Free MPEG4 2 SONY PS3 Convert is an extremely simple-to-use tool to help you transform your MP4 video files into a format that your Sony PlayStation 3 can play – namely, DivX4 and DivX5 AVI files. The lack of configuration settings and the short list of output codecs supported make it the ideal tool for all PS3 users.
Designed with the highest level of simplicity in mind, this free tool is suitable for all types of users, from the novice to the experienced ones. All you are asked to do is to select the source MPEG-4 file (those with an MP4 extension) and to give a name and a location to the resulting AVI file. Once you click on the “Start” button, the program will take care of the entire re-encoding process in a fast and efficient way. As far as output codecs go, you can only choose between DivX4 and DivX5. Both will create AVI files at 29.97 frames per second, but the former will produce videos with a bit rate of 1000 kbps and a fixed size of 800x600, while the latter’s bit rate will reach 1500 kbps and it will keep the size of the original video untouched.
Its limited functionality and minimalist user interface may put some potential users off. However, remember that this is a free tool, and as long as the conversion process produces the expected results there is no reason to complain.
