MKV(and others) in development?
MKV(and others) in development? –
Well I am the type of person who bought a PS3 for almost movies and off course, formats like MKV (and other) doesn't work in any PS3.
I was hoping that a dev could do an homebrew that could transform PS3 in a REAL and COMPLETE media Center, just like the SMS(PS2 Homebrew) but for PS3 with the newer formats...
Is this possible or we will never have such program? And is it possible for the PS3 recognize NTFS because that is necessary for the 4gb+ files such as the MKV...
Hey, I'm going to ask a question that has been asked at least 3 times a day since the end of August. PS3's can play .mkv files if you use mkv2vob or ps3 media server on your PC to transcode and stream it to the PS3 (there are numerous other programs too that do the same thing). As for natively accepting it, if you want to decrypt a firmware update, extract the kernel, write a graphic driver and libraries, recompile the kernel, and then encrypt it all again so you can install it, be my guest. Currently no one knows what the scene will have in the future. Do we look like f'n mind readers to you? If you want something so bad, I suggest you pickup a programming book and get started.
If you use ps3mediaserver you don't even have to transcode, it will just remux it on the fly.
Download ps3mediaserver and set it to use tsMuxer.
comeon stop being so arrogant

i use wifi,all my 1080p movies working using it but when i use mkv it uses more bandwidth and so it hangs.you need an ethernet and all of these problems arise
there will eventually be one but it will take some time
I'll have to try this when I get home. When I select tsMuxer from the PS3 XMB, the video stutters and stops too often. Hopefully there is a setting in the ps3mediaserver application itself to select tsMuxer.
My point being is if he searched he would have seen this question asked 1000 times before him and would have been able to read the nicer answers in those threads. I'm quite sick of the influx of newbs here that constantly just spam about, "I want GT5, I want a media server, I want to play on PSN." They don't f'n read. They just want and they come in hijacking threads and posting new threads about stuff that has been asked plenty of times before. I spend a lot of my free time on here answering questions for newbies, and I speak for more then just myself here, I'm getting quite sick of these people that can't be bothered to use some common sense or search for an answer before asking. I don't know about you, but I didn't open up my account here and start asking questions. In fact, I lurked for almost 3 years before I posted my first post. And my first post was to help someone else. If you don't code, and don't want to be helpful with anyone else, I just don't think you should be able to request anything from anyone here (programming wise that is). This is the reason a lot of us that were here when the scene was new, aren't here anymore. Moh.sahkii, DJLO, Hermes, and a few others all quit for this exact reason. And, I can say, I'm not much further behind them. I know this rant will go on deaf ears, but I have to post it somewhere today, because I'm reaching my boiling point reading some of these other threads.
Just don't reply then Chesh.

If you use tsMuxer, it is just going to send the video as is (the PS3 has no problem whatsoever playing x264) and it is just going to remux the audio if necessary into a container the PS3 can handle.
If neither of these options work for you, you can losslessly remux the .mkv into an mp4 (keep the video as x264 and use aac audio) and it will playback just fine. It's pretty trivial to write a script to do this using ffmpeg.
I'm not sure about older versions of PS3MS, but the current one I'm using has that specific setting under the transcoder settings tab. By default it has switch to tsMuxer when H264 video is ps3 compatible and there's no configured subs [TS/M2T/MOV/MP4/AVI/MKV].
