255w ago - With Samsung now having a major advantage, we can only hope that the MKV file format is added to the PS3's accepted format list soon so that converting will be a thing of the past.

At IFA, Samsung [Register or Login to view links] that Blu-ray player models BD-P1600, BD-P3600 and BD-P4600 will support both YouTube and the MKV file format.

Existing players will be able to access those features by upgrading the firmware. The company plans to launch BD recorders in 2010, and is holding a wait-and-see stance towards 3-D.

To quote: "We know our consumers want access to multi-platform content, and the addition of YouTube to our Blu-ray players aims to provide this to them - from the comfort of their living room," added Robert Shaw (General Manager CTV & Home Platforms).

"Adding MKV file support and YouTube to our range of Blu-ray players is the latest step from Samsung Electronics in providing an unparalleled home-cinema experience for our customers."

i use ps3mediaserver to play mkv files. It plays them fine, but built in support would be much better.

This would be perfect. The only problem that comes next is that we need NTFS support... or else my files will be to big
That's the last of the bother really as I use only network media servers (apart of PlayTV) to play any media so it's fine with me

Yeah - I also pray for Sony to add MKV support although the BIG difference between Samsung and Sony is that Samsung doesn't hold any movie rights unlike Sony to worry about
