  • Question

  • Summary: The article guides you how convert MKV files to Sony
    PlayStation 3 so that you add and play MKV with your PS3 anytime and

    I already know a lot of people out there already know this but then
    again there are a lot of people who do not. And in this page, my purpose
    is to tell you how to get MKV playable on Sony PlayStation 3.

    If you are trying to play a MKV on PS3 directly from a USB or
    the hard drive, the issue is due to the fact that the PS3 does not
    support the MKV format. The PS3 is certified for playback of the .divx
    format and also supports H.264 in a MP4 container, but it cannot decode
    MKV itself.

    To get the MKV file playing on your PS3, there are two options:

    1. Convert MKV to PS3 compatible format

    Convert the MKV file to a format supported natively by the PS3, e.g. DivX HD 720p/1080p or MP4. You can achieve the goal using Brorsoft Video Converter.

    With the best MKV to PS3 Converter, you can convert MKV to PS3
    without losing quality at super fast speed. Besides encoding MKV, it can
    also convert any other video format you want, like MPG, XviD, FLV, WMV,
    VOB, TiVo, etc. This video converter supports batch conversion, so you
    can convert multiple files at a time, which will save you a lot of time.
    Besides, you can merge several MKV videos into one file or separate one
    big MKV file into several clips as you like. To create personalized MKV
    movies, you can also adjust the visual effects, add unique watermarks
    and more. All these will be done by the built-in video editor. If you
    are looking for ways to convert MKV for PS3 on Mac, Brorsoft Video
    Converter for Mac is highly recommended.

    And below I will share the step-by-step tutorial on how to convert MKV videos to PS3.

    Step 1: After the installation of MKV to PS3 Converter, run the program to load your .mkv files.

    Step 2: Click on the Format box to select proper format from PSP/PS3
    profile.There are multiple choices there like PS3 Video(480p)
    MPEG-4(*.mp4), PS3 Video(7200p) MPEG-4(*.mp4) and more. You’d better
    choose a proper one as you need.

    Step 3: Tap the Convert button to start the conversion. When the
    conversion ends, you will be able to transfer MKV to PS3 for smooth
    playback at ease. Note: You need to put the converted videos into a
    Video folder. Only in this way can PS3 read the videos you transferred.

    2. Stream MKV to PS3 via Media Server

    Stream the MKV from your computer using a Media Server. Make sure
    your computer and PS3 are on the same network. Well, the streaming speed
    depends on your bandwidth. Personally I prefer the first solution I’ve
    recommended because it’s faster and stable.

    I hope this helps clarify the issue and give you a few options.
