First time visitor. I have encountered a major problem. Since a while back I cannot playback media content on my PS3 that has been stored on my MacBook Pro and uploaded to my WD MyBook World Edition (1 disk, white lights).
This problem started occurring just a couple of weeks ago! If I rip a DVD on my MBP and upload the AVI container into my shared directory on my NAS directly through finder, this works like a sharm. Later I turn on my PS3, it finds the server, finds the folders and finds the movie file. I open the file for playback and this is where it breaks. The playback stops instantly and I get the screen: Filetype not supported. Here’s the kicker, if I use my PC to download the file and then upload it again through the PC, playback work as it always has!
I should add that I have restored the NAS to factory settings, updated the firmware and the problem is still there.
I have also tried different file transfer solutions; mac fusion uploads the file (progress bar shown) until there’s about 10 sec left, then the operation breaks tellin’ me that i do not have sufficient wright to write the file?
I find this behavior very strange, has anyone encountered anything similar, or have a proposal to a solution?
____ UPDATE ____
So, files uploaded directly via finder on my Mac cannot be streamed on the PS3, filetype not supported!
Files uploaded via SFTP macFusion cannot be completed due to insuficient privelidges!
Files uploaded by two other available SFTP clients (muCommander and FUGU) works like charm and are playable directly!
Why is this? Any guess as to why the system would behave this way?
