    I don't even bother converting them i simply stream them direct from PC using PS3 media server.

    Have to give it a try to see which I prefer.

    You should see how fast it is on my brothers quad-core with SSD HDD xD It takes like 60seconds max.

    It seems that program can't stream subtitles which is very unfortunate. But thanks for the link, that program is damn awesome!

    It does stream subs I have had them in movies which annoyed me so used the "definantly dissable subs" option.
    Its nt always stright forward so may have to fiddle with various subtitle settings oh and I use the latest Beta not the version linked onthe front page.
    You can get the latest beta from here.

    It still doesn't seem to deal with soft subs, which is generally the kind that anime use. The FAQ says that this is still unsupported.

    I've been doing this for a year now, works great.

    i just wish the ps3 had .mkv native support without needing to convert.
    Gaming on all platforms right now.

    I've never had 1 issue playing subs with it and been using it for over a year close to 2 now I think actually,

    I can confirm it works for both embedded subs and the ones that are in the same folder .srt I think is there extension.

    Also works with files with different audio codecs embedded in them .

    Steps
    - Go to your ps3media server icon on your ps3
    - Navigate to the file you want
    - Above the default file will be a folder called Trans coded
    - Go in there and there will be differ options subs/no subs/ English / Japanese

    I found this out when I DL the Finalfantasy movie in HD and it was Japanese by default, the file was dubbed in English though.
    I was angry and then very happy once I found this out lol

    This is a must have program for anyone that has movie files on there computers.

    Yeah I used this program a while ago, but I gave up because when I tried converting a 4GB movie it turned out in a 8gb file. This problem was solved however in later updates. I got one question...does the program sacrifice video quality when converting from mkv?

    I have not done this in about a year but this is how I did it. This was done on a pentium dual core (slow) and it took about 15 minutes if I recall. However I never did subtitles or the transcode dts because my receiver supported dts.
