H.264 Encoding on Sony PS3

CodecSys CE-10

I thought this was so out of left field, but if you've already got a PS3, what the heck!? Runs over Ethernet. Shame it's Windows only. Gotta love the disclaimer: "* You may not play game simultaneously with encoding."

That looks really stinking cool. I wish it could do the same for my Final Cut renders.

Thanks for the heads up, too bad the pro version is 2G, the personel version is only $200.00 but only goes up to 15Mbps, I might just try it and see how is the quality at 15Mb since I already have a PS3, the near realtime is cool.

If you give it a shot let everyone know how it goes. I'd like to hear more about it.

I wonder how cheap of a PC would run this.

I thought it was an insanely great idea. And it is.

And for US$1,999 (plus PS3) ... I think I will stick with the Matrox card that does this. Shame about their pricing structure.

I agree about the pricing if the pro version were priced around 300 then they'd sell a ton of these. then again they'd have to sell 7 times more to make the same amount.

If they can do this for h.264 encodes what's to say someone can't do the same for other processing.

Well I was about to download the trial version but found out that the personel version is for personel use only, commercialy used is prohibited and so that won't do me any good.
