PS3 Media Server and .m4v video files?

Hi there

I've got some video files with extension .m4v that arent supported by my ps3 when accessing them via ps3 media server. In the notes for info for the video files it says renaming them to .mp4 from .m4v will work on the ps3, but when I do this I end up with a filename with extension .mp4.m4v and they are still not recognisable by ps3.

Also, the video files come with 2 different audio tracks a dolby 5.1 and a dolby pro-logic; how do i select the dolby 5.1 from within the ps3?

Any ideas?

Thanks

Thanks I've unhidden the file extension and renamed to .mp4 I'll see if that works. Do you happen to know how to select audio tracks on ps3?

Thanks

The PS3 supports M4V files natively and AC3 5.1 audio in M4V, if you use Serviio instead of PMS you wont have to do anything they just work. Just be sure to apply the PS3 profile to the PS3 IP address in the control panel this tells it when to convert and when not too.
