Default PS3 mkv firmware update?

Just wondering if this is planned at all? seems strange that they wouldn't release this as a firmware update since it places the majority of other files. Any info would be appreciated!

Very good question. Unfortunately I was plagued with "Linksys <--> PS3" media problem so I never got a chance to use this feature on the PS3. Whenever I turned on "media connect" or whatever the PS3 uses it would kick everything off my network

From what I understand, there is no file size limit when running the file from the PS3s internal HDD or streaming. Running from an external drive is a problem because it does not accept HSF+ or NTFS file formats.

Well I just had an issue yesterday with a mk2-to-m4v that was 6+GB and it would not play until I dropped it under 4GB.

No limit when Streaming (TVersity etc) if you use NTFS
Limit if you using FAT32 (4G)

NTFS & FAT32 Info:
