Just use a file converter, you can change them from .MKV to almost whatever you want.

Pirates are hipsters, don't support that mkv crap. MP4 does it all, better.

Actually you have that backwards: MKV does everything MP4 does, but better, since it support all of the features of MP4 but with additional options which MP4 does not have.

You might as well say AVI does it all better, too.

mkv is just a container that can hold millions of different combinations of codecs.

This, dammit. It's kinda hard to support MKV when MKV is EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE.

MP4, officially, is only 1 type of audio and 1 type of video (though it can contain others), so it's much easier to support.

That said, MKV is a completely superior container.

While talking about streaming, I prefer using PS3 Media Server over WMC.

Just use a media server to stream from your PC

I'm not sure what xb uses but for PS3 you can use Playstation Media Server which supports almost as many formats as VLC player

No. 99% of the files in mkv format are pirated stuff


How so? I watch anime in avi, xvid, mkv, ogg, flac and h264 are they all pirated formats as well?


He's talking about strictly .mkv file formats, not the other ones. His statement is conditional to .mkv only. I hope you could recognize that...
