Convert and Transfer MP4 for Playback on PS4 Pro

Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro Console, better known as PS4 Pro, is not merely a game console running games at higher resolution, it is capable of outputting 4K graphics, HDR support, smoother and more stable framerates, and 4K video streaming. As a media streamer or player, PS4 Pro can play video and music files from a PC or USB stick. Can PS4 Pro play MP4 videos? Does PS4 Pro play MP4?

Although it's officially claimed that PS4 Pro supports the MP4 files, we might occasionally have troubles in playing an MP4 file on the PS4 Pro. Why Won't PS4 Pro Playback MP4 Video? That's because it only supports an MP4 file with the video codec of MPEG-4 AVC H.264 and MPEG-4 in the following technical specification: 

Video in MPEG-4 SP (Simple Profile) and audio in AAC LC (Low Complexity) format
Video in H.264/AVC HP (High Profile) and audio in AAC LC (Low Complexity) format
MPEG-2 TS format with video in H.264/AVC and audio in AAC LC (Low Complexity) format

While, MP4 is a container video format which may contain various video or audio codec. If the MP4 video is not encoded with PS4 Pro compatible codec (for example MP4 with 5.1 AAC audio), we will fail to stream MP4 to PS4 Pro or cannot play MP4 on PS4 Pro even if we have successfully transferred MP4 to PS4 Pro.
