Trying to get PS3 to play media files from my PC
So I'm trying to set up a media server on my ps3 with the hope that I may be able to remote play from my PSP and watch stuff wirelessly within the house.
I've got the Media Server stuff set up, gone into WMP11, enabled library, added my folders and video files and such. The PS3 recognizes all of this and I can see all my video files with preview pictures from the video file. However, when I try to play them on the PS3, a huge majority of my video files come up with the error "Unsupported data." Anybody know why that is? They are mostly divx files I believe, and even if they aren't, the PS3 seems to be able to pick out a preview image of the video file for when I'm scrolling through my folder. Out of a dozen or so video files (I have many more in my folder, I just checked a few to test things out), maybe one or two of them will work. I thought it'd probably be an incompatible video codec thing, but here's the weird thing; When I go to check the details on the files from within the PS3, all of them come up as blank for the video codec (it shows as a dash to signify nothing), even for the video files that work.
Anybody know what's up with this? Are my video files not divx after all? Would I have to convert every single file to be ps3 compatible...? Cuz shoot...that would not be very cool at all :\
