PS3 not playing some MP4 files

4
Posted 22nd Feb
hi all, i have got this weird problem. I recorded all videos using my huawei Mate 20 Pro. But when all the videos are copied in external USB hardrive, the ps3 is only playing few of them and showing rest of them as "UNSUPPORTED"
The format, codec etc is all same since these are all made from same phone.
Any ideas of how to fix this issue..

Note: All other mp4 files in External hard drive are playing as normal.

mp4 is a container so the comparison with "other mp4 files in External hard drive are playing as normal" is irrelevant except an indication of the contents on the mp4 that the PS3 is (usually) happy with. Compare the contents of the ext HDD mp4s' to see if the M20P is using same, inc format, bitrate, resolution, etc.
These videos were recorded with the same phone without changing anything in the settings.
All the videos were put in one folder where some are playing and some are showing as "unsupported".
The files which are playable and the one which are showing as unsupported have same codec and format.

Hard drive corruption on the sectors where those files are saved. Backup and replace hard drive. You can try copying the file again from source as a different name to see if that's the case (they should play).

Need to also consider the normally unconsidered such as character set in filename configuration, filename length, maximum character storage location length, etc.
Look at spec of PS3 to see what is genuinely supported rather than what "may work".
