Downloading now...... this is waiting..... ............. (for real I was just about to play Call of Duty 4 till I saw the screen update. And wouldn't you know it....I was just on Stage6 downloading videos......)
Xvid WORKS. Divx WORKS. New visualization according to some Edit: Holy crap it's an official rotating NASA photo of earth! WTH?!. Can't wait for Blu Ray 1.1 movies... 100 degrees and we haven't even got out of pending. look out. @Skerj I noticed it there too then read it by someone on the PS forums.
Hah I saw the NASA stuff in the PS3 credits and didn't know what it was for until you just told me. It's dope indeed, in one of them the light shining on the earth appears to pulsate to the beat.
LMFAO, some xbox prostitute disagreed with you cause you're downloading, bbles for u dude.. lol
Yay! DivX, AVI, and WMV files WORK!
and XVID tooooo!
can anyone tell me if stage 6 works on the web browser?
Downloading... as well.
this tonight after work... sigh. at leats i can now do the divx and xvid on my PS3... helss yeah Naruto and My newly downloaded 1080p FFXIII and FF Versus XIII trailers all on my PS3... hot ish indeed.
the FFXIII 1080p mp4 trailers are looking better on my PC through MPclassic than on the PS3, surely because of the filters and advanced settings, which would be great, if they could implement some settings also into the PS3 video player.
u can download at work
I thought the updates were supposed to be less frequent, more like how Microsoft does it
They're edging into that, IE they will get less and less frequent but not immediately. IDK and IDC, either way the features get added is fine.
a Sony rep, Eric Lempel said after 2007 they'll not release as frequent firmware updates
Do you think we care what you think? o_0
The new audio visualization is HOT!
Heck ya it is, mines is showing an eclipse now and it looks so nice in HD.
it doesnt stream stage6 videos.......i thought we could stream? so is this just dl and watch only?
can not play file higher than 2gb
Go take a nap ya big baby.
true that but not a lot of divx files over two gigs... also you could just use tversity to play works for all formats and even greater than 2 gig movies..
Who the heck needs anything more than 2gig file sizes?
Thats not a problem. If you have a file larger than 2Gb, get a video splitter, split the file to two, nero 7 should do the job..
GTFO wtf you doing with 10 gigs Files anyway F$#KING pirate lol jk but Stfu tho
I can now stream DivX and Xvid movies saved on my laptop. Pretty cool how you can stream and save movies onto the HDD from your computer, wirelessly.
firmware v 3.80 is OUT NOW for the PSP!
Word? Damn I might just have to update that too. Edit: LMFAO as soon as I started the PSP internet radio up I hear "THRILLEEEEEEEEER thriller night" I was laughing so hard Thriller was freaking playing!! PSP just won the year for that.
*giggles like a kid in a candy store*
Well Damn..... PSP Got an update too!!!! Great googgily moogily!!!!!
I told myself that it's coming out today and totally forgot lol. awesome! It's christmas already ;3
Internet radio on PSP...very nice. EDIT: @ Darkiewonder (killer handle BTW) The player is uber easy to install and the quality is great. PS3/PSP combo is sooo sweet.
I was about to say that. Can't wait for the update to finish lol
There is hardly any movies over 2GB...Most are like 700MB...
Tell that to the pirateers of blu ray movies and hd dvd's
Yeah I was thinking to all the other guys: Do you think they implemented it at 2GB's because they like the number 2? Yeah people it's because people pirate movies on Divx/Xvid and this is there to stop it.
HD content is often larger than 2GB. 720p TV shows are around 1GB+ or so but 720p films are around 7GB+.
my sh!t is so fukn slow
Its downloading uber slow for me :( %13
its a small detail but i frickin love what they did with the browser, to have you background showing...in the background unlike the plain color of before, sweet
Seems much better with my black background.
I did a test to see how much better the videos look in DivX rather than MPEG4, and they looked exactly the same. Aren't DivX supposed to look better?
