  • Fixing PS3 MP4 playback on Firmware 4.11 quick_dry

    I have just updated my PS3 to firmware 4.11 and it no longer plays MP4/M4V files. (via DLNA using PS3 MediaServer).

    The update to the firmware is the only change in the environment.

    Is this a known issue, and will files need to be re-encoded differently to work? (AVI files do play fine.)

  • I updated from PS3 MediaServer 1.50 to 1.50.1 and it worked straight away.

  • Okay, I have the following: PS2 memory cards with saves from PS2 PS2 memory card adapter for PS3 PS3 which can read those files No PS2 or fat PS3 anymore, which is why I use... PCSX2 emulator which I want to be able to access those files Now, I would have thought this would make copying PS2 save files to my PC in a format PCSX2 can read would be a simple task, but apparently not. I haven't found PC drivers for the PS2 card adapter (amazingly, it's USB and it seems prime for hacking), so instead I copied over the PS2 saves from the PS3 onto a thumbstick as .PSV files. I found a utility

  • I need some enlightenment here. I owned my PS3 like 2 years ago, but it was broken, I can't turn it on. So I bought a 2nd hand PS3 from a different person. My old PS3 has all the saved data and there is one downloaded game in it. I have searched on the Net on how to transfer saved games and all, but all requires the other PS3 to be still functional and mine doesn't work anymore. I heard placing the hard disk drive on the new PS3 won't work either since they are encrypted and if I want to use it, I have to format it? I need clarification here and I'd love to know if there are any other ways

  • My fat 80GB PS3 suddenly stopped recognizing gaming and BD movie disks. I don't know if this is a hell of a coincidence but it started to happen after upgrading to the 3.70 firmware. Has anybody been facing the same problem? Are there any fixes to this issue?

  • I'm having an interesting problem with my roommate's PS3. It was working relatively fine until I changed the router password. When I attempted to change the network configuration for the PS3 to use the new password, everything went to hell. First, I had an amazing time trying to get the PS3 to even connect to the router (remember, the only setting changed was the password, same algorithm, etc... thing that has changed recently was the password and the PS3 seems to be convinced the network is fine. In fact, it reports a better connection than my laptop gets. Even the in-game network quality

  • 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?

  • I was wondering if is it possible to use my original PSOne saved games (in particular, from Final Fantasy VII, VIII, IX and Tactics) on the digital games downloaded from the PlayStation Store. Obviously after transfering these save files via the PS3 Memory Card adapter.

  • I just purchased a new Samsung UN55ES7003 to replace an older 46" model (LN46A650). Images originating from my DirecTV DVR (1080i and lower) seem to be fine, but something's happening between the PS3... in the bottom right corner of the screen. This happens in any PS3 content: menu, in game, and in movie. What I've tried: Switching HDMI cables (doesn't fix) A different HDMI port on the TV (doesn't fix) Try a different AV receiver (doesn't fix) Connected the PS3 back to the old set (issue goes away...as expected) Thus, I feel I've sufficiently ruled out all possible hardware issues with the exception

  • I know that this is an age old question, but can you use a usb headset on a PS3 for both chat and game audio? I know that the firmware didn't use to support it, but now that Sony has their USB stereo headset, I thought for sure it would be possible. I don't know if it still isn't, or I'm just not searching google good enough. Does anyone have some concrete evidence that it is NOT possible?
