Sony Releases "Filmy," A New PSN Application For HD Vids
Movie lovers and all you who videophiles out there should enjoy this.
A new movie viewing application from Sony has arrived exclusively on the PlayStation Network; it's called Filmy, and it "allows easy organization and viewing of AVCHD video recorded with Sony cameras on PlayStation 3." All you have to do is connect an AVCHD-recordable camera to your PS3 with a USB cable, and you can see those AVCHD vids on your TV. You'll find Filmy in the media category on the PSN; it's a free trial version that lets you fiddle around with all the features for 15 minutes. If that bit of experimentation convinces you, then feel free to nab the paid version, which unlocks all content functionality for only $4.99. We're certain many will find a use for this new application and as time goes on, it becomes clearer and clearer that Sony intends to expand upon the PS3's significant multimedia capabilities.
And while the games always come first, it's nice to have the bells and whistles every once in a while.
