Encoding Videos for a NWZE345 Sony Walkman (codecs already found)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 18, 2010
I have a Sony Walkman NWZ-E345.
Right now I'm trying to figure out what kind of encoding I can use to watch videos on it.
Supports MP3, WMA (DRM), AAC, and Linear PCM audio formats; AVC, MPEG-4, and WMV (DRM) video formats; JPEG image files
The E340 supports multiple high-quality video formats (AVC (H.264/AVC), MPEG-4, and WMV), as well as a variety of audio codecs (MP3, WMA, AAC-LC (.mp4), and L-PCM (.wav), giving you more freedom to download the kind of music and video that you want.
WMV playback limited to Simple Profile, QVGA resolution (320x240) at a bitrate no higher than 768 kpbs. MPEG-4 playback limited to Simple Profile, QVGA resolution (320x240), at a bitrate no higher than 1024 kpbs. AVC playback limited to Baseline Profile, QVGA resolution (320x240), at a bitrate no higher than 768 kpbs.
ok. So to summarize:
Video: wmv, mp4, avc
audio: wma, mp3, aac
From the example file that does work:
Sony VAIO ESeries Hardware Support
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 26, 2010
Hello there, i am trying to get more into Linux by trying distributions which are a bit of a challenge for the normal end-user such as Slackware, Debian and Gentoo but i am having a lot of trouble due to hardware support.
I was wondering are there any good specialised hardware support websites for certain distros?
I find for example Ubuntu is very good with hardware support, all i had to do was update ALSA, and i had a fully running system.
Maybe i should first understand how drivers work in Linux operating systems as opposed to Windows systems.
Anyone know any good learning resources for hardware support on Linux systems?
Thanks in advance.
NO hardware virtualization support for sony vaio
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 16, 2007
A couple weeks ago (beginning Novermber 2007), I bough a Sony Vaio business notebook (BX41VN). My intention was setting up a thin Linux server system, using KVM on top of it for hosting various virtual OS that I need for doing my job.
When configuring the system I discovered that Intel VT could not be enabled in the BIOS. Even after BIOS update, VT was still missing. After contacting the dealer, he asked the question directly to Sony and got the official answer that Sony does definitively not support hardware virtualization on Vaio laptops. The dealer told me that they did not give any further explanation, why.
For many years, I was really a Vaio fan, but now I'm disappointed. So I gave the notbook back and took a Toshiba Tecra S5 instead. This notebook supports VT, although the display is not as brilliant as Sony.
At least Toshiba is not a technology blocker.

LXer: Linux lovers riled up over Sony PS3 lawsuit, Firefox woes
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 20, 2011
Published at LXer:
The Linux blogosphere is "all shook up" these days, skewering Sony for suing a hacker for jailbreaking the PS3, and hammering Mozilla for skimping on hardware acceleration in the Linux Firefox 4 beta. Meanwhile, Google's decision to drop H.264 from its Chrome browser for open source alternatives received praise from the open source world, but also a surprising amount of criticism.
Is there a Linux driver for Sony's official PS3 headset?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2009
Sony's PS3 headset has a feature that lets you use it as a USB mic while it's plugged into its charging dock.
Is there any way to be able to use that feature on Linux? I don't want to use the Bluetooth to connect it, because I'd rather use it as a desktop mic rather than an in-ear headset.
Sony Vaio E11 Windows 8 + Ubuntu 13.04 Install Hosed!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 25, 2013
Hi! I just tried to dual-boot install/correct the Windows 8 installation on a Sony Vaio E11 and accidentally deleted the Windows 8 partition. Now it can't recover the Windows 8, and I have attempted to install Ubuntu twice and it doesn't boot, complaining "No Operating System Found" with either UEFI or Legacy BIOS settings selected. Please how can I fix Ubuntu 13.04 boot properly and have Windows 8 in a tiny partition where it deserves to be ?
