Hi there,

Fuppes (installed on Hardy) is generally working, but I can't transcode anything, so I decided to try transcoding manually, and the playstation 3 just won't play anything that I create with ffmpeg.

I have an input file AVI_DivX.avi that plays on the PS3:

Input #0, avi, from 'AVI_DivX.avi':
  Duration: 00:00:33.9, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 2225 kb/s
  Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg4, yuv420p, 352x240, 29.97 fps(r)
  Stream #0.1: Audio: pcm_s16le, 44100 Hz, stereo, 1411 kb/s

So I run this to try to clone the file exactly, basically "convert" to the same type:

sudo ffmpeg -i AVI_DivX.avi -f avi -vcodec mpeg4 -acodec pcm_s16le AVI_DivX_2.avi

Here is the output file's info:

Input #0, avi, from 'AVI_DivX_2.avi':
  Duration: 00:00:33.9, start: 0.000000, bitrate: 1780 kb/s
  Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg4, yuv420p, 352x240, 29.97 fps(r)
  Stream #0.1: Audio: pcm_s16le, 44100 Hz, stereo, 1411 kb/s

However the PS3, when trying to play this new file through fuppes, returns "The data type is not supported. (800288C0)".  New file's permissions are identical to the old's.  New file plays on Windows media player as well.

Ideas? 

Thanks for the input.
