Word to the wise, ANY divX or Xvid video that doesn't work, juss run it through ps3 video 9. It might take an hour to do it, but it will work on your ps3.

Ok, our videos may be crappily encoded. Thats not the point. I think the whole point of this thread is to SEE if anyone has any solutions to this, not to say 'your file sucks'.

Also, mine don't happen when i pause them... but its more like progressive and becomes noticable about 25 minutes through the video.

edit: I tried running it through PS3 Video 9, but it just like 'converts' it in a second and there is no result. I'm geussing it doesnt like the file.

Are you people streaming your videos? thats a no no. Don't stream 2 hour long movies, you'll just end up really fusterated. Just use a memory device and copy videos to ps3, it takes min's.

If they are crap, why are they perfectly fine on the 360 or PC? Maybe the PS3's playback software is crap which is far more likely the case.

So Deadwood and Lost are pirated movies now? Gee, I thought they were TV shows? You're a real smart one, thanks so much. They are properly coded which is why they work fine onb properly coded playback software

Properly coded ones work perfectly fine. Your just complaining b/c your pirated movies are having problems.

Mine are burned to DVD-R discs. Of my three devices only the PS3 has problems so I know it's not the files but the PS3 software. Too bad because I think the PS3 delivers the best picture quality of the three.

I have the same problem with some files. It's very annoying. Same files work fine on PC and the other console. PS3 is turning out to be a not so great media hub so far. I sure hope they fix it. It's a darn good thing it can play Blu rays.

Re: PS3 Divx playback troubles

Dec 4, 2008

I have Divx and Xvid movies and recorded TV shows that I have had for years and have they have played without any problems on PC’s, Mobile media players and DVD Players. Most play on the PS3 but some will not. I am not an expert but there seems to be some problem with the audio.

 

The answer (at least for me) is to run the movie through VirtualDub (it is free and widely used).

 

Just open the video file, go to Video set it on “Direct Stream Copy”. Then go to Audio, and set that to “Direct Stream Copy”. Finally go to File and “Save as AVI”.

 

Because you are not asking VirtualDub to do any encoding it saves it really quickly. The saved file should then play on the PS3 (I have done this process about 10 or 15 times and every movie has played on the PS3)

 

However, sometimes the audio is out of sync, so to check just play the movie on your PC. If it is out of sync, open the file you have just saved in VirtualDub, go to Audio, “Interleave”. You will see a box “Audio skew correction”. Add a number, like 500 to the box. Then play little sections of the movie through VirtualDub to see if it is sync. If not go back and adjust the number in the skew correction box. When you are happy, once again save the file.

 

I noticed the movies that originally would not play on the PS3 always were out of sync after I put them through VirtualDub. The movies that played were in sync after I put them through VirtualDub. So I guess there is an audio problem. What is odd is that once I put a movie through VirtualDub it will always play on the PS3, even if it is out of sync

 

For a couple of my old movies I had to change the audio compression. To do this change “Direct Stream Copy” to “Full Processing Mode”, then go to “Compression” and choose a compression format like MPEG Layer 3 => 48 kBits.

 

I hope this helps, but as I have said I ma not an expert and cannot tell you why the above works
