    [UnAnswered] PS3 and video file formats

    If I have an external hard drive connected to the PS3, what video files can it recognize and play from the hard drive. Thanks.

    I think for divx you must have at least firmware 2.10

    Early firmware versions only played nice with Mpeg4, however most videos you get from the innerwebs are divx or xvid and so far with my 2.10 I have only had a few I needed to re-code.

    As far as I know, .mpeg and .mpg are also played fine even at firmware 1.5 (this is the lowest firmware for me, because I have got a European 60GB PS3)

    Does it support .mkv files?

    Can .avi files be played back from the hdd or ext hdd or is there some way of changing them to play on the ps3?

    Thanks,
    Brett

    I tried and it didn't work for me. I'm on 2.10 firmware.
