Part 1: How to Play Blu-rays on PS4?

The Blu-ray disc formats supported by PS4 are BD-ROM and BD-R/RE (BDAV, BDMV). And to play a Blu-ray movie successfully, you had better update the PS4 software to the latest version first. The PS4 system must enable the disc playback feature over the internet, so you must allow the internet connection when it’s your first time to play a Blu-ray movie disc. It is very easy to play Blu-rays on PS4, and you can simply begin by inserting a Blu-ray disc.

Step 1: Turn on PS4 and log into your account if necessary.

Step 2: Insert your Blu-ray disc to the disc tray of your PS4.

Step 3: Then the dynamic menu will pop out. And then you just need to hit the “Start” icon on the screen to play the Blu-ray disc. (You should click “Yes” to allow the internet connection)

It is certainly simple to play Blu-ray discs on PS4, but sometimes you cannot open a Blu-ray movie disc on your PS4 smoothly. Sometimes it is because the disc is an “unrecognized Disc”, sometimes it is caused by the incompatibility of the disc format, and sometimes it is resulted from the region code constraint. While there is a perfect solution to deal with all these problems you meet, and that is to rip the Blu-ray to a PS4 supported format with DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper.
