MKV2PS3 is an application that can convert video files in the MKV container format to MP4 video files that are playable e.g. on the Sony PlayStation 3. MKV2PS3 can convert most common MKV files very quickly and has a queue for converting hundreds of files at once. MKV2PS3 can convert files so fast because it doesn't produce strictly standard conformant MP4 files, they play fine on the PS3 and elsewhere (see F.A.Q.), but not everywhere (e.g. not iPhone compatible). Because MKV2PS3 doesn't re-encode the video track, conversion is fast and the resulting video has the exact same high video-quality as the source file. Note that most subtitles are supported (see F.A.Q.) but the PS3 does not display them at this time.
• macOS 10.10 'Yosemite' or later

0.) Download MKV2PS3 from the "Mac App Store" and once it has finished downloading start it from Launchpad or your Applications folder.
1.) Drag the MKV file(s) you want to convert onto the MKV2PS3 icon in the Dock or onto its main window
2.) Select the audio-track to convert and press the "Start Conversion" button
Hint: Leaving the "Destination" popup at "Ask…" will ask you for the file destination when clicking "Start Conversion". You can also select destination folders like you Movies or Downloads folder.
3.) In the preferences you can opt to start converting files as soon as they are dropped, which could be helpful for converting a very large number of files. For best results select a default destination folder for converted files and make sure the default audio language matches your preference.
There are also some 'hidden' options that can only be switched in the 'Terminal' because we deem them to unpopular to complicate the interface with them:
• Insert jobs at bottom, like old versions used to do:
defaults write com.corecode.MKV2PS3 InsertJobsAtBottom -bool YES
• Produce streamable 'fast-start' MP4 files as output:
defaults write com.corecode.MKV2PS3 ProduceStreamableFiles -bool yes
• Don't try to make subtitle conversion more resilient:
defaults write com.corecode.MKV2PS3 FixSubtitleDuration -bool no
