This tutorial will show you how to set up MediaStreamer on PlayStation 4 by changing your PS4 DNS settings.
To set up MediaStreamer on your PlayStation 4, you will need to register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website. Alternatively, you can get your DDNS hostname and register the hostname on the ExpressVPN website.
Note: MediaStreamer DNS is not a VPN. It does not offer the same privacy and security benefits as a VPN.

1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website
Go to your ExpressVPN DNS settings, then enter your ExpressVPN credentials. Select Sign In.
Under IP address registration, click Register my IP address. If it already reads “registered” next to your IP address, there is no need to select this option again.
Toggle Automatically register my IP address on. This is recommended as it automatically tracks changes to your IP address.
If you have enabled Automatically register your IP address, you can keep your IP address updated by using the ExpressVPN app on your device or signing in to your ExpressVPN account occasionally.
2. Get your MediaStreamer IP address
Go to the ExpressVPN setup page for PlayStation. On the right, you will find the IP addresses for MediaStreamer.
Keep this browser window open. You will need this information for the setup later.
3. Configure the DNS servers on your PS4
Select Set Up Internet Connection.
For How do you want to connect to the network?, select Use Wi-Fi or Use a LAN Cable, depending on how your PlayStation is connected to the internet.
