Playing native EX1 files on Playstation 3?
on Feb 19, 2010 at 2:33:06 pm

I've been searching the forums and found several threads on how to do this but I can't seem to get it to work...

I've tried changing the extension from .MP4 to .ts, .m2ts, and. m2t (both upper and lower case) - putting the newly named file on a 4 gig HP USB stick as well as a SanDisk 16gig SDHC card with USB reader (both with tries at root level and the BPAV folder structure) and sometimes I can see the file (depending on what the extension is/folder structure) but when I try to play it I get "file is corrupted" or "file not supported" or "there are no titles" type prompts.

When I change the file extension to .ts it will play with VLC Player on my MacBook Pro...

Software version on the PS3 is 2.17...

Anybody have detailed info on how to accomplish this?

Thanks

Hi David,
The problem is that even changing the extension, the file still being QT, and QT is not supported.
I've been trying few thing, but no way.
I've tried to demux audio and video to re-mux them later as a TS or so, but being a QT movie, no way to de-mux.
I've tried as well to re-wrap an EX clip as AVI or MP4, but "failed".
I don't know how to skip the QT condition of the file without rendering.
I'll keep thinking.
I like this kind of "off-road" workflows.

There have been several posters who said they had success just changing the extension. The first posts I came across were from Craig Seeman who said all he did was change the extension to .ts - others said they put the files into a "VIDEO" folder with .m2t extensions - and others say .m2ts. I'm hoping Craig will chime in and give some details...

Hello All
This used to work for PC users but I have not tried lately.

I have found a way to view nearly native clips from the EX1 on a PS3.
I say nearly native as the audio has to be rendered but not the video.
Use Clip Browser to bring clip into Vegas.
Download MXF Desktop, if you don't have it, from Snell & Wilcox.
It is free on request via a link at DVi XDCam EX CineAlta forum.
This unwraps MXF files. It also enables MXF playback on WMP.
You will get an .m2v and 2x AES files. Rename the .m2v to .mpv.
Import the mxf into Vegas 8 Pro and render the audio to AC3.
Download and run TSMuxer. Select both the .mpv and .ac3 files.
Create a .ts transport stream.
This can be renamed .m2t to run from a disc or drive on the PS3 or rename to .mpg if using a network connection.
I have not tested it over the network yet so not sure if 35Mb will work Ok. This could also be used to make a non rendered Blue ray disc.
Unfortunately this is long winded and does not allow editing but if you want to see video untouched by rendering it is the only way I have found. I would be much happier if Vegas would smart render.
Cheers
Malcolm

Thanks Malcom...

I did come across this solution when I was searching... however it has to be a Mac-based workflow.

Craig Seeman- help getting EX1 files on Playstation 3?
on Feb 20, 2010 at 2:48:18 pm

Hey Craig,

found your posts saying you were able to get the native files to play on the PS3 by changing their extension from .MP4 to .ts - hoping you can give some details on this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - thanks.
