  1. Pretty much as expected, Not a bad list.

  2. Not bad, I hope that list grows for the video formats. I’m a mac guy, so I would like to see .mov supported as well ๐Ÿ™‚

    They forgot VC1 and WMA. VC1 is supported in the upcoming Blu-Ray movies.

  4. Not to be rude or so, but I dont like .mov

    In the early days, one was forced to install crap (quicktime) to one computer to watch these files and now, they are (often) just annoying slow (Apples HD trailers, which dont run fluently in quicktime, but in vlc on my less capable linux box).

    I prefer the usual standards (mp1-mp4) and of course the open source stuff (ogm, mkv etc.), because other stuff oftern breaks my linux box (wmv often just doesnt work).

    I am pretty impressed, they support h264 and mpeg4 avc out of the box for private media. German DVB-S2 HDTV is sent in h264 and my pcs are too slow to play them… So I can just view them on the PS3 ๐Ÿ˜€ Very cool indeed !!

    And, that it supports MPEG2 ts (DVB streams) is cool to, no more encoding stuff, to play it!!

    The others are MANDATORY in my opinion, and I like it, that I dont need a pc to view that stuff (unlike the 360, afaik).

    Isnt VC1 a h264 “divert”? I really dont like, that MS pushes into the codec market (on discs). Often their codecs are slow, bad quality and plain incompatible.

  5. That’s not rude, it’s just a different opinion.

    Personally, I prefer QuickTime files. I think they play more reliably, and are good quality.

    Now that you mention it..I beleive your right Segitz. I remember HD-DVD to Blu-ray arguments were that blu-ray would not support vc1

  7. Bรธrten

    Hmmm?

    .avi..? anyone?

    ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Blu-ray DOES support VC1. Warner Brothers even released some BD movies with VC1.

  9. ehandlr

    Aye thats what I was saying. Earlier on, there was no info supporting vc1.

  11. No DivX!!!!
