Why does this keep happening!
Sony have removed DLNA, MP3 compatibility and CD playback from the PS4! Expect there's going to be a few disappointed forumites as many use it for more than just games
Do you use Internet Explorer?

Yep using IE at work
Depending on version, compatibility mode can fix it:
Otherwise, try a proper browser like Chrome or Firefox
Hmm. I may have just switched back to Xbox in that case (assuming that "it" can do these things).
Massively stupid from Sony IMO.

I would but don't think work will let me
They let you post here though
Which version of IE is it?
It's IE 9 Yeah they don't mind use of the internet but the system stops you from downloading any files so won't be able to install another browser. Shame because I use Chrome at home and much prefer it
EDIT: The disappearing post only seems to occur if I start a new thread
Correct, yes, but I think it's resolved by turning on compatibility mode in IE9. It's a once-only click, give it a go.
I did it years ago, how difficault and complicated can it be.

Yes, have just read through the mammoth FAQ blog, and it does specifically confirm the PS4 can't play CDs or MP3s. No mention of any other music format is made though (ALAC, FLAC, AAC etc. etc.), so we need to wait and see what this means. They're heavily pushing their "Music Unlimited" service, which you can use to stream music during gaming - not too surprising but if this is the only option, I can expect quite a lot of backlash over this.
So many things are still quite unclear and a lot of assumptions are being made by the media outlets e.g. many are reporting that USB storage cannot be used at all, but this isn't the case i.e. the FAQ specifically states that USB storage cannot be used to expand the PS4's storage i.e. be used to store installed games etc. It can however be used to install system updates (this is covered later on in the FAQ), so clearly it does support USB storage in some capacity, so we need some more clarity on exactly what USB storage can and cannot be used for. (NB - worth noting that, like the PS3, you can replace the internal hard disk for a larger one yourself, meaning it will be easy to whack in a 1 TB drive to give you a lot more storage for installing games - as per the Xbox 360, Microsoft will not let you do this).
I think the same is therefore true on playback of local music and videos. As I've said elsewhere, the one advantage we of the UK have with the release date being 2 weeks after the US date is, we'll get all the answers from people who actually have the device in their hands prior to making the decision to purchase or not.

@ JD & BigBoss - thanks for the tips
Think it's an interesting move from Sony. They marketed the PS3 as a multimedia device which won it some favour in the non-gaming press (like What Hifi) but it'll be hard to push this now especially without MP3 compatibility which almost everyone uses. Presumably it'll reduce the cost of manufacturing each unit though
It's a weird decision, which I think is mostly driven by attempting to drive people towards subscribing to the "Music Unlimited" service (have to say I'm a little tempted having looked into it - if I could stream it to Sonos it would be a no brainer given it would be half the cost of Spotify).
Worth remembering, we don't know the Xbox One's capabilities on this yet. But we do know that Microsoft currently charge people for the Xbox Gold membership to use online services like Netflix and this will likely continue to the Xbox One, whereas we know online streaming services can be accessed without a PS Plus membership on PS4.
So there's no clear cut winner in terms of the best mutlimedia device at this stage - we just need to wait a few months and see where we are once the dust has cleared!
I have a years subscription to Music Unlimited which was worth it for the knockdown price. But I still pay for Spotify...
Spotify is generally better quality, the software is better and has gapless playback.
The Sony product is very slow in comparison. And even if they claim 320 Kbps, I have definitely identified certain albums where the quality is lacking.
The subscription for online services is a puzzler, but I thing moot for many, as to get the most out of the consoles, you'll need to pay.
