I've had this problem,  some videos worked if i pressed the play button in the lower left corner rather than clicking the large play icon whilst hovering over the video image itself.  Also you can set up a web server to stream media content over your home network to your ps4 web browser(if you're really anxious to run file formats  in your last sentence)

The flash compatability of the PS4 browser is an issue that needs to be resolved ASAP IMO.

They've basically taken out Flash support and left it with html5 only, a second rate browser
