PS3 Media Encoding - MP4 / AVC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just wondering if there's any resolution limitiations / file size limitations for encoding video for the PS3? I'm having trouble encoding then playing back a 720P MP4 SP AAC LC file I've encoded, with the ps3 saying its a unsupported file.

Going into the properties, it registers the AAC sound, but not the video. When lowering the Bitrate down, it then registers the sound and the video at 1.2Mbps, but still says unsupported..

Any ideas?

How about AVC, whats the limitations on that, and the best video encoder that will let me make a 1:1 copy, or atleast supports enditing of the bit rate?

I'm having some real trouble getting a 1:1 conversion that will play, and most of the PS3 conversion programs seem to be greatly lacking in their options to put out the best quality video.

I was trying to encode to mp4 using red kawa's free converter and it worked for very small files but larger files got ugly plus it was throwing out to much data.

Are you making the mp4's from ts? Because I just learned about a freeware called hdtvtompeg2 that changes ts to mpeg2 super quickly (because it doesn't re-render.) And the resulting files play back on the ps3. So,.. if you still have ts that may be an option.

p.s. I read about a bug where video files would cut off at 15 minutes but I transfer-ed a 20 minute file and it played back without the alleged problem.
