My First Build of MPlayer For PS2
PlayStation Applications - beter_hans - 2006-Oct-29 10:27
here's a very early build. CLI MODE Only.
you can play MP3 WMA etc.. with any bitrate.
and its also with AVI MPEG DIVX XVID ..etc support. but don't try it.
the PS2 system is too slow for it

Among other Linux distributions, Ubuntu, Fedora Core 5, Gentoo, Debian, and Yellow Dog have been run on the PS3.

I know the Xbox had the 'Xbox Media Center Extender' produced by Microsoft but I have no experiance with it.
What types of media stored on my Media Center PC can I access through my Xbox 360?
Live and recorded TV, digital photos, digital music, home video, and exclusive online multimedia content such as news clips, downloadable music, local weather, RSS feeds, and more (through Online Spotlight).
