To Play all kind of media on your playstation3 I found this great tool
PS3 Media Server

Just download the pms-linux here:

It's a mediacenter in Java scripts

Unzip on your desktop (right clic on it -extract)
make the "pms.sh" as exectutable (right clic > properties > permissions)
Copy under sudo in a folder (for me in opt)
create a link on your desktop pointing to pms.sh

install mplayer (see the readme for the codecs but usualy they are already installed with mplayer), mencoder, ffmpeg.

You can as well have a lot of possibilities in the options

It worth to try it after some mkv containers played I forget now the twonkymedia and others media player previously used.

Moved to Desktop Environments; tutorials need to be on-site and not simply a script to download.

it looks interesting, I just found it myself. the issue I have is can it be installed on a headless box? it's dependent on java... which is unfortunate, probably means it's slow haha. cross-platform tho, which is nice...
