Christian, I'm also very willing to help. Getting ffmpeg to generate
video from mkv files that can play on the PS3, especially if they
support ac3 or dts is a high priority for me.

I think the first thing to do would be to switch this discussion back to
the dev list. I've cross-posted this reply to dev so people can track
the thread from user to dev but please continue only on the dev list.

I've been doing a fair amount of experimental codding for ffmpeg on the
bitstream filters over the last week or so and I'm starting to get a
little bit of a feel for ffmpeg and I'm ready to dig into the tsmux

will be to take the same source material and remux it using both tsmux
and ffmpeg and then compare results.

This may shed some light on what ffmpeg is doing wrong.
