Searching the web, we can know PS4's Media Player v2.50 rolls out support for 360-degree videos in MKV, AVI, MP4, MPEG2 PS, MPEG2 TS, and AVCHD formats. And using a VR player like VLC or Dimo and a PSVR HDMI cable plugged on your PC, you can watch 3D Side-by-side (SBS) videos like MKV, MP4 on your PS VR too.
