PS3 Video Formats
  • Now i noticed that i can copy videos from my computer onto a disk then onto the PS3. I've been able to make MPEG format play.

    Now what im wondering is what formats can be played on the PS3? from looking it up on the internet it says i can play MPEG, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MP4 I think..

    reason im asking is because i would like to download movies or tv shows onto my computer and swap them over to the PS3 via a CD-R. So what video Formats should i be looking for?
  • According to the guide with the PS3 the only video format is MPEG-4 for video. However if using Linux (as you so craftily linked to ;) ) you should be able to use any compatible format for the player you plan on using there.
