Ive noticed lately that a lot of the newer x264 1080p mkv video files that are 'released' dont seem to play in wmp or divxplayer (and therefore my media centre).

 

Im 99% sure its a codec issue (something to do with haali splitter not loading the contained subtitles) as the files seem to play in vlc player which doesnt use outside codecs, but i cant figure out what the problem is. Anyone else having the same problem?

Bang on 4 Gig most of them, the very limit to what will play straight off the bat on a PS3 hard drive, I have lots.

 

 

4gig is not large for a movie in 1080p though?

 

Correct. An m2ts file on a bluray disc will normally be in the region of 25-30G!

 

Most of my mkv 1080p movies are 8-10Gig and look absolutely mint.

It is 1080, and does have 5.1 audio. I dont know what they do to keep the filesize down though, maybe lower the framerate or something... But they do look much better than playing a normal DVD, cant tell if they look better than the bluray origional they came from, coudl test it by DLing a film I have on Bluray
