    On the USB stick icon, press triangle, then choose display all.

    Exactly. Also make sure you are under the VIDEO tab. To this day, I sometimes forget to switch tabs when I switching between music, pictures, ect.
    Anyway...Problem fixed?

    I've never used GOTSent, but it looks like it'd work just right. Me, I prefer more control and use MeGUI w/ AviSynth, but that's far more complicated than necessary.

    There are a lot of one-step converters out there that work okay, and GOTSent seems like another one of them.

    .cbr is no video container, it's a comic book reader file, just change the ending to .rar and you should be able to open it with WinRAR on your PC. It's an archive filled with pictures.

    lol bumping a three year old thread instead of creating your own >.<
    Anyhow, the only way you will be able to play those files is if you install Linux...

    considering that MKV files are just containers... lol just pointing that out... as for cbr im pretty sure you either read them on pc or as marcusita pointed it out install linux on ps3 lol or use showtime on cfw to watch mkv
