Does anybody know why some internet video won't play in the ps3 browser? Are there some types of internet video which are not compatible with the ps3 browser? Is there a way to fix this?

There are several plug-ins that these video players use, but aren't supported on the PS3's web browser. Also, the Flash Player plug-in on the PS3 is outdated, which is also causing a problem.

The only way it can be fixed is by having Sony update the web browser. However, I doubt they are going to do it, since they have contracts with many of these video subscription services (Vudu, Netflix, Hulu, PSN video service, etc...).

Some video streaming sites, like Youtube (www.youtube.com/tv) have created special portals that will work with the PS3's web browser though.
