WHS and PS3? Possible? - Page 3

post #21 of 36
Thread Starter 
so um.. is there a way to create a folder on WMP? i thought the playlist option would work, but it will just play the file automatically (which doesn't work because of some codec required)

i would just like to create manageable folders on WMP so i can separate different files.

---

nvm found it

The whole collection of videos is managed through WMP's (lackluster and confusing) interface. I don't have it in front of me (I'm at work) but I think there's tools/options and a Library screen with "Monitor folders" where you can give WMP a list of folders to "monitor".

One thing I learned by trial and error when i was adding/deleting videos all the time: you have to go in to WMP and delete the "library" or whatever it's called and have it re-scan your collection. Other wise, at least for me, files that were re-named or deleted will still show up and obviously not play. The "library" is actually just this internal WMP database of your files, not the actual files. Learned that the hard way as well

Hope that was helpful, it's late/not in front of me and I'm sleep deprived.

thanks for your answer

i did a bit of googling and found where the folders were in WMP, but i think i had to create folders separately in the original D:\\shares\\videos folder and split them up that way... then go back into WMP and update library so it'll pick up the changes.

so um i was having some problems with mkv2vob and for a few files, when i tried to convert, it was only partial (say 150MB of a 1GB file) and then it would say complete when it isn't.

ive tried a batch of files and out of 15 of em, only 12 of em worked... the other three were incomplete... so i tried those 3 individual files separately and they still failed...

any suggestions?

MKV2VOB is the ****. I've been using it for at least 2 years now. I gave up on the whole streaming thing and just put all my media on external USB HDD's connected directly to the PS3.

As for your failed files, hmmmm... I'd say 3R1C over at the MKV2VOB forums would be your best source, he's the creator and usually lurking. He doesnt like to hear that something isn't working so he tends to answer real fast.

Once I had some problems with an .avi and removing the first 3-4 seconds of the file fixed that problem. It was some kind of frame sync issue caused by a poor encode. Depending on who ripped and coded the file originally, it might need to be re-encoded entirely, correctly.

If your rig is fast, re-encode the file. I'm sure there is a smarter more methodical way to fix your problem but I'm not that savvy when it comes to coding so if somethings screwed up, I just re do it. Their are soooooo many options and tweaks you can make to a file when you rip something, its very easy to render the resulting .avi nearly unplayable on all but a few devices.

thanks! i'll be sure to send my problem over to the MKV2VOB forums...

it may the same problem u had before...

other than this problem, MKV2VOB is the bomb! super easy and fast... then just drag and drop to server... turn on PS3, select server, and stream away

Good to hear that program works well for you. I haven't tried it for streaming, mainly just copying videos onto my ps3 hard drive to watch.

hrm this step was a bit confusing

Run "wmp11-windowsxp-x86-enu.exe /T:C:\\WMP11 /C" to extract the contents to "C:\\WMP11"

i put both winrar and wmp11 on server. installed winrar, but when installing WMP, it wont install. i have also extracted the files to C:\\WMP11
Don't think this is relevant any longer but I thought I would mention it in case anybody else was wondering: this particular exe is of the "self extracting" variety e.g. when you run it really what happens is the files extract, to %temp% by default, and then run the setup file from there. All transparent to the user normally.

But if you do the CLI magic you can extract the contents to a location of your choice. This done without any unzipping utility of any kind. The easiest way is to drag-and-drop the wmp11 setup file into your cmd window (or "DOS box" as some call it) and then add the options to the end (/T:C:\\WMP11 /C).

Hope that made sense. Maybe I just need to create an article about this.
