Re: playing MKV on a PS3?

Twonky can't stream mkv's, but this can: http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/ In fact, the above server can stream a ton of other formats including ISO images of DVDs with subtitle support. Currently I have it installed with Twonky on the same server without any problems. It also generates thumb...

Re: A disgruntled customer

I recently "upgraded" to 5.0 as well and paid the license fee, but frankly don't see much improvement. However, you can still download 4.4.6:

Re: album art for album folders

You know, I don't know why I "Upgraded" to 5.0.4 either when my 4.x version was working perfectly fine. I don't see any improvements and stuff that was working before isn't now, like the MP3 images. The only thing new I see is the web streams, most of which don't work. I tried the Youtube streams an...

Re: album art for album folders

I recently installed the PlayOn media server on my PC running along with TwonkyServer. PlayOn lets you stream Netflix movies to your PS3. One thing I have noticed about PlayOn is that it shows a thumbnail of each dvd cover when you are browsing the folders. Why is it that I still can't do this with ...

DivX streaming problems

I have been trying to get DivX files to stream with Twonky and am having problems with any file over 2 Gigs. It will show the file under videos, but when I select it, the PS3 says unsupported format. Also, when I select "Information", the file size reported is incorrect. For the 2 gig file, it repor...

Re: ps3 vob streaming problem - and resolution?

I usually rip using only one audio stream. However, I've had some vob files that when played back get this strobing effect with a green image which makes it completely un-watchable. They play fine on the PC but for some reason on the PS3 they get the strobing effect as if every other frame is a gree...

Re: is there a MPEG2 file size limit? 4 GB ?

Well, I'm not sure about MPEG2 files with the MPG extension but I was able to copy a 10GB .VOB file (which is MPEG2) to the PS3 from my media server and it played fine without any problems.

This maybe obvious, but have you turned on the media server feature on your PS3?? It's under the system settings. I think it's off by default.

I ran into that problem once and it was because Twonky didn't correctly recognize my PS3 as being a PS3. I highly recommend giving your PS3 a static IP. Then go to the Twonky Admin pages under Basic Setup -> Clients/Security and make sure that it is listed there and recognized as a PS3. If not, manu...

Yeah, the 15 sec video clip would rock! But I believe that's a definite PS3 issue because the option for that is grayed out when you are watching videos from a media server.

Wow, that's a bit of overkill with folders. I've got something like 25-30 videos in one directory. It would be nice if you could use a .jpg file with the same filename as the video and it would use it as the thumbnail for the video, like: video1.avi video1.jpg video2.avi video2.jpg etc... Any way th...

Hi folks,

My first post here. I am also wondering how to get movie cover art on the PS3. I have all my video files in the same folder. Is it possible to show thumbnail images for them? Thanks.
