Why has my PlayStation 3 stopped detecting MKV files?

kazuya Mishima April 24, 2012

I have a PS3 Slim. It used to play my MKV files. But now my PS# does not show any files in MKV format. Does anyone know why this has happened?

    You are gonna have to convert them to mp4 then import them to PSP Video Manager and at the end put them into your PSP. For more information please visit:

    Are the files stored on the PS3 or are they streamed from another device on the network?

    Did you update your PS3 firmware ?
    It might have updated itself .

    check the versions .

    are the .mkv files converted by you or in original format ?
    if you converted them , try changing the converter settings .

    Try playing 2 or 3 different files in .mkv and then see .
    and also first make sure the files are themselves fine and not corrupted .

        ok .
        so i think there is nothing wrong with your PS3 .

        culprit has to be the video .mkv file .
        the codecs . programs , rip parameters ( bit rate , audio , etc ) used by the ripper or the uploader for the torrent file are not compatible with the PS3.

        that is why i said , try to play 2 or 3 different types of .mkv files .

        this will tell if the problem concerns only this particular file or all .mkv files in general .

        try and see
