Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My son has a ps3. We have tried to watch tv shows on abc etc but when I try to download the software from the network it won't work. I was told I need flashplayer but that didn't work or it says my browser is not compatible? I wanted to watch shows on netflix and it said my system didn't support the ability to watch. HELP?
This isn't possible with the PS3's browser.
The ONLY way you can watch the Netflix movies is by downloading their special software and using Internet Explorer.
As far as ABC and flash goes the PS3 should be able to play "most" flash embedded videos as long as you have the latest firmware update (2.60)
Because the way the PS3 is designed you're not able to modify the browser in any way so you can't add any of the special software these websites use to distribute their content.
Your only "solution" would be to setup a linux partition on the PS3 but unless this is your cup of tea I'd stray way from things like this.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if you have any other questions and please don't forget to rate my solution.
