As long as the avi is dowloaded "traditionaly" and not by small pieces, it is possible to play it with vlc. Vlc asks to repair it, and if you chose "no" you can play it anyways.
Maybe my message was not really clear, but it is working with PS3 Media Server. You can try the following, I have did it a bunch of times and it works, providing your download speed is high enough :
- Download a large video file on megaupload, for example using mega manager. (You can also try with download managers, or even with firefox)
- In the destination folder, you will have two files, video.avi and video.avi.megamanager (the second extension can change, depending on the software used)
- Open a command window and type fsutil hadrlink create myvid.avi video.avi.megamanager (for windows xp)
- This will create a link file
- Make sure your destination folder is shared in PS3 media server
- Open myvid.avi in the PS3 (you may have to go in transcode folder)
- Enjoy your streaming
So my question is : Could I add directly .avi.megamanager files into PS3 Media Server library, to be able to see these files appear on my PS3 without having to create a virtual link each time?
It looks like PS3 media server is discarding some files by looking at their extension, I would like to be able to change that and force him to add the extensions I want
