Research on the PS3 led to the following compatibility:
I have a lot of videos encoded from my Canon Isux 850IS with x264 - H264/AVC by using VirtualDub.MPEG-4: MP4 Audio MPEG-4 Part 3+ AAC Low Complexity (unprotected), MP4 Video MPEG-4 Part 2, + Simple Profile (MPEG-4 SP; MPEG-4 ASP is unsupported as of now) + DivX (in AVI), MPEG-4 Part 10 (also known as H.264/MPEG-4 AVC)+ Main Profile+ High Profile
The problem is pretty straightforward. When I play the original AVI from the camera with TwonkyMedia it works fine. When I play the x264 encoded one the PS3 says incompatible data. Even though research learnt me that the PS3 should be able to play H264.
What could be wrong? Perhaps the x264 encoder makes incompatible h264 ps3 avi's? Is there another 264 encoder i should try?
2) does not work
PS: This is a situation where it would be great if twonkymedia also offered a method of transcoding all media, just like tversity offers. Would be ideal to circumvent this limitation of having the PS3 to be able to decode all media you are sending in with TwonkyMedia; even though this would slow down the process obviously...
