PS5 Media Gallery: How to Find Recorded Gameplay and Screenshots

The PlayStation 5 has some amazing built-in recording tools that allow you to capture gameplay clips and screenshots in 4K resolution with HDR color (including videos at 60 frames per second). But if you don’t know the PS5’s user interface very well – understandable since, as you know, it’s new and everything – you may have trouble finding these recordings so you can share them with the world.

The captured screenshots and videos are live in the PS5’s media gallery. On the main tab of the app, you’ll see thumbnails of your screenshots and clips, whether you took them yourself or in a game. If you’ve connected an external USB drive, you can look to the right in the drive’s folders for files that the PS5 is compatible with. (Please see our PS5 FAQ for specific information on playing media stored on an external drive.)

There are several ways to get to the media gallery, the icon of which looks like a camera in front of a screen. If you’ve used the app recently enough, it should be one of the 10 icons on the Games tab of the PS5 dashboard. (You won’t find it on the Media tab, which is where entertainment apps like Netflix and Spotify are streamed.) That’s the only way it shows up on that row of icons. The PS5 doesn’t let you customize the list or pin items.

How to find the PS5 Media Gallery app

If the media gallery is gone from the dashboard, there are other methods to bring it up. One way is to go into your game library – scroll to the right edge of the dashboard – and then press R1 to go to the Installed tab. Scroll to the bottom of the list of installed games and you will see four icons: PlayStation Plus, PlayStation Now, Media galleryund Remote Play.

You can also access the media gallery from the PS5 system settings menu. (To get to the settings, go to the upper right zone of the PS5 dashboard by pressing the triangle or using the left analog stick to navigate to it and then press the gear icon.) Go to the settings memory area, which you will see a breakdown of the items on the internal SSD of your PS5. The four categories there are games and apps, Media gallery, Saved data and others.

Finally, you can also access the media gallery from the PS5’s Create menu, which appears when you tap or hold the Create button on the DualSense controller (depending on your settings). Once you have entered the Create menu, navigate to the left side of the screen where you will see a thumbnail of your most recent screenshot or video. Click it to open a pop-up menu. A shortcut button labeled “Go to Media Gallery” appears.

There’s one more way to get to the same shortcut: if you’ve recently captured a screenshot or video clip, you can press the PlayStation button to bring up the PS5’s Control Center. If you scroll all the way to the right through your activity cards – the large boxes above the row of Control Center icons – there should be a card with your most recent survey. When you open this window you will get the same popup with the same link to “To Media Gallery”.

Once you’ve arrived at the media gallery, you can view all of your recordings, copy them to a USB drive (if you’ve inserted one), share them directly with external platforms like Twitter or YouTube, or delete them.
