How to play big MKV files (Over 2Gb)

I have some big MKV files. I can play them no problem on my Windows PC. However I want to play them on my blue-ray dvd (Philips 7300, plays MKV and many others) so I can output to the bigger tv.

The file I want to play is 8.6Gb, too big for a dual layer DVD, and although my player can play direct from USB, it won't recognise an NTFS formatted USB stick. The file can't be put on the stick if it is FAT32 as it is over 2Gb?

Any ideas? Does the file need to be split? If so, what would you recommend?

Split it into two 4 gb files. You will have to compress one or both of the parts so they are less than 4gb.

For the PS3 when I want to watch these - I use MKV2VOB and convert the files to .mpg - it also allows you to split the files to 4gb (FAT32) size at the same time. Not sure if it will work on your bluray.

Yes, thanks for that link it was appreciated. You should chill out mate, I don't sit here 24/7 and I wanted to have a look at the program. As it happens it has done a conversion whilst I had my tea but for the moment there is no sound. I was also looking if I got any other ideas. Thanks anyway - your MBE will be in the post.

They might not have been back yet, chill out. If I was them I wouldn't rep you now anyway after you've been rude. Not everyone lives on here.


Not looking for rep, just a simple 'cheers'.

You need to follow the prompts and encode the DTS. Your sarcasm award is in the mail too.:roll:

Thanks, seems my player won't play mpgs although to be honest I thought it did. Anyway, may have an answer, play straight from my laptop HDMI to the tv.

If it's a blu-ray player you could burn it to a blu-ray disk. Blu-ray writers are still expensive though so if you don't want to pay that much you'll have to either shrink or split up the file.

Thanks, bit expensive at this time.
