I think one of the internet upgrades for the PS3 added the avi capability.  So if you haven't connected to the internet since you bought it, this may be the problem.

I think there is an option for a remote download and install

The latest version 2.60 supports DivX

Cheers

RAE1: I noticed someone called me a "his" so I thought I better put a pink dress on.  Are there no boy/girl settings on these profiles?

If you have your PS3 connected to the Internet it will notify of new firmware upgrades. One of the recent ones (divx is not that recent) is the ability to upscale content (and apply various noise reduction filters) on content played via the XMB rather than just DVD's

Yeah I had previously only got 2.56 I think it was, not sure.  This DivX addition should hopefully address this.

I doubt it.  Previous version was 2.53.  DivX support was added back in 2.10, only DivX 3.11 support was added in 2.60.  I don't download illegal TV shows, but if I did I would think that they would all work perfectly fine on my PS3, including the HD .mkv ones, after a simple remux.

Damn, had hoped this was a sure bet.  will still upgrade, but will see how it goes.

Care to elaborate on the remux concept, and is this a quick process, or does it require the whole file to be re encoded?

With the scenes love for obsolete codecs and irrelevent file sizes it wouldnt suprise me if some of them were still in divx 3, particually with the unknown lineage of them

Also there is a wide variety of 4cc's used on encoded stuff - nero had an option to fix it when burning which I needed to use with some to get them to play on a divx capable dvd player - could be as simple as them being set to something that the ps3 doesnt.

Doesn't recode, just repackages in a new container.  It really only applies to HD files though as PS3 supports DivX.  I'm sure my friend has watched the latest Lost on his PS3 so it must be some problem with yours.  What is the file name/type?  Run it through Gspot or something similar and list the info given.

Jaxson: Slight variation about avi files, anyone had any issues playing downloaded TV episodes on PS3?  I got given 5 files last night: first greys, first lost, first 3 L word of latest series, so a good mix of files.  All standard download .mpg or .avi, I can't remember which. 

Played on computer no problems using win media player but PS3 either said they were corrupted or didn't even find/offer them when on a usb stick.  found music on the usb stick, but no go with video, so in end none played via ps3.  Will play on my philips hdd recorder when on blank cd/dvd.

How are others getting on with this?
Cheers.


I have the same issue with some media content (movies/ TV).  Basically the.AVI file type is just a container for serveral formats (Xvid, Divx, mpeg-n...).  Only some of these will play on my PS3, so you need to repackage them in a format this is playable on the PS3.  Check out other threads on how this can be achieved and which softwares are available.




Cheers, Stevo
