Music Artwork Doesn't Show + Video Playback Help

10 Replies 559 Views Created 29-04-2012

Hey guys,

 

So I've put all my music on my PS3, but the thing is that a lot of artwork doesn't show...

The second thing I need help with is FLAC/apple lossless files... they aren't playable :smileysad:

The third problem is that whenever I play a vid, it continues from where I left off.. I want to start from the beginning again ... any help ?

 

A fourth problem that I have is that when I sort my music files by artist , they aren't separated by album it's just a list of all the music by that person... Now it's like ARTIST -> ALL TRACKS (sorted by album)
what I want is this => ARTIST -> ALBUM1 -> TRACKS (of that album
     -> ALBUM 2 -> ...

Thanks !

Don't use USB HDD to transfer music to the PS3 HDD use a media server that will transfer the Meta data unaltered for all file types from M4A, MP3, PCM, WAV, WMA2,  

Itunes does not keep the art work in the meta data for the file, So you need the media server to reembed the picture data WMP won't do this.   


The second thing I need help with is FLAC/apple lossless files... they aren't playable :smileysad:
Open source is never going to be supportted as there is no regulator to make a standard and fix bugs that might come up later. This applies to Video not just Audio, ( H264 not X264, DivX not Xvid. M2TS Not MKV ) 

Copyrighted technology from Apple needs a commercial license which belongs to Apple to issue.

NONE of this is needed as PS3 supports music in its native Sold as formats. M4A MP3 PCM WAV. HDD space is not expensive any more. The PS3 and PCs are now upgradable so cheaply compression files are not needed. 


The third problem is that whenever I play a vid, it continues from where I left off.. I want to start from the beginning again ... any help ?

Press triangle then press x on start from the start option

 

A fourth problem that I have is that when I sort my music files by artist , they aren't separated by album it's just a list of all the music by that person... Now it's like ARTIST -> ALL TRACKS (sorted by album)

Thats not what your selecting with square button your only selecting the first filter with square button.

Once your in side the Artist Album you then Sort from there with theTriangle button>Sort>Album name is all you can do, It just removes the Secondary folder filter on PS3. Other wise if you only wanted one album to display you would pick album name filter with square button first.


Yep Currently SCE gives users to much credit buy expecting them to know, what music they put on the HDD in the first place.

The use of DLNA Media servers to stream files over LAN, removed the need to store media content on the PS3 HDD now.

Answer 1 : I don't really get what you mean by media server, is it a sort of program never heard of something likt that before :smileytongue: i'm not really a tech person ? I just put everything on this HDD and it seems to work fine, maybe the sound isn't the same high quality (320kbps, most files) :s

 

Answer 2 : I don't really know what you mean by this : NONE of this is needed as PS3 supports music in its native Sold as formats. M4A MP3 PCM WAV. HDD space is not expensive any more. The PS3 and PCs are now upgradable so cheaply compression files are not needed

 

Answer 3 : That I don't get at all , so my question was : 'when i stop watching a music video and then put it on again , it starts of where i left off , i want the video files to start from the beginning every time i click on them :smileyhappy: 

 

Answer 4 : I get that .. :smileytongue: Not a big problem actually =) 

 

Extra : I don't really understand what the meaning of this is ?

Use google to look up PS3MS and Tversity. They both will allow the PS3 to keep the art work from the music files when copied to PS3. they have there own sites that explain better.

Flac was a Compressed Music file open source solution that was come up with, because HDD space used to cost £100 for 40GB, now you can buy 1TB of space for less than £100. Compressing files is no longer needed. 

 

Answer 3 : That I don't get at all , so my question was : 'when i stop watching a music video and then put it on again , it starts of where i left off , i want the video files to start from the beginning every time i click on them :smileyhappy: 

Instead of pressing x on a video, Press triangle when over a video on XMB, then, press x on start  the file from begining option on the list of options 

 

Answer 4 : I get that .. :smileytongue: Not a big problem actually =)

When you look up what a media server can do this will make sense.

 

Thank you for all your help GraphiteGB !

1: Media servers let you stream content wirelessly from your PC. Windows Media center has one (albeit a crap one) built in.

 

2: Basically, Sony don't own the rights to it, so they can't provide it at the moment. Also, it's not very mainstream so most don't even notice.

 

3: Unfortunately there isn't an option to always play from the beginning as most people don't like that and get frustrated by it. If you want to play from the beginning either you'll need to press triangle and choose it each time, or hit L1 as soon as you press play.

 

4: Cool :smileyhappy:

 

5: He is referring to the fact that there are lots of features which make the use of media on the PS3 really easy, however they're poorly documented and rely on the assumption that everyone fully understands them

The server connection is for streaming, so the data stays on the computer and is just viewed from the PS3 :smileywink:
