ok i converted a video to mpeg and mp4. i tried both. then i used red kawa file server to tranfer it to my ps3 . it went to the video folder but it stops at 1242 mb. the actual file is 5335 mb. it shows 5335 mb when it starts downloading and goes to 100% then installs video but the file when i look at it thry xmb is 1242 mb. and its not complete but will play till the point where the movie stops at 1242 mb. i also tried to use ps3 proxy to redirect a ps store video to see if that would work and it to stopped at 1242.
anyone have ideas why this happens and how i can get the full file to transfer 100 % i know i could split it into pieces but want to send the whole 5335 mb file in one piece is this possible?
well after lots of internet reashearch and searching this forum i found a solution. Vilvic Media Center will allow you to transfer 4+ gig videos to your ps3 xmb and they work good. the progress bar shoots to 100% and it show a file size of 0kB while its downloading . but you can see the hdd light on the ps3 flashing and the ring at the top right of the internet window working. after 1 hour or so my 5.3 gig file was done and in the xmb it reports the correct file size and movie plays fine. hope this helps others.
