    Hi all,

    I've been having a good time with Fuppes.  It's the best upnp for linux I've found.

    I'm currently using it with my PS3.  I'm trying to figure out what I can "just stream" and what I need to transcode (and furthermore, how to successfully do that).

    I have an avi file that just shows up as "unsupported data" on the PS3.  Running "file" on it reveals:

    $ file sample.avi
    sample.avi: RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 1280 x 544, 23.98 fps, video: DivX 5, audio: (5 channels, 48000 Hz)
    $ file -i sample.avi
    sample.avi: video/x-msvideo

    Anyone with a PS3 out there know why this wouldn't work?  I have other avi/divx5 videos that stream to it just fine.  I've verified that this particular file plays just fine in mplayer. 

    Here's a url to the file if anyone can help:

    Thank you
