    I used PS3 video 9 and got an "unsupported format" message from my Japanese PS3. Do I have to rename the file .mp4 or something?

    Worked for me, however one thing:

    I had to manually change the default PS3 profile setting from MPEG-4 SP to MPEG-4 AVC. You can also accomplish this by clicking the Convert Video button and changing it from SP to AVC before clicking Start.

    The files encoded in SP did not work, however the AVC encoded files did.

    Thanks for the help because a friend told me about avc and that it would work and also make you movie's a little more clear.

    Easier method (upload the video, adjust settings & then d/l the file)

    PS3 has no game region lock so you can buy a game anywhere in the world & play it on your country's PS3. Some PSN online games may not work if they require you to connect directly to the Online game from your home country. Connecting to a server for that country would most likely allow them to work.

    Blu-ray DVD does have 3 region locks, so if you are not in that region you won't be able to watch the Blu-ray on your PS3. Regions

    As long as you use SW to convert the files, they should be viewable on any PS3 anywhere in the world.
