I've been reading MRoogle (any maybe looking in the wrong place) but I bought a PS3 lastnight. I recently converted all my DVD and Blu Ray rips to the Apple TV format. I would like to see how everything works with streaming to the PS3 vs. the mac mini.

The PS3 won't play my rips with MediaLink...any ideas?

Try a PS3-based forum?

Well, since you supply very little info. Who knows ? However one thought is *if* you used HandBrake's AppleTV preset you ended up with 64 bit mp4's ... which the PS3 will not play. Just a shot in the dark.

I had the same problem with my PS3 though to be honest, I'd already planned on getting a mac mini so wasn't really concerned.

I've never used it myself but have seen numerous mention of PS3 Media Server. Supposedly it encodes to a PS3 friendly format on the fly. The downside I would guess is that quality of a twice encoded file probably isn't great.

I could be completely wrong here but I don't think the PS3 supports AC3 audio in a M4V container. So using the AppleTV preset will give you a file containing AC3 audio. Try encoding a new file using the ATV preset but remove the AC3 audio track and see if it works.

It supports h264 movies with an AC3 soundtrack, I just don't know if it supports movies with a default AC3 soundtrack. It may, I've never tried it.

try renaming the files to mp4 if they are in m4v

As I said I could be wrong but I think the PS3 only supports AC3 audio in an mkv container and not in an m4v or mp4 container. I think thats why when you use the PS3 preset in Handbrake it sets the container as mp4 and removes the AC3 track.
