Watch Fusion Videos on PS4?

Hi Community, Great to read all your Posts! Thanks a lot!

 

I'm searching for a possibility to view Fusion Videos on PS4 Pro with VR. So far I did some tests, not really successful but perhaps someone can help.

 

All tests with latest Firmware and exports from Fusion Studio 1.1 on macOS 10.13.4.

 

(1) Codec: CineForm, Resolution: 5.2K, Audio: 360, D.Warp: On

File is not recognized by PS4

 

(2) Codec: H.264, Resolution: 4K, Audio: 360, D.Warp: On  

File is recognized by PS4 and starts playing BUT displays sound not supported

 

(3) Codec: H.264, Resolution: 4K, Audio: Stereo, D.Warp: On

File is not recognized by PS4

 

Did someone find a possibility? Primary for Mac but also welcome for Win 10.

 

//Thx a lot! Kate

Re: Watch Fusion Videos on PS4?

Hi Kate,

 

Have you tried a H.265 codec out of Premiere Pro/After Effects?

I'm just guessing. I'll run some tests tonight and post back on here if I can get a working version. The other alternative is Youtube upload I suppose?

Re: Watch Fusion Videos on PS4?

I have no H.265 as an option, cause I did not run Adobe Premiere... also not avalilable in Adobe Media Encoder...

 

Any help appeciated!

Re: Watch Fusion Videos on PS4?

Hi,

 

if a solution is still needed here is my solution.

 

Today I've bought me also the fusion an was trying to get it running on the PS4 VR.

 

1. Load your Video into the GoPro Fusion Studio

2. Render it to the YouTube format -> the Output of this conversion is a VR mp4 file

3. Move the converted mp4 onto an USB-Stick or drive

4. Connect the stick or drive with the PS4

5. Start the PS4 VR Media Player

6. Go to the Media Player options-Menu and turn on the VR-Mode (as default it is switched off)

7. Start the MP4 from the Stick or drive via the Media-Player

8. Enjoy your movie

 

My First impression is good but the sound seems not to be converted into the file

Re: Watch Fusion Videos on PS4?

The Chosen Codec has to be the H264 so that only 4k is usable on the PS4. The sound is is still not available.
If you upload the Video on Youtube as a private Video, than the sound is available.

Thank you very much for your reply!

 

I tested all export possibilities in Fusion Studio 1.3 on Mac (latest OS) and there is no chance to get audio working on the PS4.

Re: Watch Fusion Videos on PS4?

I tried the following and am able to view the gopro fusion content on ps4 vr along with audio

 

1. Use gopro fusion studio with the following render settings - 'Youtube' + 4k ( this is not critical ) + stereo 

 

It is important that the setting is in Youtube and audio output should be set to stereo (not 3d). Video output set to Youtube is in H.264 format which is supported by Media Player in ps4 vr

 

2. Use 'VideoSolo Video Converter Ultimate' and set the output Profile to 'PS4 H.264 HD Video' and then convert. 

 

 

 

3. The resultant file to be put in a Folder in a USB drive or hard drive and plug the drive into ps4. Use Media Player in ps4 to access the files. It is important to keep the file in a folder, else Media Player will not recognize the file

 

4. Once inside Media Player, turn VR Guide to ON. This menu pops up when the options button on the ps4 remote is pressed. 

 

5. Access your file. The video should play on VR and audio should be working as well. I tried several options and this worked for me today
