Scrotastic Method: DarthBart: Normally I do, but sometimes what I'm looking for isn't in a codec that my ps3 likes. And a couple of times as of late, I've grabbed collections of something and it was a mix of file formats.If I wanted to watch them on my PC, sure. I watch things via my ps3 and it is very picky about codecs and containers. The dlna server I use has support for on-the-fly transcoding but the server it runs on isn't fast enough for it.

All a'y'all worried about PS3 compatibility are SERIOUSLY missing out. Behold, your grail:

That's what I use.

Oh, then the problem isn't "a codec your PS3 likes," it's a file that PS3 Media Server can't transcode correctly. If that's what's happening, do three things:

-- Make sure your codecs are in order. New stuff, good stuff, etc.

-- Make sure the program is set to default the good stuff to transcode, not some exotic software that's barely ever going to work. Check the PS3MS fforums for the safe bets.

-- If all that fails and a file just won't play, use AviMUX (http://www.alexander-noe.com/video/amg/) to re-encode, which fixes an audio bitrate labeling problem that's usually the culprit...and then use TSMuxer (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/tsMuxeR ) to re-encode as a .m2ts file so PS3MS doesn't even have to transcode.

I donwload from all kinds of dark corners of the internet, and with the three steps above, I think the only stuff I've never been able to get working are old .flvs of HBO's Hard Knocks. Even the crankiest Blu-ray rips come into line when you re-encode the MKV with AviMux and then put it into a .m2ts.

IIRC there was a version of virtual dub that supported decoding and re-encoding flv's to a more usable avi, for what it's worth.


I've been busy working, but I meant to ask in this thread.

I have used nothing but CCCP for a while, and mostly there isn't a problem, but some of my files don't like skipping ahead when I click on the progress bar. I was wondering anyone has a lead another codec pack, or if VLC has it's own library.(IE so i wouldn't have to uninstall cccp and can use for the videos it does work on)
(working on the road so i can even test this on my primary machine on the video's i know have the problem)

I can give up using the old school Media Player, but I've grown to like it(mouse wheel volume, double click full screen, and how to edit the sync for videos that are off) so I'd rather avoid if at all possible.

/or possibly if the setting is something I can fix
//only asking cause it seems there are a lot of people here smarter and more informed than me

No, it's that unless I find a file that the ps3 likes natively, it has to transcode with mencoder and my server isn't fast enough to do that in realtime.

When I first discovered PS3MS I was still running a dual-core Athlon because I don't game so why not. Not long after, I had a six-core 3.3ghz black edition and 12GB RAM. Because 1080p :)

You could always use AVIMux and tsMuxer as a I describe above, turn all your .mkvs into .m2ts files, and then Mencoder is irrelevant -- the PS3 does .m2ts natively so the server won't be the problem. That process takes about 5 minutes (longer with a slower proc) and doesn't always accept every file, but that could help you out. Here's directions...but I use AVIMux first because most files have an "unknown" audio bitrate and that can cause errors, and AVIMux "puts that info in" or whatever the hell is correct language there.

Check out my sweet codec example below:

Look at that! That's the entire stream of Firefly s1e1 reduced to one single bit...

...it's in the 1 state, of course.
