    New PS4 update incoming, 'Share' enhancements + more

    Just seen this over at the EU Blog:

    New PS4 update to add SHARE enhancements and HDCP Off

    Big new firmware update due in the coming weeks – find out what’s included

    Here at PlayStation, we listen closely to your comments and requests, which are weighted heavily when looking at the future of our platforms. Since PlayStation 4 launched, we’ve heard a lot of great feedback from you about what you like with the platform and what you’d like to see us work on. I’m happy to report that, as a direct result of your feedback, we’ll soon be bringing some of your most-requested features to PS4 with a system software update in the upcoming weeks. These features and additions will help make your PS4 even more socially connected by further enabling you to customise your most epic gaming moments and granting even more options to show them to your friends.

    This upcoming update will add a rich video editor with a simple tool to personalise your video clips, and you’ll also be able to export to and save the videos and screenshots you create by pressing the SHARE button to a USB drive. In addition, this update will add an HDCP off option for capturing gameplay via HDMI, a feature we’ve previously said would come after launch.

    We recognise that some gamers want to record and share longer clips of their gameplay sessions, and we’re excited to deliver this option with PS4. There’s a lot more coming in this update as well, so stay tuned for more — there will be plenty in the update to excite everyone.

    As part of a separate system software update in the future, we have been working with our partners at Twitch and Ustream, and will also be adding the ability for Twitch broadcasts to be archived – another highly requested feature among PS4 fans who are taking advantage of the SHARE button features. These broadcasts will be also provided with a higher resolution of 720p, so PS4 fans can enjoy live broadcasts with clearer images. We’ll have more to come on these updates and more in the coming weeks.

    Headline features:
    - Rich video editor
    - HDCP off option for capturing gameplay via HDMI
    - Export captures to USB
    - More features coming in future

    Further down it says a later update will include Twitch archiving and 720p stream:

    These broadcasts will be also provided with a higher resolution of 720p, so PS4 fans can enjoy live broadcasts with clearer images.

    Beat me to it as well This is a very important update!

    Edit: export to USB - no more compressed Facebook pictures and jump-through-hoops methods to get lossless pictures of PS4 footage!

    Hopefully the Share footage will record where it is meant to as well now, i.e, the last 15 minutes from pressing the button!
    Not the last 15 minutes 3 hours ago

    Why wait longer when they can just do it with this update?

    How long's a piece of string... It's obviously not ready for this update which is why they said it's part of a separate system update as at a guess they are still working on it.

    So instead of 15minutes we might be seeing 30? I assume with dedicated hardware we should essentially have unlimited recording.
    -720P twitch streaming via an update *Boom* Headshot.

    Post on the blog if you want more answers (which I'm sure they will dodge anyway), it'll come when they decide and ready. Other than what is in black and white from the quoted article there is no more on it so we're just guessing as to why it maybe in a different update.

    No, that's a typical development cycle. Smaller updates mean less buggy code. We do the same thing where I work.

    Yes! Finally you're going to be able to export captures to USB. I've been waiting for that feature for some time now.

    Certainly beats going through FB, downloading to PC and uploading to YouTube that's for sure!

    Looking forward to the editor/personalization feature

    i wonder if with this update you can plug in a wifi external drive, that way you can keep it plugged in and access your videos and screenshots with your computer while not having to unplug the plug in to your computer.

    this is great. i'm glad to see they keep improving things and making the ps4 capabilities better.

    Super stoked for the line: "There’s a lot more coming in this update as well, so stay tuned for more—there will be plenty in the update to excite everyone."

    Hopefully this includes Music and Video codec support like on PS3 and all the other stuff they didn't add in that the PS3 could do...just get it all out of the way now! =)

    $#@!ing fantastic, All I wanted.

    Reintegrate media/video playback from hard drive, With media playback on browsers with flash/divx/avi/mkv codec and my ps3 can finally retire.


    Surprisingly, I can already stream mp4 files from places like icefilm and movreel with ps4 browser.


    Edit: Hopefully they sneak some sexy stability in too. ;P

    I assume the usb thing will also allow us to also play the file via our usb. Hope it includes general media playback via usb too.

    My tv has usb video playback too, but i like how i can watch iplayer and play games at night, with headphones plugged into the controller. And not having a 5 metre wired traipsing across the room.


    Also my TV is not connected to the internet so it's impossible to stream or download video directly. But my ps4 can stream from various sites already, a few codecs Added and I'm sorted.

    I know man i hated that Facebook compressed the quality so small a 30mb file would come out less then 10mb i stopped posting videos because of that but at least now we will get some proper gameplay video quality.
