PS3 as mediacenter (playing MKV files)

Some notes so I don't forget the links.

Just install ffmpeg following this guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=786095

I've used the ./configure inside the next link (outdated for karmic) http://juliensimon.blogspot.com/2009/01/howto-converting-mkv-files-to-play-on.html
With quite good examples and notes on troubleshooting.

By the way, I wouldn't try to stream 1080p/i or 720p through wifi, not even with 802.11n, if I have the chance I would like to try a gigabit network. Numbers are tight, but if you want to try, ps3mediacenter works well.
The way I see high definition videos with the ps3 is dowloading the files first to the ps3, for example through a web server, in my case lighthttp.
