    2. How To Get The Best Possible Quality For Your Movies




    In this section we will discuss how to properly convert your videos for playback in high quality (DvD quality). The first thing you need to do is open up PS3VIDEO9 and go to the convert tab. Underneath you should see a tab that says encoding profiles, go ahead and click on this one. You should now see a list of settings. Look for the dropdown box selection for encoding profiles and select the default AVC encoding profile. We are going to edit these settings to match my settings as pictured below.

    Make sure your settings look EXACTLY like this and save the profile after making these changes (click on the save profile button at the bottom right of this page. Now click on the settings tab at the top and then the converter tab underneath. You should see a dropdown box called profile under the one-click settings box. Change this to the profile you just edited and save your changes by clicking on the save converter settings button on the bottom right hand of the page.Now that you have done this you may use the one-click convert button to convert all of your videos in high quality.



    Here are some very important things to note about encoding your videos with PS3VIDEO9. First and foremost, make sure that you encode your video in EXACTLY the same framerate as your source video. If you do not match the framerate perfectly the audio in the video will become out of sync with the video. This will ruin your video and cause you to have to do the encoding all over again. Here is a listing of some standard framerates:

    PAL
    Frame Rate: 25 FPS





    NTSC

    Frame Rate: 23.976 FPS
    Frame Rate: 29.97 FPS





    Web Feeds

    Frame Rate: 15 FPS





    Another VERY important thing to note is the naming limitations set by the PS3. When naming a video file for playback on your PS3, be sure NOT to use any spaces, symbols, or make the name excessively long. Even if the video is in the proper format the PS3 may still say "Unsupported Media". Try to keep the names short and sweet. Once you have transferred the video to the PS3 you can use the rename function by hitting the triangle button on your controller to access the menu to adjust the name as you see fit.

    If you find that DvD quality is not to your liking, and would prefer a HD conversion, simply adjust the resolution up to the video size you need and change the quantizer setting to a lower number such as 15.
