Here is a program I created called Simple AVCHD Manager v0.1 based on Open Manager and for use on JailBroken PS3 consoles.

Download: Simple AVCHD Manager v0.1 for PS3

From the ReadMe File: "Based on Open Manager. Thanks to all who have been involved with creating and fixing it.

This is for use with USB devices that contain directories of movies processed with the windows AVCHD manager, it allows the selection of the movie for viewing under the XMB with subtitles if available.

If you dont know how to get your videos into AVCHD format use google.

Functions

• Scans connected USB devices for folders processed by the windows AVCHD Manager.
• Any current AVCHD folder is automatically changed to the movie name as defined in details.txt.
• Changes the selected movie directory name to AVCHD to allow playback through XMB.
• Displays custom cover/screenshot icon "ICON0.PNG" if present in the movie directory. Resolution up to 320x176 supported.
• Allows deletion of movie directories.
• No FTP or copy mode as I do not see the point when you can just connect your usb device to the pc and copy files that way.
• No ability to copy to internal drive as AVCHD files do not work from there.
• This is only version 0.1 as there is more work needed to the code to remove unnecessary portions."

Simple AVCHD Manager v0.1 for PS3 is Now Available

thanks for writing your windows avchdmanager, it is very useful and without it i would never have had the idea for this version.

The interface is currently very basic (same as the original open manager) but i am planning to display the extra information from details.txt in the next version.

Any suggestions for improvements welcome.

I use tsmuxer to convert to AVCHD.

Attached a guide for those who need it.

PS3 AVCHD Guide

You need
1) tsmuxer GUI
2) A USB device
3) windows version of AVCHD Manager. Put this in the root directory of the usb device
4) Source mkv video file.


What to do
1) Load tsmuxer and open the video file
2) Select AVCHD disk as output
3) Goto split and cut option and ensure it splits large files.
4) Enter output location on the USB drive. e.g. g:\myfilm1\
5) Remove unwanted soundtracks and subtitles to save space (the ps3 will allow selection between what is available)
6) Start Muxing
7) Once muxing has completed start avchd manager
8) click identify and verify/change details
9) Click AVCHDMe
10) Click make default to make this the video the PS3 will play
11) Repeat steps 1 - 9 for other video files.

Plug USB device into the PS3 and it will detect the AVCHD folder. Goto video to play it with subtitles and DTS working.

On a JB PS3 you can use Simple AVCHD Manager to change the default video without needing to unplug the usb device.
