[Answered] Help playing back high def on Showtime - possible bug?
I'm running Multiman 2.00.01 and have come across an strange thing playing back media via Showtime and wonder if any one can help.
I convert my Blurays to approx 4gig M4V files using Handbrake which I am very pleased with quality/portability wise and these play back fine on the PS3 natively. However, when playing them back via showtime all I get is a black screen and the sound.
The description in showtime shows:
Quicktime/MPEG-4/Motion JPEG 2000 format
H264. Main(Level 4.0) 1920*768
AAC 48000 Hz, stero, 159 kb/s
Out of 9 titles tried all except one show black screen with sound only (the one that plays fine has the same attributes except (1914*804) but these resolutions vary slightly accross all 9 titles.
Now I have also downloaded a sample MKV file to test the Showtime ability to playback - showtime identifies this as
Matroska/WebM file formet
H264. High(level 4.1) 1920*1072
and this playsback fine.
Anyone tell me what I am doing wrong/ how to fix my files. Many thanks.
I don't have anything to say about your bluray conversions but I would say that mkv rips of bluray movies are the best for quality/availability on the net. If having these over 4gb and having to ftp is not for you, you can use mkv2vob to convert and split mkv files for use on ps3.
