Sony just keep doing it over and over again, one small problem after another, most recently the 3.41 HDD problem, it appears that another problem has arisen, a user by the name of AdorableNirvash on PS3Trophies has reported having playback problems whilst trying to watch a movie, on his PS3.
He also show’s a video from a Youtube user called alexsaeed8, who has the same problems, here is what alexsaeed8 said:
Recently Ps3 have come out with this new update that automatically downloads and installs this program called “Cinavia” which protects against piracy movies by analyzing the sound of the movie that is playing and compares that to the original version to see if it matches and based on that it will allow or doesn’t allow the ps3 or BRDvd players to play the movie you will get 2 most common messages
1: it will say it can’t play the movie because of a copy right violation.
2: it will say the audio for this movie has been mute and it wont play any more sound just the picture it all depends.
so based on this information i have made a short video of how i been watching movies on my ps3 and by passing the cinavia technology. The only way i been able to watch movies is to speed it up by x1.5 or higher cinavia can’t pick up the sound at that speed and its not so bad once you get use to it at least for now until someone come out with another solution.
And his video:
AdorableNirvash has said that, it seems to be based on audio, but any attempts he has made to try and alter the audio, have given him the same response.
So if this isn’t an isolated incident, then all of us who back up our movies, to play them on our PS3, will be affected, have any of you had this problem.
