streaming tv and movies from opensuse 12.1 to ps3

hi guys i am completely new to linux having been given a laptop on opensuse 12.1 two days ago and i have been scouring the web and trying to find a way to stream to the ps3 like vuze did on my old windows pc

i am a complete newbie i have download and installed mediatomb as suggested on forums here and elsewhere but since then cant locate it or understand what to do next.

i understand i sound like a complete idiot who has no right to be on a linux system but really enjoy what i have seen of it so far i just want it to stream to ps3 and im happy

im sorry to bother you with my moronic problem but if someone could give me a dummy guide to fixing this i would be eternally grateful

thank you

but, what is “the ps3”, and what do you want to “stream” to it?


dd

i want to stream download tv programmes from my pc (opensuse) to my playstation 3 (ps3)

has i mentioned above i used to do this quite easily using vuze on a windows pc but the plugin is not available for vuze on linux

> vuze

i had to google vuze to know it was…so, hopefully someone with some
understanding of windows, ps3 and vuze needs to try to help you…

do you know what method vuze used to move bits from the windows hard
drive to the playstation? that is: was it just an ethernet connection,
FTP, SSH, telenet, hhtp, what?

and, was the stream ‘protected’ by windows/digital rights management?
was the decoding in the ps3 or the win box?

sorry…i have only questions–none of which i need answers to because
if you can answer them all then you can know how to do what you ask…

oh, you know what i think you might be looking for MythTV (which i hear
is painful to setup)

google turns this up (its for ubuntu and i doubt it works easily with
openSUSE): How to Stream to a PS3 From Ubuntu

I’m using vuze(on opensuse) and I have a ps3 but don’t have windows(and happy about that). I could try to see what you are trying to accomplish and set it up on my machine if you would explain what you used to have in windows,vuze and ps3.

Welcome to linux.

Just the same i don’t quite understand why you want to send the programs
through your PS3 instead of direct to your TV (home theater).
