Does it play real dts? i did play a movie with dts sound. Is there btw also an option when you can fast forward or rewind just like the ps3?

It seems that PS4 doesn't support fast-forwarding or rewinding videos that are transcoded, and we do need to transcode DTS since PS4 doesn't support it

So the dts becomes ac3 then? When you play an movie with dts on the ps4.

The ps3 support real dts right?

The fact that it sorts everything alphabetically rules out me using it for audio at the moment, and video support is somewhat limited. Good job I've got ps3s in every room.

Oh, and the fact that you can't see anything but the Title of the track or video, no Author, time etc.

Unless Sony updates Media Player to not suck, maybe every stream started on a PS4 should have a 10 second video first saying "contact Sony at <whatever> to ask for the following features in their media player if you were expecting them to work".

It feels weird listing something this crippled as supported.
