Hello guys ! First, if this question was already asked before, I'm sorry. I bought a PS3 2 days ago and I'd like to know if it is possible to watch some anime on my ps3 ? If yes, do I need to purchase some specific format (like .avi .mkv) or any of it is ok ?
Right since i used to frequently play anime for my PS3 il try answer this.
.mkv it cant play its a 'unsupported file type' so its a no no, you could try as Asakara said and convert to .vob, thats something i havnt tried so i cant say about its usefullness.
Regarding /avi and mp4 its hit or miss really mostly its a hit and will play them no trouble but there are some it wont play due to them being 'unsupported file type' or just generaly not appearing to even be selected. But as a rule you should be okay with .avi, but generaly if you want to watch anime you should stick with your pc/laptop.
For some reason mp4 never works for me on my PS3, even though it should be a supported file. Only avi's have worked thus far. Interesting to know about this .vob file... I'll have to look more into it.
I use a cable from my pc too my TV. Think that is one of the best ways too go. Unless you have a TV that supports USB input, then you can also use a memory stick or external HD too watch anime, but then you have a change of codec problems.

I was thinking of burning the animes on a CD-RW. Like that I can take the benefit of the rewrite propriety. I'll try tomorrow with a .avi file and a .mkv file converted to .vob

Unfortunately, I have no cable and no USB input on my TV =/ That's why I want to use a CD-RW
