    Media player starts automatically once you put a usb with a folder named "something" (I don't remember, it was Media or something like that) and put mp3's in it. It's explained somewhere around the system menus, and in the user's manual of the ps4.

    Integrated media player doesn't need psn connection.

    I have 4.01, I don't have a psn account. The system never connected to psn. If you put a folder called "Music" into a thumb drive, and put some mp3 files in there, when you put the thumb drive into the ps4, a media player app should appear, like a game. Once you disconnect the thumb drive, the app will disappear again.

    I think you need psn for that, sadly.
