ps3 wont see video files on usb stick?

10 Replies 5,210 Views Created 17-06-2011
Hi, I got some phone clips on a usb stick I took off of my blackberry but the psr doesn't see these files, is the ps3 picky and only play certain files? Do I need to convert these files and what to?

Try pressing triangle on the USB stick icon and selecting 'display all'.

You would need a Media server to (Stream / convert those .3gp files) so the ps3 can play them I would guess, as the ps3 does not have native .3gp support
