    Anyone know of a good free converter to take a .mkv video file to a PS3 compatible file. Sorry for the noob question, but i'm a noob to Mac. I've tried the free "smartconverter" from the MAS but it doesn't work. Please help a new Mac user out!

    Thanks a million


    rMBP using a NAS box attached to PS3.

    That is exactly what I don't want to do. I take my MacBook pro to work with me, so running a server off of it at home is impractical. That is why I have a NAS box and a PS3 so my kids can stream movies off the NAS box to the PS3 while I'm at work. I'm just looking for a simple way to convert mkv files to ps3 compatible files.

    Use Handbrake. It will convert mkv's to PS3 compatible mp4/h.264 video files. I do it all the time. I have to select the storage device, then hit the green triangle and tell it to "show all" for some reason, but then they play just fine.
