comment Ubuntu doesn't copy video files to Sandisk USB Flash drive
Victory! Thanks for the help. I usually never touch the suffixes at all, and I think I will return to that. Just in case I need to transfer anything again and forget your solution.

comment Ubuntu doesn't copy video files to Sandisk USB Flash drive
Oh, and I just looked at the files I put onto the flash drive from the PS3. Despite being named without the suffix on the machine itself, the files now have the proper suffix automatically. And I already knew about avi, encoders, etc. I know if it is not compatible, it will tell me, and I have used Handbrake and Mencoder before/ I didn't know you could transcode with VLC though.

Okay, I'll rename the files with the proper suffix, all of which are .avi. It actually makes sense too. I usually remove the suffixes after they make it to the PS3, but this time, I downloaded a ton of videos at a place away from home, so, to kill time, I just renamed the files without the suffixes. Should I rename the files that are already on the flash drive, or should I rename them on the computer and transfer them again?

comment Video's won't go into full screen
Tried the fix in the link you posted. It was ineffective, although, I have not restarted. I'm going to do so and see if it works after that, just in case, along with seeing if I have any needed updates.

comment Video's won't go into full screen
Now that I've read the link you posted closer, they are similar. I am using Chrome. I tried it in Firefox and it does make it into full screen upon command, but the video lags, although sound is unaffected. Flash version: "flashplugin-installer 11.2.202.236ubuntu0.12.04.1" from the software center. I use Gnome.

Already looked at that. It doesn't describe my problem. The videos never even make it into full screen, and I have no problem with general playback while I'm in it i.e. no freezes.
