Convert MKV to AVCHD for PS3/Blu-Ray (Easiest Method)

Here we will convert MKV files to AVCHD for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) console and compatible Blu-ray Disc hardware. This method will use as little re-encoding as possible to preserve quality. GOTSent will automate a process that usually involves using several applications to extract streams from MKV files, change h264 stream characteristics and author an AVCHD compilation.

Introduction & Requirements

Software you must download and install
Required: Obviously you will need to download GOTSent for this guide. Download!
Haali Media Splitter
Required: Haali Media Splitter must be installed for proper MKV file support. Download!
Optional: GOTSent downloads as a RAR file, you can use WinRAR to extract it. Download!

The PS3 does not support playing MKV files directly, but it does support AVCHD. These days, most MKV files around contain H.264/AVC video and DTS or AC3 audio. AVCHD is compatible with most content you will find in MKV files, which means the process will usually require no encoding at all. Run the installers for Haali Media Splitter and WinRAR once you have them downloaded

Download and Extract GOTSent Files

The first thing you need to do is open the GOTSent RAR file in WinRAR. If you have never used WinRAR before just install it and then .RAR files will automatically be associated with it. You will see that inside the archive is a bunch of files and folders. What you must do now is go somewhere, anywhere on your HDD and create a folder called GOTSent.

Now using WinRAR, drag and drop the files and folders (CTRL + A to select all) into the GOTSent folder you just created so that it looks similar to the photo supplied with this text. Remember where you have put this folder for later use. It is good to keep all tools of this sort in the same directories so that you can easily find them when needed.
