I would regularly use my PS3 to play movie files of various types via USB storage device, mainly .mp4 or .avi files. I would like to be able to do the same with my PS4 but I can't find any way to access any of the files on the USB stick when I plug it in to the console.

It is possible to play these movie files on the PS4?

You can play them off a flash drive if you put them in a folder named, "MUSIC" in the root directory. I am unsure if it is capitalized or not but mine always is.
