PS3 file transfer question

I have saved some mkv files onto my usb memory stick so that I can transfer them to my ps3 slim. When I connect the usb stick, the mkv dont show but the other files like avi or mp3 files do show.

When I connect ps3 media server the mkv files do show but for some reason they dont show when I save them onto the usb memory stick.

Does anyone know why this is the case and how I can rectify so I can transfer mkv files direct from the usb stick?

probably cos the mkvs are bigger than 4 gb?

also you will need to use mkv2vob software if you want them to work if they are smaller than 4gb

The PS3 cannot play .mkv. When you use the media server, it transcodes it for you into a format the PS3 can play.

Streaming hd over to the ps3 from a computer Does not send the same quality as playing from a usb stick or disc,

As Razord says thats the only way you can do it

as i said if you use mkv2vob it works

much easier to just encode them first using mkv2vob (takes about 2 minutes for a 4gb mkv)

then put the resulting mp4 file on a usb. Saves transcoding on the fly hogging your cpu and having to leave your pc on

Got the mkv2vob

Trying to convert a film 9.98gb length 1.27.28 From mkv - work on ps3

Did it using it but made the file 4gb length 41.47

did I do something wrong?

yes

config -> output format = mpg and file splitting = FAT32(4gb)

you must have 2 files somewhere

Will try that,

I have 1 MKV file 9.98GB

when i convert im using my 500GB External HDD as the Destination

So once i convert it will have the entire file? 3

If i use Blu Ray25GB will it work ? No

I assume you have formatted your 500GB HDD using FAT32

Answered my own question because it did not works and saves someone else asking if it does lol

I used the 4gb method you said but it broke the file into 3 files :? one 41.48,40.30,under 10mins all the movie is there but how do i get to stay in one file :thinking:

thats what it is meant to do. FAT32 file limit is 4GB. Ps3 wont play files bigger than 4gb

is your tv 1080p? If not, then just DL the 720p matroska files
