 I tried loading streamdev urls like http://vdr:3000/TS/3 with PS3
 browser.. It does understand that it's some sort of stream, but I
 think it mistakes it as mp3 audio for some reason. Perhaps it would
 help if the url would end with .mpg or something.

 So a playlist doesn't help here, because ps3 can't open the stream itself..

 I'm not switching to mediatomb now that I have spend days to get
 Fuppes working. :) Anyway, with Fuppes I can play any video file with
 PS3.

 Anyway, if I use "wget http://127.0.0.1:3000/TS/3" to get a few MB of
 data and save that as "test.mpg", ps3 will show it just fine. So the
 format itself is just fine, I just can't get it streaming..

 I'll probably try to get direct http stream support in fuppes, that
 should do the trick. :)
