It's just a container, audio/video is exactly the same as it was in the mkv file.

You do actually use mkv2vob right?

In the configuration you can output file extension to mpg/mt2s/vob/mp4/avi.

Use VOB or MPG - MKV2VOB does say MPG offers the best playback compatibility though.

Have you got boost AAC/DTS audio checked?

will it remux also or convert the files

MKV2VOB if left on automatic under transcoder, will only transcode if NEEDED - File won't play on PS3/most 1080p content/if you use subs.

It will always remux if it can.

My muxing is constantly failing, this is beginning to drive me crazy.

I'm using the settings listed in the opening post, and I've installed CCCP.

I have the same problem. The fact that mk2vob doesn't have descriptive errors when the file fails doesn't help things either. I reverted back to manually converting mkv files to mp4 using 4 different apps because so far it's the only thing that works for me. What other apps fail at (like Gotsent as well), I manage to convert just fine albeit the long way about it

Aha, I am not alone. I'm still trying to figure it out, but the lack of descriptive errors (as you mentioned) is indeed a bitch.

I has a question.

Is it possible to run both Windows Media Player 11's sharing thing, AND TVersity, on the same (Vista) PC? I tried it a while back and it didn't seem to work at all, the PS3 only seemed to pick up the WMP11 library.

See, it would be easier, because at the moment I have to use mkv2vob on my own PC, then copy the files to my laptop to make it stream through TVersity, which is annoying.

You can indeed, I have both running - I have no reason too really, but the PS3 is connected to both TVersity and WMP11, as is the 360.

Slightly off topic, but is there any decent, free avi to mp4 converters available? I have a few avi's that wont play on the PS3.

Would really depend on what sort of signal you are getting from the shared wireless connection, and what band is being used. If its a normal G band router and the signal is around 50% or lower then I would think you would still receive lag. If, however the band is G+, Mimo, or even N (if the card in the PC can accept these signals) with a decent 75%+ signal, and then you wire to the PS3, you may have some joy.

Thanks, I'll give it a go.

As for TVersity, have you made sure that the mediaserver.exe is allowed, and not just the TVersity entry?

If you stop the WMP11 sharing does TVersity work?

      Sony announces Airpeak S1 drone tailored for its Alpha series cameras
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony has just introduced its professional drone dubbed the Airpeak S1. As per the Japanese company, the Airpeak S1 is the world's smallest drone that can fly with a full-size mirrorless Alpha camera onboard.

      The drone is equipped with a proprietary motor and a 17" propeller for stable flight even during windy conditions. Sony claims that the drone has a lightweight yet sturdy body. The Airpeak has a maximum speed of 55 miles per hour (90km/h). It can withstand wind speeds of up to 44.7mph.

      It uses image sensors, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), barometric pressure, and infrared ranging to optimize the flight path. There's an Electric Speed Controller (ESC) for high maneuverability and an obstacle detection system to avoid mishaps.

      The Airpeak S1 is compatible with Sony's Alpha 7S series, Alpha 7R series, and the Alpha 9 series. The latest Alpha 1 capable of shooting footage in 8k is also compatible with this drone.



      Sony's Airpeak Base web application enables users to create flight plans and check the vitals of the drone before the next flight. Sony claims that it is possible to make the drone fly along a predetermined route without real-time input. Customers can use the Android and iOS companion app to track the drone, check battery status, and even access gimbal settings. The drone offers a dual operation mode that enables one user to control the drone while the other operates the camera.

      The Airpeak S1 drone is priced at $9,000 and will ship to customers in the fall of 2021. The retail package includes an additional set of propellers. However, users will have to purchase a gimbal separately. As per Sony, the drone is made in Japan and comes with an Airpeak Protect Plan, which covers accidental damage.

      Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility. The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats.

      Horizon Forbidden West gameplay reveal has boss fight with a machine elephant
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      As promised, Guerrilla Games showed off Horizon Forbidden West's gameplay for the first time today. The State of Play had footage captured on the PlayStation 5 as the developer used a short 14-minute rescue mission to highlight the flashy visuals, combat moves, returning and new foes, and more. The full reveal can be seen above.

      The mission has Aloy pursuing a group of raiders from the Tenakth tribe who has taken an ally, Erend, seen in the first game hostage. The gorgeous jungle, underwater environments, the Shieldwing (Aloy's new glider), as well as machine and human foes all get close-ups in the trailer. The finale is a frantic boss fight against a machine elephant (Tremortusk) that has a Lord of the Rings style mount on top to hold multiple bow-wielding enemies.

      Here's how the developer describes the upcoming entry's setting:

      Horizon Forbidden West will be launching on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Unfortunately, the game does not have a firm release date yet. Although in the original announcement last year Sony said the game is targeting a 2021 launch, it's unclear if this is still the plan.

      Horizon Forbidden West gameplay will be shown at the next State of Play
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Nearly a year ago, Sony announced Horizon Forbidden West, a sequel to the action RPG Horizon Zero Dawn from 2017. While the announcement only carried a cinematic trailer giving glimpses at what's next for Aloy in her journey to parts of America, series developer Guerrilla Games will soon show off the sequel's gameplay for the first time.

      Sony's next State of Play broadcast is set for May 27, and it has a 20-minute segment prepared just for Horizon Forbidden West, from which 14 minutes will be in-game footage from the upcoming adventure.

      "This reveal has been a true team effort and we’re very excited to show you what we have in store," Guerilla Games game director Mathijs de Jonge says. "Whether you’ve been with us and Aloy since Horizon Zero Dawn or are only just getting to know this incredible world, we want to share this huge milestone with you and cannot wait to see your favorite moments and reactions."

      On May 27 a special State of Play pre-show will begin at 9AM PDT / 5PM BST / 6PM CEST followed by the main event at 2PM PDT / 10PM BST / 11PM CEST. The broadcast can be caught on both YouTube and Twitch channels of PlayStation.

      Horizon Forbidden West has a 2021 launch window attached to it and is headed for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. The series also debuted on PC last year, with Horizon Zero Dawn launching on the platform.
