Playstation Anyone?

Question

After a long frustrating day with multiple installations - 2009 finally works - now i am trying to have some fun.

 

Has anyone figured out the best settings for burning a dist so that you have the best quality watching a movie with their playstation?

 

Is mpeg-4 (h.264/avc) or divX the way to go? (I think divX is limited to 2 GB file limit). I think the divX support is fairly new and you need a firmware 2.1 or so.

Has anyone tried a different framerate?

Has anyone tried any of the screen adaptations?

Has anyone tried any of the multiple choices of output resolution?

 

I have spent the last hour searching the roxio web site and all I can find documented is that you can now make videos that will work on the Playstation. I can't find any instructions or suggestions for best perfomance.

 

Has anyone found any information? If I figure out anything I'll pass it on.

I think you should first find out what formats Playstation will accept :unsure:

PS3 has a Blu-ray player. I'm guessing that is what the poster has since he mentioned MPEG4/H.264. Here are the output settings and bitrates:

 

AVC better Quality = 800x450@1.95Mbps

AVC good quality = 640x260@1Mbps

AVC smaller size = 480x270@1Mbps

AVCHD 1080i = 1920X1080@4.88Mbps 24fps

AVCHD 720p = 1280x720@4.88Mbps 24fps

 

Bluray AVC EP = 1280x720@6.84Mbps 24fps

Bluray AVC HQ = 1280x720@14.65Mbps 24fps

Bluray AVC LP (NTSC) = 1440x1080@9.77Mbps, interlaced

Bluray AVC SP (NTSC) = 1920X1080@11.72Mbps, interlaced

 

Bluray EP = 1280x720@15Mbps 24fps

Bluray HQ = 1920x1080@30Mbps 24fps

Bluray LP (NTSC) = 1440X1080@20Mbps, interlaced

Bluray SP (NTSC) = 1920X1080@25Mbps, interlaced

 

I can only assume those not labelled interlaced are rendered as progressive and those last four are probably HDV.

So to answer your question, Bluray SP should give you 'best' quality if you have a Bluray burner. If you are burning to regular DVD or dual layer DVD, choose one of the AVC outputs to get more on the disc.

 

There is also an option in MyDVD to create a AVCHD on standard DVDs. Have no idea what those settings are, but you get about 40min on 4.7GB disc and 1 hr 13min on 8.5GB disc with menus. Slightly more without menus.
