My son will be 4 in Nov & we are struggling with the same thing. We've tried books, videos, rewards, charts, everything. He either isn't interested in them or gets too distracted by them that he doesn't go. We are homeschooling so I don't have the added pressure of school starting. For us, it seems to be a control issue. I wish I had an answer for you but your not alone in your frustrations.

I have a four year old boy as well he did as yours is.take a kids book with you and him everytime he goes to the potty don't leave bathrrom till the book is read all the way.This teaches him patience to sit on pot and his mind is more on the story then the potty also have him find certain things on each page.Helped my son i brought toy story one of his favorite movies and read and asked him were this is on a page.finally end of may he pooed in potty and my whole family husband and siblings along with grandpa(he lives next door)made a big deal out of it and then when he was done i let him pick stickers so to put on his dresser.I hope this helps you good luck.
