It's a brilliant idea to watch movies on PS4, but first-timers may fail, when trying to play DVD or Blu-ray disc on their PlayStation 4, because there's a specific procedure that needs to be taken. In this guide, I'll show you how to make your PS4 a disc player, and how to play DVD on PS4 without internet.

Tips. If your DVDs are region-locked, PS4 can’t play them even if you enabled the disc playback feature. Using a handy DVD ripper can effortlessly bypass region codes and rip the DVD to digital formats, which is a better way to watch DVD on PS4 or any other device.

Part 1. Does PS4 Play DVD and Blu-ray Discs?

Does PS4 play DVDs and Blu-rays? The answer is positive, you just insert the disc, and then select the DVD movie content from the content area. But your PS4 system must enable the disc playback feature over the Internet, one time only, before you can play any BDs or DVDs. After this feature is enabled, your PS4 system doesn't have to connect to the Internet to play BDs or DVDs.

Part 3. The Cleverest Way to Watch DVD on PS4

When wanting to watch movies on PS4, we should always steer clear of the possible damage that might come to your DVD discs and PS4 drive, reading/playback issues due to system bug or outdated PS4 version, and many other related issues coming from inserting a disc directly. And here's an ingenious idea - watching DVD movies on PS4 via USB. The best part is, no internet connection is needed – at all, even for first time users! We won't need to enable disc playback feature on PS4 as PS4 has native support of plug & play for USB flash drive. To do so, you just need to convert your DVD discs to portable digital formats so that we can put them on a USB flash drive and let PS4 read it.
