90% of the videos on this website already work on the PS3, we have tested this over and over again. We have a divx movie section, divx streams at higher quality and frames per second than flash (megavideo,videoweed,novamov,zshare). Below is a tutorial on how to register your PS3 to watch our divx content or any divx content on the net.

Q: What do I need to do to watch DivX videos on my PS3?

A: Nothing! Since it is DivX Certified, the Playstation 3 is guaranteed to play back any file that has been converted with DivX Converter or Dr. DivX on the 'home theatre' profile. All DivX Certified devices are capable out-of-the-box to play (non-VOD) DivX videos burned to CD or DVD. (Please Note: playback via USB or wireless streaming from your computer may work, but it is not guaranteed as part of the DivX certification.)

If you have DivX files on your computer, for example, you can simply burn them to a blank disk using DivX Player and play them on your device. Other divx files may play back, but DivX can only guarantee that files that adhere to the 'home theatre' profile will play back.
