PS4 System Update 1.70 is Live

The app didn't update automatically for me as well, but it's on the playstore if you need it.

I'm in a small non-eurozone EU country, on a phone that is not very popular. Playstore does not show this app to be officially compatible with my device.

So... APK is my only choice.

Can ShareFactory videos be recorded on the PS4 hard drive? I dont want to upload them to FB.
 
Loading of the friends list has improved as well. I have a little over 200 PSN friends, and previously scrolling quickly through it would cause names and icons further down the list to become blank, such that even when you stopped scrolling they would never load unless you left the menu and came back. This was 100% reproducible for me. The 1.70 update has fixed it; you can still get to a point where the names and icons are blank as you're scrolling through, but as soon as you stop scrolling they all load in properly.

Can you now change where you appear on the screen on Twitch? I can't remember seeing this before:

That is the PC version seeing as he has cropped himself into the stream and the game is using xbox controller icons.

Ah that's a bummer. I hope someone can help you out, sorry.

My PS4 is unavailable for the next few days - does anyone know if that horrible lag is gone when starting the console between the PS logo and the health warning?

Still jerky on the health warning but the OS is otherwise smoother.

Loading app icons was already quicker with my SSD but it's even smoother now.

- there also seems to be an option to automatically send error reports to Sony
- store, What's New, and overall UI seems to load faster

Not testing out Sharefactory until we get youtube uploading. C'mon already, Sony.

All in all, decent update. Now focus on the non-sharing stuff plz.
Yeah I put a share vid up on YouTube trough USB (which was all pretty quick) but it would be nice to upload directly. Maybe YouTube is holding out doesn't make sense why we don't have it as an option yet.

You forgot the most important stealth update, according to this post they fixed the Share bug:

ok I just did another test on the 15 min share bug. played BF4 for about 25 minutes and hit Share, finally! the LAST 15 minutes were saved correctly. I'm going to try again tomorrow with a longer 2+ hour session.

Might need further confirmation though.

Come on guys, get a Sharefactory thread going! I'd love to see all the videos in one place ... and yes, this is the second time I've asked!

There's also timestamps on the "Whats New" section. It tells you the day and time now.

Really mad about the controller dimming.
I would have liked a slider like the PC custom driver, it's still too bright IMO.
 
Has anyone mentioned the share recordings video limits yet?

You can record in these increments.

1 minutes
3 minutes
5 minutes
10 minutes
15 minutes

Some people have a receiver which supports 7.1 but only have 5.1 speakers plugged in. Some of those people had issues where the PS4 would still send a 7.1 signal out even though not all of this speakers were plugged in, so they wouldn't hear all the audio. This just forces the PS4 to only send a 5.1 signal.

Shouldn't receivers handle that for you? I have a 7.1 receiver with 5.1 speakers attached and it just maps the sound to whatever speakers it's been set up to use. I don't miss any audio.

Or do some people have quirky or temperamental systems?

it's HDMI. Lots of people have quirky/temperamental setups. It is generally a pain in the ass.
