    Converting DVD Rip with MakeMKV to Ps3 Format and Keep Subtitles?

    I was wondering what the best way to convert an mkv ripped with makemkv to a ps3 playable format and keep subtitles that can be toggled?

    Rather than converting the files, you could run ps3mediaserver on the Ubuntu box, then connect to it from the PS3 using the DLNA protocol that it supports natively. It should do the conversions on-the-fly. I don't know about how it handles soft subtitles, though.

    Natively the PS3 does not support Matroska. The only supported container that handles subs is MP4. Handbrake can convert to that format and preserve the subtitles. If you want to use Handbrake, follow the instructions on this page to add the repository for Ubuntu.

    If you are willing to have "hard" subtitles, ones burnt into the video image, you can convert to XviD+MP3 in the AVI container with ffmpeg or mencoder.

    Handbrake can preserve the subtitles and have them optional on ps3? I thought that it only worked with forced subtitles? I also tried media server before but i'm on wifi and far away from router so i prefer a native format. It would be awefully nice to rip my dvds and have them on the harddrive.
