MP4 720p movies does not work, please!

Added by noobie best over 9 years ago

I know this has probably come up a lot but mp4 720p movies don't work, it just freezes.

Converting it to mkv is a solution however i don't have my ps3 everywhere around the house and at my friends house, so i can't watch it in my room etc. as my tv does not support mkv.

So if showtime could support mp4, that means it would support pretty much every file type which is awesome. So please Oman make it happen :D

Mp4 support, crash fix and themes would even make me pay for showtime.

This has always been the case that Showtime does not play mp4 files level 4.1. Showtime will play other levels of mp4. I too have mp4 files that just won't play in Showtime which means the only way to play them is not in Showtime but using the PS3 video player as this works just fine. Or if you do insist in playing the file in Showtime you have to mkv them which takes minutes to do using mkvmerge. I can't remember exactly why they won't play but I think its something to do with libavm FFmpeg which Showtime uses to play the videos. I'm not 100% certain though.

Does anyone know whether oman is planning to fix this? it is really the only format missing and unfortunately it is used widely.

If i play it on the default ps3 player, cinivia comes up which is annoying.

Doesn't the PS3 play MP4 natively from the OS anyways?

You should create a new issue, press the "New Issue" button above and report it as a bug and then attach a file (that does not work) with the ticket.

I have a lot of MP4 files that work OK so there must be something wrong with your files. Therefore I need one to figure out what's wrong.

It's all the MP4 720p blu ray movies that lag, the ones with 1280x500 or higher resolution.

I get them from torrents and basically all the mp4 and AVC files don't work.

Basically most blu ray on torrent that are not mkv format will be mp4 and avc.which does not work.
