I guess the real question is, will PS5 support DLNA/UPnP one day? I hope so.
History has shown that Sony don't include support for it at launch, so it might take them a while to implement it.

Another angle is we can try to get the web interface working on PS5, but we will need testers for that. If you are interested, then please let us know what currently happens when you browse to the web interface on the PS5

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think the PS5 has a user accessible web browser due to exploits in webkit that have been used to hack the PS3 and PS4.

DLNA compatibility is shockingly absent from the PS5 out of the box. I realise that we got it almost ten months after the PS4's debut, but there are some facets of PS5 that make me wonder if we'll ever get it. The PS5 also lacks an internet browser, which the PS3 came with out of the box. Plex does not meet my expectations, and it seems to run poorly for me.

I think they will come up with a separate online service specifically for this.In any case, there is no news...

OR they will start giving support for this within the current support system.
