Data type not supported

Postby crick965 » Wed Feb 04, 2009 9:20 am

.. this is the message that my PS3 given me when i'm trying to see some kind of file.
PS3 media server works fine with a lot of ".avi", but with some other ".avi" and with ".mkv" my PS3 given me the message in the subject.
Can you help me ?

P.S. I have tried some configuration suggested by pop-up (e.g. " Normal Quality", "Great Quality" ..) but the results no changes !

Those are just containers. You need to make sure the codec on the inside is PS3 compatible for basic streaming. If it's not compatible, you can play the file through the #Transcoded# folder listed in the same directory as all of your video files when on the PS3.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
