PS3 Playback for Progressive AVCHD 1080 60P

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi

I am interested in getting a Panasonic V700 or its little brother V720.
I store my videos on a 1TB FAT32 external drive and I use a Sony PS3 to playback on my Flatscreen TV.

Does anyone know if the PS3 will playback the native Progressive AVCHD 1080 60P files from the V7xx?
Also do you know where I could download a sample file for testing.

Thank You for your help

This is the answer you got at DPReview:

"Mark has many 1080p60 videos on vimeo at this link

http://vimeo.com/user1945704/videos

You can download his original 1080p60 files."

A long time ago (in forum time) a guy named Steve Cebu studied this pretty hard. He figured out that 1080p60 has a nominal bit rate of 28Mbps (or maybe it is MBps - I get confused.) Steve also figured out that it is a variable bit rate and can peak at around 40. His PS3 didn't like those peaks at all. Playback was not good on videos with high peaks. There may have been firmware updates that fixed it, but I don't know.

I don't have a PS3. Instead I use a WD TV Live with an external drive for native file playback. It works fine.

No! The PS3 does not like Panasonic 1080/60p raw files. It play's Sony 1080/60p raw files fine. Unless Panasonic has changed something in the way their cams record 1080/60p with the new models, the PS3 will not play them efficiently.

I have the newest firmware on my PS3 and raw files from the recent Panasonic LX7 will not play correctly. LX7 1080/60p files are even worse at playback on the PS3 than files created by the Panasonic TM900.

I have authored all my Panasonic HDC-SD700 1080/50P footage with full Menu & Chapters
to non compliant Blu-ray BD Media and AVCHD DVD R/RW media with the free MultiAVCHD & ImgBurn applications.
The BD and AVCHD Media plays without any problems on my Sony PS3 and Samsung BD-C6900.

Were the clips converted (re-compressed) by your "authoring" or were they straight from the camera and just copied?

MultiAVCHD uses tsMuxeR to Mux the original raw video.
There is no re-compression.
