    Question Watcing videos on my PS3

    Hey Guys

    I just bought my PS3 over the weekend and this is my very first post!

    I wouldn't normally ask stupid questions but my manual is in German/Italian/Frence/Dunch... No English

    How do I copy videos, pictures and movies onto my console? Is this even possible? if so what format do they need to be?

    Or do i have to stream then (not practical for me)?

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum

    Format that works on the ps3 .avi .mp3 .mp4. .wmv .m4v

    your HDD or memory stick must be FAT32.

    if you plug the memory stick in press triangle and select display all

    navigate to the video menu item on your ps3, browse down to your flash drive (yes it will appear under your menu items when inserted), press TRIANGLE when the flash drive is selected and click on "show all" or something like that, now you can navigate through your flash drive and sub folders.

    I really would suggest streaming tho, just setup a wireless network at home (to make it more convenient than using cables) and use the ps3 media server to stream, much easier to organise your files and saves space on your ps3.

    if you have videos on the flash then videos if you have picks then pictures.

    if you want in the flash drive you can make a folder PS3 in PS3 folder make a VIDEO folder, then in there all you videos then you don't have to press triangle.

    Example: F:\PS3\VIDEO

    all caps
