Converting an MKV (h264) File to PS3 MP4 Without Re-encoding on Mac OS X

January 26, 2008

I searched a *long* time on the net trying to find out how to convert a HD mkv file to an MP4 file for play on the PS3 without re-encoding on Mac OS X. Couldn’t find anything that didn’t cost any money which was rather irritating; lots of question, not really any answers.

But, what I did find was how to do it on Linux. Which was great because through MacPorts, we on OS X have access to many of the same tools. Unfortunately, I had to spend a significant amount of time to patch work the different tutorials and tweek them to work on OS X. So, hopefully this will save some other poor soul some frustration.
