    make a subfolder called VIDEO on the mem stick and put them in there. or when it says no media files found, press green triangle and an option will be there to search further.

    folder structure

    depends on the read speed whether it will be jumpy though, does it not?

    Plug the USB in the PS3, go to the video menu > USB device > press triangle > display all > find your file and play.

    Got a cheap USB drive from ebay and has played smooth, I don't think read speed matters.

    Your welcome

    Yes i play everything straight from an 8gb flash drive. If you files dont play you can convert it with a freeware programme called alltoavi, google it. If you download it and alltoavi dont open properly, right click and run as administator.
