your source video is in 1080p and you want to keep 1080p resolution as source movie, you can choose PSP/PS3 > PS3 Video (1080P) MPEG-4(*.mp4) for PS4 Media Server.
