Default Ps3 video conversion

Im looking for a program to convert videos i have into a format the ps3 will play, some of mine either dont play at all or will have video but no audio. Id like to keep the original resolutions of the video files and have as little video degradation as possible. If there are any programs that can do a batch convert as well that would be great

I have not tried to play videos on the PS3 but Mediacoder works well for me. Converts to pretty much any format. It might actually have too many options.

Here is a video converter specifically for PS3 that will create the MP4s you need:
PS3 Video 9 - PlayStation 3 Video Converter

Found a few solutions in this thread:

Do you know if it will work for .mkv files?

A quick look found this thread:
AfterDawn.com: Guides: How to play MKV content on PlayStation 3 (PS3) (M2TS)

Lots of threads on how to get it to work it seems. I just never had a reason to try it. Looks like some sort of conversion or file manipulation is in order.
