If you want to transcode, it must be to H.264 and AAC, and must be in an MP4 container, or a transport stream.  Additionally, the PS3 has undocumented restrictions on compression options used with H264, but most encoder programs will have a profile for the PS3 or similar devices.

I find transport streams have the best chance of working, PS3 is very fussy but gives great playback results.
