Don't get your hopes up for anything good tonight. Unless there's some surprises it looks pretty blah. 3 mission packs for Sonic at $2.49 each and another handful of trailers.

OK, there is a trailer up for "Bee Movie" and not ONE Spider-man 3 trailer? Sony, c'mon..... They better have some good Spider-man 3 PS3 promos in the works.

Transformers trailer should be nice.

I hope Sony uploads the full trailer, which shows the Decepticons attacking earth.

I can't wait for July 4th... Autobots, Roll Out!!!!!!!!!

I found a link to the World's End 1080p trailer at Aint It Cool and saved it with Quicktime Pro. It looks awesome on my tv in 1080p. I can't wait for the Transformer trailer. It should be cool.

Wow! The Bee Movie Trailer is quite nice to watch. It can be had in full 1080p and has some beautiful, vibrant colors and sharp contrasts that look fantastic in full HD. Kind of a funny promo, too. The primary voice actors are Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock.

Mmm....Dreamworks!

Is there anywhere you can direct us to explain how to convert these trailers to a format PS3 can understand? What software are you using? I tried going from my computer to PS3 with a memory stick and no go. It doesn't even show it's on the memory stick when you display the contents.

sure
i use quicktime pro. very easy to use. cheap, powerful and fast. go find some nice shiny 1080p trailers. here are some great sources:

http://www.apple.com/trailers/

http://www.drfoster.f2s.com/

quicktime pro will let you download and save the trailer files.

once you've done this, in qt under file click on export. on the next screen select "movie to mpeg-4" then click options

if you downloaded trailers from the above sites, your video and audio should be set to "pass through". the conversion should take just a few seconds. if you have other content not already in .mov format, you'll need to let it convert to mpeg 4. i'd suggest playing with the settings for optimal pic quality vs. file size, and converting a non .mov file to mpeg 4 will take considerably longer than the .mov--->.mp4 container change


move file to media and that's it. once you transfer it to the ps3, be sure to start playing the trailer, hit the triangle button, navigate to the best part of the trailer, and let it make a thumbnail movie for you from that point.

enjoy

oh, and the 1080p pirates trailer is on dave's site...

I recommend grabbing the Transformers trailer from Yahoo (linked at Dave's Trailers Page). Something is wrong with the version from PSN...I don't know if background downloading corrupted parts of the file, or it was simply encoded with ignorance, but there are major motion artificacts. You will see objects and characters just go fuzzy.

For trailers with multichannel AVC, use Yamb to convert it. It will tell you that the conversion failed, but the surround information will remain intact. PS3 can't decode multichannel AVC, but this is useful just in case it can in the future.

For trailers in stereo, use the pass through option in Quicktime.

I wonder what the problem Sony is having getting full surround working? Until then I'd rather just download them on my computer.

XBOX Live: Wagmman
PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman
Steam: Wag

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

I found the full 1080p Transformers trailer at Yahoo: link

The trailer uploaded to PSN tonight is the same one.

I'm off to find the 'End of the World' trailer...this will be my first transfer to the PS3.

I downloaded the Transformers trailer. I have watched it multiple times on HDNet. I didn't notice any glaring problems with the encode but not having 5.1 like the HDNet version makes a difference.

The only problem I noticed off hand are the grill on Optimus looked jagged vs what I remember from the HDNet version. Also the lights on the ground from the vehicle passing as Optimus is transforming looks weird but that might be a CGI problem.

Sony definitely need to get 5.1 working for trailers. Pretty sad.

it is sad, and i don't know what the problem is. is it a technical issue or a file size issue? i don't know. but yeah, crappy 2 channel sound coupled with 1080p is not a good combo...

That was my only disappointment with the trailer, I was hoping to hear my surrounds used. Oh well, now I can at least watch the trailer on my big screen anytime I want

The UK store has 2 pretty weird(but kinda cool) short films that seem to be ads for the PS3, but I can't tell what they have to do with the PS3. They both feature the same characters, and the grenade one is pretty cool.

I'm having issues the Pirates trailer....after conversion from .mov to mp4, I transfer it to the PS3 and I've gotten "unsupported data" (or something to that effect) and "data corrupted" errors.

I've used QT Pro to transfer a few other .mov trailers from apple's website or dr.foster and they've worked fine. I got this error again when trying play Transformers downloaded from Yahoo.

Any suggestions? I'm using a 1gb USB flash-drive to do the transfers...

some questions:

where did you get the pirates trailer?

what settings are you using for conversion?

are you messing with audio/video options at all?

The Pirates trailer came from Yahoo. The drfoster site has been down all day today...

I actually used your recommendations on the mp4 conversion, basically set to pass-through. I haven't tweaked any of the audio/video settings...