DivX is a COMPRESSION format, it's used to save space. Which is a good thing, if your 60gb HDD is filling up fast. xD
On a roll aren't they. Downloaded both psp and ps3 this is great.
that we now have full compatibility with Windows Media Video.....that's a kick in the balls to Micro$oft. lol! EDIT** We are consuming Microsoft tech on something that is not from Microsoft. They don't like that. =) I'm sure Microsoft would love it if I transferred all my WMA and WMV files to my PS3, right? THey would just LOOOOOVVVE it when I completely forget about using my windows OS for anything related to windows media? LOL! HA!
Since when having Sony fanboys and Anti-Microsoft adopt Microsoft's technology a "kick in the balls"? if anything... it's a reminder that it does not matter how much Sony tries to avoid Microsoft technologies... Microsoft will always have their finger prints all over any Sony system... Just like blu-ray had to support VC1... LOL... ohh please.. stop.. don't hurt Microsoft no more! lol. Tool... You are not hurting Microsoft.. you are consuming their technology... exactly what they wanted you to do.
Hey bladester its your bed time, stop trying to defend your whack system, also why is it that our system can take full advantage of something the other system cant off of their own makers software?
Shut up and stop trolling...tool. You're obsessed with the PS3 so much you might as well go get one. I mean you do post in EVERY article about it. You're either a fan or you're a pathetic troll. Which is it?
Great update. 'Step by Step' as the New Kids used to say
Only if they are encoded at a higher bit rate fool. Video format does not = quality difference, in most cases. Who told you something so foolish? :P Video format differences are related to file size and quality output ratio. Like a 700mb MP4 might be equal to a 2Gb dvd/vob with equal looking quality, get it?
Well you don't have to call him a fool. He was just asking. @20: The quality in the videos you checked out may have been the same, depending on how long the guy who compressed them felt like spending, but you'll probably notice the DivX files are a lot smaller than the Mpeg4 vids. Also, most stuff you download online will be in a DivX/Xvid format. This saves you having to convert the files if you intend to put them on your PS3's hard drive. My PC's old and converting stuff takes forever.
Gonna go download NOW!!!
flawlessly using eyeconnect. when this demo expires i am gonna be bummed. apparently connectPS3 is coming. cant wait.
One of the main points of this update is to make it so you don't have to stream it at all. You can now store divx files on your ps3's hard drive, and play them from there. You shouldn't worry what will happen when your demo expires....just put the files on your PS3!
anyone know how to turn on the upnp? its says unavailable. one day i just couldnt stream from my PC to my PS3.. :( my router is a gateway if it helps the situation. well if you have any tips p.m me. thanks in advance
Read my post above you, dude. EDIT** Just installed....and the NASA earth visualizer is amazing! very very cool...A live render of the earth with real weather conditions reflected on its surface! In the words of Austin Powers.....YEAH baby, YEAH!!!
You can turn on UPNP in the "internet connection settings" screens. However, like the last guy said, you may not need to now if you happen to have a flash card or something. You can just store the files on your PS3 now. If you need to use streaming for some reason, there's an option under settings somewhere to turn on/off media server searching. If that's off you'll need to turn it on again. I don't recall exactly where it is, but it's somewhere obvious enough.
I got a 2 GB SD card...gonna test some xvid divx...and then test streaming for divx files from windows media player... Nasa audio visualizations???? I gotta see that!!! Looks like i am not going to get much sleep tonight... A PSP update too? I downloaded the 2.10 firmware update is less than 5 mins!!! Its good to have a fast internet connection!!! I am installing now!!! Dang sony! Oh my gosh!!! The Earth Visualiztion is so bad assed!!! Damn I wish I had 1080p now...i am just at 720p\1080i... I am about to test some divx files....
I expect a report from some Anime fan that owns a PS3 about the DivX codec compatibility (I already did my 360 DivX report :P but I dont own a PS3 yet T.T) The most important test I want someone to test is if h264 coded avi or mp4 files work (usually the HD anime releases) appreciate the feedback :D
