Question from joelralph21
Does PS3 play avi files?
I have seen at a few different places that the PS3 plays avi files, but then other places only say mp4 etc. I was wondering which is the case, and also how to play them. Can you play from a CD, or can you copy an avi file from CD to the hard drive without linux and play it?

but just because it says AVI doesn't mean it will play them, AVI is a container, and the PS3 will only play certain codecs held within the container. Hope that makes sense
You can copy the files over to the PS3 on a USB device
But if they wont play you could burn them to a disk (not a data disk but as a video disk like an actual DVD) and then play them, at a guess ones that don't play should play on a disk, haven't tried that though

Playstation 3 will play most any of these without problems.
