Playing Blu ray on PS3

Found 10th Feb 2011
Hi all,

I am hoping to get some advice for a PS3 problem.

I have ripped a few blu rays and put onto an external HDD, I then tried to play those films but I get the following problem.

Video = Fine
Sound = Nothing but if I fast forward to 1.5 I can hear the sound..

Any ideas please?

Oh and no "watch the film on fast forward then" I tried but it was all squeaky for my liking.

it sounds to me like a codec problem of some sort!! try using a different codec or container!!

How have you "ripped" them ?.

codec/container????...am lost already

ripped them about 8-10 months ago but since it did not work I did not bother and now do not remember the software I used. Only asked now because I saw help threads on PS3 problem.

how do I change to a different file type please?

I would use "Super" or "mkv2vob" and "PS3 media server" and you should have no problems, people complain about using PS3's for streaming but if you wire them rather than wireless and use the right software it is an amazing bit of kit! complainers usually don't know what they are doing! I also tend to stick with downloading in AC3 etc where I can to prevent problems!!

I am sure if someone wanted to you could quite easily play ripped BR to your Ps3 over the network......

was having difficulty on setting my PS3 and Win 7 PC to share, PS3 would find the PC as a media share but would not locate any files. Read a lot of "how to's" but no joy. Might try the Media Sever software but I think I would rather have it on a HDD, that way I do not have to have the PC on with all it's associated noises

only issue with that is the formatting of the HD. PS3 formatting does not allow for the large file sizes a BR requires. easiest way is to share using msoft media player.

hard-wire your PS3, use PS3 media server to browse your computers hard drive, it sets up sharing etc by default once installed and eliminates the need to split files into 4GB slices. then just browse your computer on your ps3 under "videos" simple as that!

Yes, I think I will try the Media Server software and see it goes with that

so what are the filetypes of the ripped videos? AVI?

if they are, transcode them using xvid4psp (using PS3 output setting)
