My friend's PS3 found Azureus, which was running on his laptop. Still gets error messages, but if he finds a way to stream his downloaded movies, I guarantee he'll never buy a Blu-Ray disc or DVD ever again. Anyone know how to configure that app?

Nero 7 works fine but I dont want to stream. I want to play directly off a external HD. Anyone got Linux on. Can you install players and run .avi's on linux?

I used this guide to install vlc in linux. I've only come across maybe 2 files that wouldn't play right out of maybe 100 tried. It works pretty good but there is screen tearing during fast action scenes.
