Summary: Can PS3 play MKV videos? Here is a step by step guide on how to play various MKV files on PS3 (PlayStation 3) with ease.
"I was never a huge fan of the MKV format since it was not as popular as a AVI or a MPEG file formats. However the MKV file has a huge advantage over all other formats that I really like. But now, the problem is that my PS3 can not support MKV videos directly. Do you have any suggestion?"
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 file playing on PS3, these are two options for you:
One: Stream the MKV from your computer using DivX Media Server. It has been added the ability to stream .mkv files to the PS3 from the "Stream" function in DivX Plus Player on your computer.
If the above option is much complex to you, then the second option is right here for you.
Two: Convert the file to a format supported natively by the PS3, e.g. DivX HD 720p/1080p or MP4.
