Default Can the PS3 play .mp4 files from data disc?

so im not sure if this is where this thread belongs, but hopefully someone who knows the answer will find it :-)

I have about 60 DVDs ripped onto my hard drive (shhhh ) so I can play them without changing discs and all that. if I burned these movies (.mp4 files) on a single blu-ray disc, and popped it in the ps3, would it be able to play all of these movies?

my intuition says it should....but does anyone know the answer? I guess I could test it first with a data DVD.

u can find all the files that the ps3 can play since 2.0 update i assume if your files are H.264 so it should work first see if it works on a normal dvd disc should matter if it dvd or blu-ray

yeah, I wasn't to concerned about the file types, pretty sure that wouldn't be an issue. I know its sorta counter intuitive in most cases to burn these files to a data DVD to be played on a ps3, but with a 50 GB blu-ray disc I could fit all of my SD movies on one disc. that would be very convenient :-D

i kinda figured someone out there has tried this, but the more I think about it, the chances of that person actually reading this might be low. I will try burning some videos to a data dvd and check it out.

Yes, it can. I've done this with BD25. Just make sure your mp4s have the right codec supported by the PS3.

Holy crap, I think I just accidentally bumped a six year-old thread.
