I can't help you out with this - I know the PS3 is very picky about what 
it will play unfortunately.  You might look into running a separate uPNP 
server that will transcode on the fly - I don't know of any linux ones, 
but google may be able to help.

In the frontend, go to Setup -> Media Setup -> Videos Setup -> General 
Settings.  First screen should show you where files need to be.  If you 
don't set it up to browse the file tree, you'll have to do a scan before 
you can see any videos.

FYI - top posting is frowned upon on this list.  A lot of people get 
very upset about it, so my advice is...When in Rome.  (FWIW, I'm as 
Roman as they come in this instance, but I practice a lot more tolerance 
than some of my "countrymen")
