Watch your Videos on the Sim TV cheat for The Sims 3

Watch your Videos on the Sim TV

This can be done by putting the video you want to watch into the '/My Documents/EA Games/The Sims 3/Movies/Broadcast/(television station)' folder and switching on the television in the game. The video must be in .AVI format with a maximum resolution of 128x128 pixels and a frame rate no more than 15 frames per second.

Don't you just love pedantic people who like to show off what they know when they really don't know anything and everything they think they know is wrong?

The sims 3 use a .video format in which are in the FullBuild packages, Do a web search "make your own videos in Sims 3", there are a bunch of Modders working on the Tv/video issue that Sims creators didn't implement in Sims 3 like they had in Sims 2

This technique only works in sims 2. As of now 2013 there is no known way to put your videos into Sims 3 TVs.

There is no Movies folder anywhere. Bad information. False advertising. Who has actually done this?

go to the original game, right click and go to properties then click on find target and it will give you those folders to put your other stuff in
