a few quotes from here : http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...=158357&page=5
- "I use MeGUI to make video files in general and for my PS3. Gives alot of control over the creation and tweaking of the files, but I wouldn't recommend it to novices as it requires a bit of fiddling around. H264 MP4 have to be made with main profile 4.1 level or they wont work (or work well) on PS3, and audio has to be AAC in the MP4."
- "MPEG2. Keep it simple.
Unlike MP4 where you have to make sure the flavour is right, PS3 will play several containers of MPEG2 - .ts, .ps (.mpg), vob
Plus it transcodes bloody fast. A good batch transcoder on a decent system could rip through a shedload of SD Divx overnight. PS3video9 is actually pretty good for this.
You'll probably have to play with the bitrates for different source videos, but I think thats the best. Should stream nice and easy too.
If you have .ts stuff, run it through VLC wizard to convert to .ps format (saved as .mpg) if you'r ehaving problems with sound. Takes less than a minute for an hours 720p .ts file
I'd like Divx support and I think it's likely to come from tversity in the next few weeks. But if not, then converting everything to MPEG2 wouldn't be a big deal for me. *Way* quicker than converting stuff to AVC, thats for sure"
- "I've actually found that converting to MP4, when done in the correct way, is by far the best format to go for. If you do it in such a way that the PS3 can read it, it can also be read by the 360, the iPod, the PSP (resolution permitting on the last two), etc, and it's much smaller than the MPEG-2 equivalent. Unless you're happy to be transcoding often MPEG-2 is only good for the PS3 and PC.
I didn't realise that the PS3 could handle MPEG-2 TS files though, which is handy since that's the format my PVR saves recordings in. Thanks for that."
Hope that might help.
