PS3 Firmware 2.35 sneaks YouTube functionality in!

Sponsored Links
336w ago - Sony claimed that all Firmware 2.35 did was "improve stability of some PS3 titles". Well, it turns out that the YouTube compatibility is one of those secret updates that occasionally make it unannounced into a PlayStation 3 firmware update.

The functionality was added via Version 2.35 of the firmware. At the moment, Mainichi Issyo (the crazy cat game downloadable only on off the Japanese store) is the only title to do so.

Videos are captured at 320x240, 30 frames per second and saved in an MPEG-4 file at 768kbps. Sound is recorded at 64kbps in AAC format. The maximum clip length is ten minutes.

Upon selecting to finish their recording sessions, players are given the choice of either saving their clips to the hard disk or uploading them to YouTube. Choose the latter option, and you're prompted for your YouTube user name and password.

The game then uploads the clip on the spot, showing a progress bar while you wait for the upload to complete.

I personally find Youtube on the ps3 a bit to clunky (sorry) to warrant watching it on the PS3 over the PC.

i just wish there would be a screen recorder in the ps3 on the next update, i cant afford the dazzle stuff, and i dont have the right cords, at least i tried them and nothing happened, or i set up the screen wrong, but it didnt work, so there definitely should be a screen recorder in the next update.

who agrees?

for a better quality video, its still easier to download the youtube video and convert it for a mp4 file, and play it with a usb key.. at least i think its better as this.
