Hi kazuya,

Good job. It works through ps3 doesn't support mkv natively.

thankx again for your reply
The PS3 does not support MKV & the PS3 cannot play the output from MakeMKV.

The "guide" you link to is for x264/MKV videos which installs a MKV splitter compatible with WMP12, all this does is make WMP12 see the video. As the x264/AC3 codecs are supported in WMP12 it accepts the video into it's library but it does transcode the video in the background (most don't know WMP12 transcodes video), the output from MakeMKV is not x264/MKV so the videos will never work properly unless you use a transcoding DLNA server. Serviio works a lot better than PS3 Media Server or WMP12.

try mkv2vob by 3ric
That will rip the audio and video out of the MKV and it creates a new file that the PS3 can regonise, usually an MP4.

It's free, normally it takes about 5-10 minutes, sometimes it will transcode the audio and take a little longer.
Until I got my WDTV that's what I used to do to MKV's to get them to play on my PS3.
