I can try and take a vid that is really busy and see if that helps. My upload speeds are awful so to upload a 1GB file would probably take all night.
The vid with the basketball players didn't cause a crash/freeze for me. I'll have to try something once I get the camera on Friday.
Steve, it's not really about my Slim PS3, but more about your Fat PS3. Any busy footage that makes the bitrate jump to a 33 to 36Mbps rate causes my slim to hiccup. It could be any length really, but it has to have alot of action in the footage to make the cam's bitrate go that high.
Let me explain exactly what I am seeing when the bitrate gets too high for my ps3 to handle. I do not see any stuttering, crashing , or freezing when it happens.
The video looks like it's slowed down (think slow-mo), and has less detail and sharpness. The slowing down is very subtle. I can see some people not being able to detect it. Also, the sound is fine while all this is going on. You can really tell by keeping the PS3's information screen up at all times, that way you can monitor the bitrate on the fly. When the problem occurs the bitrate will go to single digits..8 to 9 Mbps.
I appreciate you offering to upload a large file as I would like to see more native files from the 900 anyway, but it's really not necessary. I'd rather you concentrate on watching your footage carefully to see if your PS3 has the same problem as mine, and reporting a definitive yes or no.
I have tried every setting that I can think of to eliminate this problem, including turning all enhancements off. Thanks alot...
