I’m having some mysterious behaviour with various .avi files ‘sourced’ from the internet.
the MBL is plugged into an Airport Extreme which is in turn plugged into a PS3.
The .avi file dropped into the Shared Videos folder refuses to play on the PS3. However it plays happily if copied onto a USB stick which is plugged straight into the PS3, or using Playback and wirelessly streaming it to the PS3 form my Macbook. So the file is not at fault. Most .avi’s play perfectly well and this is a recent file.
What is odd is that on some occassions the file doesn’t play one day - but plays the next day.
Any idea what could be going on? This has happened several times and for a brand new system that I hoped would
happily store ALL my video it’s pretty disappointing…
