    PS3 file transfer question

    Banned
    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

    yes

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

    you must have 2 files somewhere

    I assume you have formatted your 500GB HDD using FAT32

    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

    Says patching dts just now halfway through

    once that is done it says transcoding video stops quarter of the way?
