I KNOW THE PS3 CANT PLAY .MKV BUT THIS IS A SERIOUSLY QUICK CONVERTER SO IT MAKES SENSE TO QUICKLY CONVERT YOUR .MKV VIDEOS TO ANOTHER FORMAT
The Point of it is to play the files on your ps3 without having to have your pc,modem,router and ps3 on at the same time (what a waste of electric) I use my ps3 to play movies when I am in bed so it would be a bit shit if I had to get up and switch everything off. Also how can a link look sketchy have you tested it obviously not.
Either way this is not what the title says it is,
atm you cannot play mkv directly on the ps3.
this is converting mkv to vob to play on ps3, this is not new and has been used for a long time.
and if you link to the site rather than the exe it dont look so iffy
there are also many other ways to convert mkv to play but none to play directly.
also this thread was 4 weeks old and didnt need reviving... ffs
The major problem with using mkv2vob as with any other program is that for videos you want with subtitles, you have to transcode the video, which takes quite some time. But for standard video files, its snappy and easy to use.
I wonder if the fact that it is possible to run unsigned code(i think i saw an article, not sure though) as well as have a debugged console(soon i think, but its almost there with rebug), if it would be possible for people to develop a better media player with better codec support(with proper hardware usage)
