PMS streams PS3 compatible files and transcodes/remuxes non-compatible files all on the fly. The only reason you would need to preconvert your files is if your computer and/or network can't keep up with the transcode/remux.EzZn0 wrote:Hello mates!

You can losslessly transcode within PMS but it's at a price as far as CPU load and bandwidth.EzZn0 wrote:I can't find any good transcoding program to ubuntu 9.04 without loosing quality.
The PS3 won't accept MKVs, so during the copy process PMS actually sends the transcoded version that's PS3 compatible. Note that the file size can be much larger depending on your quality settings.EzZn0 wrote:I want to copy the files to my ps3 so if I have understand it right I can't have it in .mkv format.
Not sure how to embed the subs, but the PS3 doesn't accept softsubs for streamed media and I believe only AVI/Divx .srt's for media on the drive. PMS handles subs by hardcoding the subs into the video via transcoding, and this works for external subs and embedded subs.EzZn0 wrote:And how do I put the subs in the movie so it plays in the ps3? I want the subs and the movie in 1 file.
