I was going nuts last night trying to get it to stream some hd videos from Media Player 11. I had a mp4 that was a bitch to get the ps3 to even recogonize, and once I did it shows up as 0 seconds long in the menu. If you try to play it, it says it cannot be started. I copied it to the ps3 hdd and from there it actually displays the correct length, but still gives the same error on playback.
I did a *LOT* of Googling and it looks like Sony seriously F'ed up HD streaming with the v2.5 firmware and hasn't fixed it since. Fuck this DLNA shit and just add smb support.
I tried ps3mediaserver and even that couldn't get it to work. It did work with a tv show that also wouldn't play through wmp11, but the video quality seemed to drop a bit.
