According to reports, 2.4 now supports Flash v7.0.25.


Is this high enough to play hulu.com videos?

I take it you don't have 2.4 to check? I'll check next time I turn it on...

Thanks!


I haven't installed it yet due to the save locking feature it has.

I just tried it for you, they will not work. Gametrailers.com movies do not work either. Upgrading to the latest flash player is now my most requested feature for the PS3.


It's incredible how much the PS3 has improved since launch. For those of you that received the system at launch, remember not being able to do 'background downloads', or having to plug in your controller to do firmware updates?


Hopefully the PS3 will continue to get better and better in the future.

It's great they keep adding this stuff, but it also shows how limited their scope was when producing the thing in the first place.

Don't forget no streaming nor upscaling at launch too.

Thanks for trying. I'm with you on the flash upgrade. Let's cross our fingers and hope that Flash v9 is implemented.

to me, the ps3 as a media center is worthless until they add dd 5.1 and dts 5.1 along with better container support....how are you guys able to watch stuff in stereo when you have a nice 5.1 or 7.1 system already set up??

I "watch" my media in DD 5.1.



Here's the process that I settled on after much research and experimenting:


1. Rip DVD using DVD Fab (the free version) or DVD Decrypter

2. Transcode the video to H.264 using Handbrake. I don't have an HDMI receiver, so I have to choose AC3 audio and the mkv container, because the PS3 does not like AC3 audio in an mp4 container.

3. Use mkv2vob to re-package the audio and video into a vob file with a .mpg extension.

4. Stream the movie using TVersity (with transcoding turned OFF) OR

5. copy it to the PS3's hard drive via one of many available methods (optical storage, flash media, over the network via TVersity)



I haven't played around with any DTS DVDs to see if I can preserve that sound.

HOLY MOLY..that is a lot of work.


I'm not trying to sound like a jerk, but wouldn't it just be easier to put the original DVD in the ps3 and watch it?

Just tested this, youtube videos still work for me.

Or if space isn't a concern, you can quickly rip just the mpg stream and sound stream of your choice off DVDs with smartripper and then use VOB2MGP to turn the output VOB into a mpg that the PS3 can use. There is no transcoding involved, so the process is as fast as your computer can read the data off the DVD and then less then a few minutes to change the VOB to a mpg.


The good part about this method is that you get no video or sound quality loss, but at the price of a significantly larger filesize. Personally I can barely stand the compression artifacts that already exist on the DVD, nevermind introducing more through additional compression. The only downside is the bad interlacing artifacts which applies to any interlaced video that is either streamed or played off the PS3 harddrive. Unless you select deinterlacing when encoding with handbrake, the interlacing problems exist with method suggested by the other poster too.

Nah, only about 5 minutes of it requires interaction from me. It's well worth the saved hassle when it's a movie my 2 year old wants to watch all the time. And as mentioned, most of the work is because I'm transcoding to MPEG-4 for space-savings.
