I didn't much like TVersity either. I'm now using the imaginatively titled PS3 Media Server which has been written specifically for the PS3. And I love it.
The website is here: http://www.ps3mediaserver.org
To save you a few seconds searching, the link to the download site is: http://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/downloads/
Available for Windoze, Mac and Linux. Which is nice.
just use mkvtovob . it takes less than 5 minutes to remux a 10gig file (newish comp) and once it done its done .
mkv doesnt offer better picture or quailty . its just well known to be one of the best containers going at the amount due to what it can support interms of audio and video codec . it is h/x.264 that gives much better quialty over divx ,even when its in SD form
most people are downloading music and videos through crappy bit torrent and p2p software , and so most people are not aware of the schene , how it works and how far that video has come down a large chain before it ends up on p2p bit torrent. there are rules for certain realease groups . divx and xvid rules havent changed and such releases must still be contained in avi format and not mkv as still alot of standalone stuff can play avis but not mkvs . the hd stuff is not closed off and so mkv is used instead . becuase sony are one of the largest backers in blu-ray they releasise that at the moment 90% of all blu ray rips are stuck in the mkv containter . blu-ray is there format and there money maker and so they are trying to make it harder for you to bother downloading illegal films and hoping that you wont bother , or dont know how and you will buy the disc . i cant see it coming at all really
most people requesting MKV only want it support for playstation because cause they got excited by a torrrent site that lets them download "bluray" mkvs and now they wanna be "cool" and watch em on their playstation and tell their friends...
Not all of us, P2P for a start is n00b stuff and MKV is a very versatile container, There is an increasing amount of anime being released as .mkv files due to the containers ability to hold multiple subtitle and soundtrack files. All in all a very capable container which is increasing in popularity all the time over the dated and not so good divx and xvid formats
