    i have a movie that was on bluray 720p and it was a MKV file so i converted it to AVI so that i could stream to my ps3 from my mac using medialink and when i tried to play the file it wouldn't work from my ps3 but worked from my imac. It had a error code

    Remember to convert the original file to the ps3 format, not the AVI file. Every conversion means quality loss.

    EDIT: Try mp4 files instead?

    It wouldn't be blu-ray quality but you could get close although I'm not sure what the PS3 is capable of streaming. It can be a little picky on what types of mp4's it takes. As far as I know the ps3 can't take 5.1 audio encoded mp4 (at least it couldn't the last time I checked).

    The handbrake crew doesn't support presets for gaming systems anymore so you'll have to play around with the settings a little to see what works.
