Stream/Play VOB/IFO/ISO on PS3

8 Replies 25,322 Views Created 25-05-2008

Hi,

 

As far as I know it's not possible to stream and play ISO/VOB/IFO formats directly on my PS3 (DLNA/UPnP) without modding

This would be a great addition to the PS3. For me it would mean cleaning out my livingroom of all DVD's/BluRays and putting them on one big NAS.

 

Come on Sony let's get busy Smiley Wink ..... you would do me a big favour

 

Regards,

Re: Stream/Play VOB/IFO/ISO on PS3

You can play single .VOB-files on your PS3 with some limits:

- You can not choose subtitles, audio-track or anything else.

- It has to be in a single .VOB-files.

- I believe chapter-info is lost.

 

But just rename the .VOB to .MP4, and you can play it on the PS3.

Anyone have any idea if this will ever happen?! + will the PS3 be able to upscale these from a NAS? This would be an awesome update!

Re: Stream/Play VOB/IFO/ISO on PS3

Not realy likely As VOB is the extension for DVD only. as already posted else were MPG is the extension used for Mpeg2 files when not on DVD.  Mpeg2 Video is already playable, the other files are needed purely for the DVD player software. Real DVD recorders also spit recordings in to multi VOB files, its just how DVD works.

Re: Stream/Play VOB/IFO/ISO on PS3

I know that this is old but you can use PS3MediaServer.  You can have ISO files stored anywhere on your computer.  Navigate via your PS3 to the ISO file. 

 

PS3MediaServer will open up the ISO file and show you all of the main Movie Files.  Select the one with the longest time (which is normally your movie) and bam.

 

PS3MediaServer has an option to auto add the subtitles which works.  You can switch this on and off.

 

Since you don't have the menu, you press the square button (Scene Search) and then change the time interval to like 2 or 5 minutes.  And you can use this to pick a scene you want to see.

Re: Stream/Play VOB/IFO/ISO on PS3

Thank  you Sitron_NO, I renamed the file to MPG and it is working, wow what an idea!!!. Surprisingly even VOB started playing earlier it did not but renaming to MP4 did not work though. PS3 does not even show the file. Any way my problem is solved thank you once again.

Re: Stream/Play VOB/IFO/ISO on PS3

DVD's are already on a media server and i gatta say it's prolly more work for me to re convert them from IFO format to something that will play than it is for Sony to do a system update to and allow these features to work

Sony dont have to do anything Media server software is not there developement area.

Thats for Private software developers to do.  

Besides I can allready stream DVD files via media server as My media server is not junk. 

Also opens RAR and ZIP archives as well...
