Anyone else having problems with Latest PS3 firmware version + PS3 Media server video streaming? Some videos (.mkv or dvd or divx etc...) when playing start to make these short loud high "squeaky" noises and the image has glitches now and then or the video starts run poorly and goes out of sync for a while. Some movies even jam totally at some point. When this jam happens, windows gives error mesg that Mencoder has stopped working, and encountered an error. Just few weeks back, I did not have any problems watching any video files, and the only thing that has changed as I remember is the PS3 firmware. Windows plays all video files ok, no problems there.
I have tried many versions of PS3 media server, no difference. I have not changed any settings in the software itself. Also before I had Windows Vista when this problem started, I then formatted my HD and installed new Windows 7 and PS3 Media Server software, same problem.
* Problem is not in cpu being too slow
* Problem is not in the Operating system
* Problem is not in codecs
* Problem is not in some specific video file, some play ok and some not.
* Only thing that has been changed is the PS3 firmware.
Any suggestions? Let me know if you know what's the problem, or if I should provide the debug.log as well.
Here's the Windows error msg when Mencoder crashes:
