@soul collector,
What format are your videos in?

(asking so your question gets bumped to the top of the list)

I've got to head off to sleep so don't have time to search through these for you. Take a look at them and see if your answer is here:

@soul collector,
Videos need codecs. If your video is in a format that can't be played by your PS3 you should convert them.

You can find tools to do so by searching for "file format to file format".

e.g. "mpeg to avi"

Here are the formats that are supported:


Additionally the videos might have DRM restrictions that restrict what devices it can be played on.
