can the ps3 be connected to the net?
can sshd be installed on it?

if yes to both, then i would suggest that these be done and everyone
who is interrested from ffmpeg/x264/xine/mplayer/xvid/vlc/...
could get an account to port, test and benchmark their code on it

that of course doesnt awnser who would physically get the ps3 or admin
