Stream and Play ISO Files on PS4 with USB Drive, DLNA or Media Server

Can PS4 Stream DVD ISO?

If I ripped a few dvd's that I own. Ripped these as DVD ISO's. Will the PS4 be able to stream these from a pc that is running universal media server? I know the PS3 could do this but curious if the PS4 will do the same. I know that PS4 will stream mp4, ect, but wasn't sure about DVD ISO's. Thanks
