How to Fix PS3 Video Playback issue?

PS3 (Play Station 3) is so good at playing high-quality video files, you can say that now, although it has been over a decade since its first release. The graphics processing unit of PS3, Nvidia RSX "Reality Synthesizer" supports resolutions from 480i/576i SD up to 1080p HD, and helps PS3 become more than just a game console but a household video playback device on which you can play DVD and even 3D movies.

Despite the astonishing video playback performance of PS3, there's a messy fact: not all video formats are supported by PS3. In order to play any video on PS3 at will, converting unsupported video files is the best solution. You should get yourself a reliable video converter for PS3. Here's one I recommend for you from my personal intensive experiments.

TIPS: Learn about the PS3 video formats and check whether your videos are supported by PS3.
