Fix MP4 Unsupported Data Issue On PS3

Written by Lucy John on April 25, 2023

“Hi, I have few important AVI, MOV and MP4 files. One of the MP4's shows up on my PS3 and plays just fine. The other shows an empty thumbnail icon and displays "unsupported data". What's the difference? Does the PS3 only support certain MP4 encodes and not others? I am searching solution but unable to solve it. Any help would be valuable for me. Thanks in advance!”

PlayStation3 is not just a video game console, as it also allows you to play videos of various formats. So having knowledge on which and all video file formats it supports will prevent playback compatibility issues. The following MP4 format is playable on PS3: H.264 / MPEG-4 AVC, AAC LC.

PS3 can only play MP4 files with video codec of H.264/MPEG-4 AVC and audio codec of AAC. If MP4 video is not upto PS3 standard then it cannot be played on PS3. Henceforth, first double-check the MP4 file (that shows unsupported data error) whether it is in PS3 compatible format or not. If the format is correct and compatible with PS3 then try to play that MP4 file on other media players.

If your MP4 file is in compatible format yet not playable either on PS3 or other players then issue might be with MP4 file, which you are trying to play. It might be resulting unsupported data error due to MP4 file corruption. When MP4 file got corrupted due to virus, improper usage, inappropriate transfer etc it may screen various errors like unsupported data, invalid file, file cannot be played etc when you try to play them.

Still you don’t need to be worried. If that MP4 file is important then you can utilize appropriate MOV Video Repair software to fix it, without any second thought.
