make sure you do an update to software V2.1 which now supports DIVX / WMV. Yet another reason to choose a PS3 over a 360 ;)

Another reason to choose a ps3 is that it can be converted into a George Foreman grill

Same could be said about any of the features

"But the 360 has way more games"

"Who cares, i can play thousands of games on my pc :whistling:"

Ahh the good old PC game days,
I used to love playing games on my PC until (esp COD1 online) the fan on Graphics card melted off
#8
So is will it play all avi files or not?
#9
Doesn't support xvid though.
Divx encoder costs money. And wmv sucks donkey balls. If you need to play video files on the ps3, install linux.

so you are saying DIVX is now on a PS3 but you have to pay them for the encoder?

if so, then install tversity so you can stream avi's etc straight from PC to ps3

Yes and the divx support was available before the PS3 update as well...

Neither seems to play all files though, ones that play fine on the 360 don't on the PS3 and vice versa.

The PLAYSTATION 3 system software version 2.10 update includes the following:

* Voice Changer

The Voice Changer feature has been added to voice / video chat. Visit the Voice Changer guide in Help & Support under PS3 at eu.playstation.com for more details.

Using this feature, you can change the tone of a voice that is input from an audio device such as a microphone. High and low-pitched tones can each be adjusted to five preset levels. You can vary the tone when using voice / video chat under Friends.


Other new or revised features in version 2.10

Music

* You can now select [Type 3] as an option under Settings > [Music Settings] > [Bitmapping]. This bitmapping process was developed specifically for the PS3TM system to enhance audio playback.

Video

* DivX and VC-1 (WMV) have been added to the types of files that can be played. *
* Blu-ray Disc Profile 1.1 is now supported. **
* [BD Data Utility] has been added. ***

*
- To play VC-1 (WMV) format files, you must go to Settings > [System Settings] and set [Enable WMA Playback].
- [COLOR="Red"]Copyright-protected files or files that were encoded by using DivX 3.11 cannot be played. - Files that are 2GB or more cannot be played.[/COLOR]
** You may now be able to use the "Picture in Picture" feature that enables playback of two videos at the same time with Profile 1.1-compatible Blu-ray Discs. Available features will vary depending on the disc.
*** The management data that is used by the Blu-ray Disc is saved.

dunno why they showcased it with drum and base. Should have got some Boards of Canada (BoC), Phillip Glass, Ulrich Schnauss or AIR for example.

I've been trying the divx playback out. Tried using xvid files direct with a usb stick, they didn't play the best, but when I streamed them over tversity they worked perfect! Liking it!
