Convert MKV to Playstation 3 format - With Surround Sound
on Jan 9, 2008 at 7:34:29 pm

Hi
I have several movies in the MKV format with Surround Sound and are trying to convert them to a format that can play on Playstation 3. I have tried several different attempts to convert it to h.264. My latest attempt was in Compressor 3 where I found a h.264 setting with PCM Surround Sound, yippie! :D I thought atleast. But sadly it didnt work. The movie plays good on my Mac but not on the ps3. The file ending is .mov and doesnt even show up on the ps3.

So I wonder if anyone here knows how to convert MKV to a ps3 compatible format with surround sound? I would like to convert the video on my Mac but if you got a PC option it will still do.
Thank you very much in advance

It's not an easy process and I'm not sure it's even possible to do on the Mac OS.

There are many, many threads on the subject over at Doom9, a search there will bring up a ton of results.

I do have tried that, but I couldnt get surround sound. But I guess I will have to try once again.

I am using Daniusoft Media Converter Pro, it can directly convert MKV files to PS3 with lossless video quality

I used PS3 for a year and was still looking for a solution to play MKV on PS3. Until I found this from avforums:

MKV is famous as an open standard free container format which can hold an unlimited number of video, audio, picture, or subtitle tracks in one file. It is intended to serve as a universal format for storing common multimedia content, like movies or TV shows. Although MKV is one of the most popular formats, it is still impossible to play MKV on PS3.

To successfully play MKV on PS3, a widely used solution without limit is to convert MKV to PS3 compatible formats, no matter you are Windows user or Mac user, at: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/play-mkv-on-ps3.html

Hope it's useful to you too.
