Using AviDemux 2.4.1 to convert a video to h.264 mpeg4 for the Sony Playstation 3

Hi all,

After trial and error, I finally figured out how to convert an old divx 3 (you know, the old hacked version of the codec) video file to a format that my Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) could handle.  Why is it that Sony has made the PS3 to be such a finicky beast when it comes to reading video files, I will never know:

How to convert a video file using AviDemux v2.4.1 on Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron):

  • Load the original video file into AviDemux
  • Auto -> PSP (H.264) – choose defaults

  • Video -> Configure -> 2 Pass

  • Format -> MP4

  • Save with the extension “.mp4″

If you’re going to put the video on an USB thumbdrive, you will need to create a folder:

  • On the USB Thumbdrive:   VIDEO
  • Group videos with subdirectories:  VIDEO / SCIFI
