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 use mkv2vob and is fast enough!! i try also divx to see!!! thanks
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?
