    Is it not easier (and faster) just using tsMuxer and remuxing the mkvs to m2ts or creating avchds?

    Only MKV? That limits its uses a lot. Most people don't even have MKV videos.

    meh...mkv2vob already does this in a couple o clicks, and is really fast... I'm sure the people who need this already have their solution.

    still, all about choice I suppose.

    Nice move... although mkv2vob is 8 minutes faster for converting the same file.

    Might need some fine tuning.

    I think, what would really useful for the PS3 was native MKV Support.

    mkv is the videocontainer of the future.

    Most HD Warez are stored in MKV Containers.

    Am I missing something here, I copied an 8gb mkv file onto my ps3 and it played it, so what would I gain from doing this?

    Normally I run ps3meadiaserver on my pc and then access that via the PS3, this way I get HD and it also keeps DTS (if available) in the stream so I get 5.1 surround sound through the optical port as well - but on top of that I get loads of storage for my films 1tb at the moment but in reality its endless.

    Don't ps3's have a Fat/Fat32 Hdd with around a 4gb file size limit, so what your saying is not possible?

    Yes you are right, I had this conversation with someone else, I actually took pictures of it to show it on there, I copied the file over, shutdown the pc and then made sure that the MKV file is in the "video" container on the PS3, clicked on it and watched the whole of district9 1080 without any gaps and in hd.
