AppGeeker Video Converte would do that job.

Click to check the source: how to convert .mkv to ps3 .avi format

It works fine for me. (sometimes not, but it does in general)

The reason I was looking for this forum posting was because the majority of mkv and mp4 files I've been getting from icefilms and trying to stream are either don't show up in the media server, or do not play (system error). Many of these play fine on WMP or Divx player, but some do need to be played on VLC; haven't gotten my head around that yet, either. I'm going to try the suggestions above to see if that allows for streaming. Tried converting mp4>avi for Game of Thrones S3E2 via a different converter yesterday, but while the ps3 media server did recognize the avi file, it could not play it.

I can stream 1080p mkv's no probs, saves doing all the hours of that conversion crap stuff!!! (It gets old real fast!!!) ;-)

Converting reduces quality streaming does not!

ps3 support AVI or MP4 the best, so what you need is good mkv to aiv/mp4 video converter. and what is the OS of your PC, there are some freaware supports to convert mkv to mp4/avi format. such as Handbrake for Mac, Freemake for windows. All completely freeware and works well.

I downloaded and installed Brorsoft Video Converter. It's worked just fine. I converted a mkv file to the PSP/PS3 option, scroll down to the bottom where it lists the PS3 option. You'll notice in the format like "PS3 Video(1080p) MPEG-4 (*.mp4),...

It converted the file, and I transferred it using the Content Manager, and it played very well.

I've stated before how much I detest the .mp4 format, the only good ones being made by the YIFI uploaders.
The rest look like I was watching TV through plastic food wrap. Again, if I can't find .mkv files I'd prefer .avi
{like the ones bollo made in 720p, but he is M.I.A.} and on the old machine that couldn't handle .mkv I used;

to make my own 720 & 1080p .avi files, the suffix would always turn out .mkv.AVI to remind you of the source file and that it was converted.

Check the upper left corner container select, it has provision to pump out Sony PS3 compatible files.

MKV is not compatible with PS3. If you want to play MKV videos on PS3, you need to convert MKV to AVI which is well supported by PS3. And how to do the conversion? You can turn to Video Converter software. Or read the article on How to Convert MKV to AVI.

To insert mkv to ps3, it is better to convert mkv to ps3 more supported MPEG-1, WMV, AVI.
Here is just the step by step guide on how to do that at
