“I was overjoyed to see that Froyo JPO camera records in MP4 rather than in old cruddy 3GP. And, oh the disappointment when i tried to use allshare (and twonky mobile) to play the recorded MP4s back (720p)... Its unplayable on PS3...
Is there a way to fix the CAMERA to record standard MP4s ? I know my PS3 plays MP4s - i've tried that. But for some reason not Galaxy S generated content...
Galaxy S I9000, unbranded official froyo JPO. Any ideas ?”
Like Galaxy S, the Samsung Galaxy S II(2) also records 720p videos in MP4 format with 3GP4 codec ID. Actually the 3GP4 codec MP4 files are not in the list of codecs the PS3 can decode. So it is necessary to convert 3GP4 to a more friendly codec for PS3 such as H.264 MP4, MPEG-4 MP4 and more. A good 3GP4 to PS3 Converter is needed, like Foxreal Video Converter or Foxreal Video Converter for Mac, which can fast convert 3GP4 to H.264, MPEG-4, etc for PS3 with great quality.
Just follow the steps as below:
Step 1: Run Foxreal Video Converter as the perfect 3GP4 to H.264/MPEG-4 Converter on your computer, and then add your 3GP4 encoded MP4 files into this program.
Step 2: Choose MPEG-4 or H.264 MP4 video format for PS3 by clicking on “Format < PSP/PS3” where you could easily select your wanted MP4 format with the specified video resolution.
Step 3: Start 3GP4 to H.264 or 3GP4 to MPEG4 MP4 conversion for PS3 by clicking on “Convert” on the fast 3GP4 MP4 to PS3 Converter's main interface.
After the three operations, you could get the converted .mp4 files from the default folder and then you could watch them on your big TV via PS3.
That's all! Hope the playing Galaxy S2 Camera MP4 Videos on PS3 article helps!
