Random issues with 720p playback

Postby mrbard » Wed Feb 25, 2009 6:36 am

I can only use TSMUXER successfully at the moment to playback 720p movies from my current pc. The problem i am having is that every now and again quite randomly some movies don't work. As soon as i go to click on them on my PS3 i get DATA CORRUPTED". Ive had a search around on the web and i havent really found a solution yet. If i swap transcoders then sometimes it works but then they dont play without going terribly choppy. TSMUXER is the only transcoder that i can use successfully that doesnt get choppy at all and runs perfect. Below is an extract from the TRACES tab in the PS3 Media server application:

I fix it two days ago, that's why :p
but my guess is you will have maybe more troubles cause this errors means the parsing does not retrieve the codec used in your video
