    Playing a video from Win7 -> PS3... DRM?

    I downloaded a video from BlinkBox to my PC. It demanded I go online to prove I was me but then played fine. I wondered about playing it on the PS3 through Win7 -> PS3 DLNA, and after some hassle got my PC visible on the PS3. I can play other video files but this one, it says "unsupported".

    I don't know enough about DLNA... does this suggest the DRM is kicking in or that the actual codec is no good? How do these things work - is my PC playing the video TO the PS3, or is the PS3 simply trying to play the file from a network location (my PC)?


    Thanks for any advice... my gut feeling is it's not allowed but maybe there is a solution.

    Let me google that for you

    you need to use a codec the ps3 can cope with which means transcoding (change from Blinkbox proprietary DRM enabled codec to one the ps3 supports).

    Obviously you agreed not to do this in the T&Cs with Blinkbox this is provided for info only.

      I spent about 30min Googling stuff... but I didn't know what to search for since as I said, I don't know how it works or which part isn't working. 'Transcoding' isn't a topic I'm familiar with.

      Still not clear if the issue is the PS3 doesn't recognise the format, or is being blocked by DRM. It says just "unsupported video" which doesn't make this clear.

        I'm having the same problem and can't find a fix.

        The drm videos are part of a training site I belong to and can watch them fine on my computer, but would prefer to watch them on my tv through my ps3.

        i can't get it to work. has a solution been find over the past year?
