How long has it been since they shut down their old DL site? The one that was free?
too long my friend.. too long ;(
i have like 20 movies on my ps3...not blu ray quality but nonetheless u get wat u pay for which in this case would be a free dvd
What website has free DiVX movies?
Man this was a big hassle. PSN video store is definitively better. Honestly, I just went through a bunch of bs just to active my PS3, only to download the video on the PC. How dumb is that? I guess it was worth my time since I got Ace Ventura for free but I'm unlikely to use this service again.
"Great, now I can watch Batman Begins since I've yet to see it." I go through the hurdle of downloading the player, finding the PS3 code, finally registering my PS3, clicking on the VOD link on my Mac before the screen goes completely dark, setting up a streaming client so I can get the darn file on my PS3, and then after all that I get ready to watch the thing and the quality is akin to what I could've gotten off one of those movie download sites. You're better off just getting the blu-ray or renting it IMO.
why not just pirate a movie and stick a usb in ur console lol ya i am a pirate
Why the f*** would I jump through hoops for a simple free DivX movie when there are easier ways to cop a free movie? Like this one, through other sites, without this hassle. Be it through the browser on your 4 or on your PC; it's simple, it's easy. DVD quality movies, right to your 3. This is unnecessary. But cool I guess. Unfortunately some are unaware of how bad a** their PS3 can really be.
Since I have Batman Begins on Blu-ray, I've opted for Ace Ventura. Alllllllllllllllllllllrighty then.
Me too. Awesome film.
Same here. One of the few blu rays I own, so it's Ace Ventura for me.
thanks, but gonna pass. already have batman on blu ray, and rest are meh.
Agreed.. I don't even want to sign up for one of those movies..
How do i get the VOD code?
It's under System Settings.
SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING PANTS!!!!!!11111
It's amazing that one pair of pants fits 3 hot girls and the chubby one....lol America Ferrera is actually looking pretty good now though.
go thru all that for bb ffs lol. no thanks.
"all that"? It takes like 5 minutes.
As much as I like it when it was free, especially once all the bugs were worked out *right* before they stopped doing it, really can't see this taking off. Not with Netflix and Sony's own DL service. Maybe if they had done it sooner. Like shortly after they killed it. Would probably help if they also offered Youtube like uploads like they did before.
Where & how do u download the divx software 4 the ps3?
Its already there. You just have to go to the site and register for the DL.
Has anyone been able to play the divx movie downloaded from Divx site after registered VOD code from your PS3? It first downloaded a small file to activate the Divx in PS3. Then, it downloaded from the email a 922 bytes .tix file that PS3 doesn't understand how to play. This Divx movie download service is probably the worst of any online movie download.
Open the .tix file in the PC Divx player and it'll download
but is there ANY way that Divx will give me the ability to get MKV files to play on the PS3, since I get nothing but Divx sending me praises about the format, and I love it because of the quality. I have stuff in 720p quality or so, and they're files. I can't get them onto the PS3 either because of size (it tells me if it's more than 4 GB I think, that it's too big for FAT32 format) or it won't play at all. Out of the tons of formats my PS3 reads, it won't take a couple still, and MKV's are one, and since Divx seems to love them in their offers and messages in my inbox, I figured there's gotta be a simple trick. I have DVDFab and it's supposed to have a conversion "File to Mobile" option. I've used DVDFab for 1.5 years and know it well, but when I put MKV's in for conversion, the sound is out of sync, and I mean by a lot, like 5 seconds off. But I try and do an AVI into an MP4 or something, and it' works fine. I'd rather Divx or Sony made MKV's possible, because it's IMO the highest quality compression (well, sometimes I've had HD quicktime/MP4's turn out really nice, and even some AVI's in HD have come out great, but...)
MKV isn't native, but you can convert it to another format (as you have tried). This seems to work: http://hubpages.com/hub/How...
and it addressed the file size concern and quality concern that were both on my mind. You're gonna hit the max bubble count, Thom...but bubbles anyways. I've googled before, but a lot of times the routes are said to have a loss of quality, iffy results, iffy programs, people complain about ease of use or compatibility. And this one even was specifically for PS3 versions. I'm downloading Ver. 246 now, hope it goes well!
I'm on Ubuntu & there is no Divx player for linux. Total lameness. Alrighty then...
All I can say is.....ARRR MATEY!!!
"Download a free DivX movie for your PlayStation 3" Alrighty then!
Are people missing where this is pretty much advertising for a movie DL site? It obviously fails in that case, but still...
