Do Gamers Want Native .MKV Video Support On Their Consoles?
 

 

[video - click to view]

Ive been curious... Feels like the demand for this has dropped, while the usage of the video format has gone up sharply. Everything you DL is .MKV now. EVERYTHING HD will 90% of the time be in .MKV. In my opinion it is the 2nd most used file format on p2p.

4+ years have passed and still no support for .MKV

Check out my commentary on this.

just a container used generally for high def movies and tv show rips. Basically every 720p or 1080p rip you download will be in that file format. Open source.

Every way I have seen requires a computer to transcode. Most just use PS3 media server.

nah, it doesn't support it natively, you'd have to stream or convert.

the only way ps3 will run mkv is if you download the free "Playstation Media Server" which allows your playstation to connect to your computer wirelessly andstream .mkv files

No they're not.

But yes, I need this in my life. I get tired of having to stream mkv files through my blu-ray player.

360 cant read video files over 4gb, doesnt matter the format. Thats some other gay shiit...

Its as if MS does not expect users to watch high def content.

PS3 plays them but not directly only through streams... I think PS3 should patch that in but I don't think XBox can show it at all... Honestly with what we pay for these systems and what laptops cost, they should do more with file extentions IMO...

there is really not much difference between mp4 and mkv... Its just a different container. It really isnt that hard to patch in.

There are probably other reasons why. I think part of the reason why is because niccas are not demanding it like they should. And MS probably knows that people will DL bluray rips and stream it directly for that 1080p goodness. Its really non of there biz though. MKV is a popular format now, and they need to keep up.
