    I'm not sure if this is the exact board to be posting under, but there is where I found the most information on streaming 1080p to the PS3. If a moderator wishes to move please do so.

    What I am attempting to do is backup my HD-DVD collection to .m2ts and stream to my PS3. I have began using the following process with much success. By the way I'm attempting to do as much as possible in OSX and avoid encoding in VMWare.

    1. Rip with AnyDVD-HD
    2. Extract raw .h264 and DTS-HD/TrueHD with Eac3to
    3. Convert DTS-HD/TrueHD to LPCM with Eac3to
    4. Mux with TSmuxer into .m2ts

    After a few rips, my wife began requesting subtitles (english is a second language for her) so I began extracting the .sup and converting to .srt via an OCR process.

    My first attempt was to use PS3MediaServer to encode on the fly with the .srt, but I have yet to find a computer that will handle encoding 1080p without stuttering and audio sync issues.

    So I decided to just hardcode the subtitles. I've been using the following mencoder command

    Code:
    mencoder -oac copy -ovc x264  -subfont /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home/lib/fonts/LucidaSansRegular.ttf -subfont-text-scale 3 -subfont-outline 1 -subfont-blur 1 -subpos 86  -x264encopts threads=auto:frameref=3:subq=6:bframes=3:level_idc=41:partitions=all:mixed_refs:b_adapt:weight_b:b_pyramid:partitions=all:8x8dct:direct_pred=auto:trellis=1:vbv_maxrate=22000:vbv_bufsize=22000:crf=20   _movie.h264  -sub movie.srt  -o movie_SUBS_CRF20.h264
    This works fine on approximately 80% of my movies. However, on the others I am finding something unusual. If I mux the untouched video, and the LPCM audio, I get a viewable movie. If I mux the encoded video with the LPCM audio, I get "unsupported data format". If I extract the DTS core to an AC3 file, and mux with the encoded video, I get a watchable video. For some reason, the LPCM audio, with the encoded video, is unwatchable. I thought perhaps it was a maximum bitrate issue (the LPCM file is a constant 6.9 MBPS) but I've dropped the max_rate and vbv_buffsize to 16000 with no luck. I'm searching for any clue as to why the combination of two files that work find on their own, will not work together. Below is the dump from video spec for the three files. If anyone here needs me to dump information from another program, just let me know.

    I'm also open to suggestions of other places to go search for answers. It is getting frustrating encoding a movie for 6 hours and not knowing if it will work. The worst thing is that you can encode just a clip to test with, and it will work, but the movie as a whole will not =(

  3. You can load .EVO files directly in multiAVCHD without any reencoding/conversion and you'll get AVCHD/Blu-ray structure to use with your Blu-ray player or Playstation 3.

    The best way to accomplish this is to use external USB HDD with your PS3.

    The whole process of converting a title/movie will take just few minutes and you can have subtitles (sup/srt/ssa/vobsub), audio DTS/LPCM/AC3/TrueHD/DTS-MA/HRA... etc...

    Using multiAVCHD will let your PS3 go into Blu-ray player mode, which offers much more than the regular XMB player (when you play files directly) and much-much more than streaming.

    Thanks I will look into multiAVCHD, it appears to solve the problem of AVCHDme where you can only have one AVCHD folder per disk.

    Edited for content.

  5. It is a limitation and you can have only ONE active AVCHD folder to be recognized by the PS3 (when using external HDD).

    But you can:

    1) Put many titles (movies) in one AVCHD folder with multiAVCHD or
    2) Create many AVCHD folders on your USB HDD:

    AVCHD_Movie1
    AVCHD_Movie2
    AVCHD_test
    ...

    And when you want to "activate" one of them - simply rename it to "AVCHD" and it will be the one recognized by your PS3.

    A program that eases the rename/organise process is AVCHDManager.
