XviD4PSP 5, do not get version 6 (it's different and crap). It gets the job done right and gives excellent quality results. It's lightweight and relies on external codecs.

To play on my PSTriple or 360.

I don't really care about filesize, I just want to keep the same quality

Considering both MKV and AVI support almost every type of video format, you could try something like AVI-Mux GUI to simply remux the MKV to an AVI. Would save a lot of time and preserve quality. I've never tried the program before and it appears quite old, so I'm not sure what its compatibility is like. Regardless, though, I would look for something that could just remux the video.

Edit: Not sure what your experience is like playing videos off of the PS3, but if you are intending to play them off external storage, then file size will matter. It can't be over 4GB. If it is over 4GB, you will have to burn it to disc and play it from there or transfer it to the PS3 HDD (or copy it to the PS3 HDD over your home network).

Edit2: Also, if you intend to play it on the PS3 or 360 via streaming from a PC, then you won't have to convert or remux the videos at all. You can get a streaming program that will basically convert on the fly for you.

Both PS3 and 360 take the mp4 format. If you are not putting anime with subtitles then get PS3Muxer which will simply re-mux the video to a PS3 mp4 format which will also work on the 360. It's easy to use and it does it seconds per video depending on your machine. It also works with 5.1 sound as long as it's not DTS or FLAC.

You don't want them in avi which requires video encoding.

AVI is just a container. It can contain video encoding using almost any codec. You would not necessarily have to re-encode to have them in AVI.

Edit: Also, MP4 is just a container, as well.

I might try that out then. The 4gb limit won't be an issue, I'm pretty sure
