I currently use various ways to stream video around the house. I have most of my video from home movies, and other content on my home Mac. I run Nullriver?s Medialink product to stream from the Mac to my Playstation 3. Medlalink also allows me to stream pictures and iTunes to my Playstation. I also run Vuze on my Mac that allows me to connect and stream to my DirecTV box, however, the quality is not great.
Recently, I purchased a Roku box which allows me to stream video from Netflix to my television at the back of the house, and now I hear the exciting announcement that Netflix will provision the Playstation to stream Netflix content by the end of the year.
So many choices, but the technology is converging.
