Which converter program do yall use? I could stream it via real-time transcoding but it's a pain in the a.ss rewinding and fast-forwarding when doing that method. Rather just take the time to convert the files to MP4. I trued one program called Super video converter but it never worked for me for some reason. Let me know.

Yes it can. I stream WMV-HD movies that are 9GB+ just fine. Videos over 4GB is a limitation of FAT32 hard drives, not the Xbox 360.

I use Windows Media Encoder to convert HD movies.

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.
You do realize that Sony doesn't support MKV natively either, right? :kobewhatever:

Not that any one wants to stream anything on the PS3 since you can't even fast forward or rewind, technology present in VCRs.

my initial argument didn't fail. the 360 isn't capable of displaying its third-party, video-oriented applications in hd. It's sad, and hopefully a bug in the metro dash, but it does bring forth an agenda, one that makes you believe MS is simply trying to sell their own media through their own, first-party applications.

it's not easy at all for a lot of files, especially ones that are 1080p or over 8gb. The best things i've gotten to stream were WMV HD though on xbox 360 which are over 4 and 8gb respectively. PS Media Server lags me a lot with HD MKVs or just stop playback. I'd rather just run them off the hard drive but that 4GB limit a file is annoying.

360 still has a long way to go though. I never really use it as a media center because PS3's biggest advantage with streaming and HDD playback is the continuous playback. I hate using netflix or 360 to always press play on a movie or tv show when I have a folder full of them I want to play.

On a side note, is there an app for PS3 that allows shuffling a folder?
