CodecSys H.264 Encoder API for PS3 / OtherOS Reversed

750°
246w ago - For those who didn't update to PS3 Firmware v3.21 yet, here is CodecSys H.264 Encoder API for PS3/OtherOS reversed.

When CodecSys version 1.3 came out I gave it a try and liked the speed you get, just sucks that you're quite limited concerning cropping and stuff, even multiple passes is disabled for the PS3 version.

So I did take a look at it. I usually hate .Net but in this case it made things a lot easier and by a lot I mean a lot. Long things short, I reversed mosted of the api dll which connects to the PS3 and stuff and used it to encode some frames.

Rebooting and stuff works as well, the cecom running on the PS3 seems to be buggy though and doesn't reboot to game_os for me, not even with the original application. Attached source is more or less based on QT, and still a work in progress, just wanted to share it.

H.264 Encoder is Coming to Sony's PlayStation 3 Console

296w ago - Here's another way to harness the power of the PS3's Cell chip, to quote:

Fixstars Corporation of Japan has announced CodecSys CE-10, the first H.264 encoder that's designed specifically for the PS3. The product will be showcased at the National Association of Broadcasters show in Las Vegas starting April 20th.

The CE-10 software will be installed on a PC, but will somehow allow users to access the power of the PS3 as a way of accelerating video encoding. Fixstars is promising "ultra fast HD encoding" and "high quality low bit rate compression," targeted at the prosumer market at a prosumer price.

When questioned further on how the PS3 would interface with the CE-10 program, we were provided this rather useful document (pictured below).

It appears the PS3 will need Linux installed, severely limiting its accessibility to all but hardcore PS3 owners. Considering the rather specific demands of this application, perhaps that makes sense.

CE-10 will be available for purchase in June 2009. For burgeoning HD filmmakers, this should be a very cheap way of turning the PS3 into a powerful piece of video hardware.
