As I've mentioned before, Mediatomb is the fantastic media streamer that works great with a PS3. With streaming, you don't have to worry about loading movies separately on your playing device, it just works!
The latest update to Mediatomb on Debian caused everything to go wacky. What a disappointment on movie night! Eventually, I had to go directly to the source (SVN) and compile it. Such is the life, when you are living on the edge!
