    stupid question here, sorry :hs:. but the way I play my files on my xbox 360 is I have a folder on my PC that is linked to the 360 and I just stream the normal xvid .avis. With a PS3, is it basically the same thing? just place the file in a folder, link it to the PS3 and it will play the HD high quality video? I don't want to download some 4GB movie that isn't going to look any better than a xvid dvdrip :o

    yea pretty sure thats hows its done. i use vuze to download torrents, my pc/ps3/360 are all hooked on the same router, so it picked up my pc automatically and now lets me browse it for videos, but for some reason i can't see them in folders on my ps3, on the 360 i can. on the ps3 its a giant ass list of every video on my pc. vuze lets me stream to the ps3, not sure if it works through WMP (never tried it with the ps3, only cause i never use my ps3 :hs: )

    1. Download PS3 MediaServer
    2. Install
    3. Run
    4. Set to your movie directory
    PS3 Mediaserver will show up under the Video Menu

    Yes it works. I do it all the time. EZ. You may have to rip them out of MKV's though, I downloaded mkv2vob or whatever the fuck it is and just ripped all my mkvs in one go.
