That's strange, the PS3 already supports those codecs. I guess the keyword was "file".

Anywho, keep them coming.

I would love for SONY to add DIVX web player to the PS3's browser as well as the divx codec to the PS3. It would be heaven if they added the divx we player especially with stage6.

I'd like that and some Quicktime Player support. they should hold up on the releasing patches until the big one with XMB access during games.

I would pay money for a DivX player to handle all my .avi's. Converting everything is taking a long time.

I want to see a nice web browser (flash player included) update with that.

I don't want to have to download another large firmware file for 1 change.

All the AVC files I have are in Matroska file format, so for the time being I'll have to rely on Ubuntu and MPlayer to play those. (However this will remain inconvenient until Ubuntu adds support for the PS3's WiFi as YDL did.)

icdedppl3917d ago

yeah, but does this update maybe mean that we can now play mtk files w/o the need to re-encode? that would be so nice!

This blog has been a big feature and good help, cant wait to see more things come from it.

Bit of RM/RMB support would be cool too
