PS3 and Streaming DVD movies

Post by darbid » Sun Jul 29, 2007 9:13 pm

I have been playing around with a DVD movie. With DVDShrink I have made one huge VOB file which Twonky recognises and PS3 plays. Only problems is that I only get stereo from the audio.

I think this is a PS3 issue but if it is not could someone please help me.

Is it possible to Stream DVD Movies when their folders are on the harddisc or when there is an image like .iso of it?
If not please add this feature. I would prefer to have a movie library on harddisk instead of searching a dvd which i have to put it in always.

ISO images are not supported.

What you need to do is encode to a format that the PS3 will play.

I suggest that you have a look at DVDFab.com (Platinum) as it has a DVD->Mobile option which will encode directly to a PS3 playable format.

You can use DVDShrink to rip the movie to a hard disk folder. In the preferences, make sure that "Split files into 1GB size chunks" is unchecked. The result is 1 vob file that contains the entire movie and can be streamed and played on the PS3. The only problem I've found with this is that I'm not able to fast forward or rewind in about half the movies I rip. I don't understand why, but it's a PS3 problem, not Twonky.
