numbers prefix on mp4 download links

Post#1 » Tue May 07, 2013 8:39 am

Hi All,

I've recently noticed that recently there is consistently a number prefix on a lot of the standard download links (mp4's), but not all of them. 1367888347_how.i.met.your.mother.823.hdtv-lol.mp4, for example. Those with number prefixes quite often will not play on the ps3. And links with prefixes are becoming more and more prevalent. Any reason why I'm having trouble on the PS3? Is this just a particular uploader who has encoded the links a certain way, and I just need to be grateful they even exist and be content to play them on my PC?

Thanks, and very appreciative of the site and all the hard work that goes into maintaining it!

Not sure on the PS3, but I would think that it is a encode issue and not the file name.
The file's are named by the release groups and the people that post them here are just searching for them and when found post them here. They have no control over the names or encodes.

From what I understand MP4 files can be hit or miss with the PS3. Have you tried conversion software?
