Default How to play MKV files on PS3 with subtitles

sponsored links

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 anywhere.

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. Youd 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 Ive recommended because its faster and stable.

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