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.
- 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."
No, it is for video that are in AVCHD format, which allows multiple soundtracks and subtitles.
I believe there's a program that converts multiple video file formats over to AVCHD but don't quote me on that just yet. I think this converter program was posted over at PSX site a couple days ago but it was posted inside a thread and not a thread title. I'll see if I can find it to post the name or site to get it from.

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.
