    I hooked up medialink and ps3 just fine. I can play music no problem, but videos aren't working! I downloaded terminator 2 in HD and i can't play it. TV shows purchased also don't work. Is this a known issue? Is there a way to play TV shows and Movies purchased from iTunes using Medialink and PS3? I get either a "there are no titles" or "can't play format" errors when I go to the appropriate folders and such... any help much appreciated!

    At the moment, there are a few select formats that can be played in the PS3 via ML.

    You can't watch protected videos such as iTunes because, well, they are protected and must be played on Apple devices. Until the full version of ML2.0 comes out, you can't watch .mkv movies either.

    Any purchased shows from iTunes will not work as they still have a layer of DRM on them. As for other videos, I've had crap luck with MediaLink. PS3 Media Server works FAR better with video content then ML does (at least until they get their transcoding done, if it even works).
