Hmmm... Well, I tried something I've never tried before. I selected #Transcode# and it gave me several options and one of them being MEncoder, which is the one I selected and we've been watching another movie (Star Wars 1977 mkv) and it seems to be playing fine with no overheating. I really don't know what the issue can/could be. I know that although this movie's container is mkv, I don't think its as demanding as the one I had an issue with. I will try some newer movies later tomorrow with the same #Transcode# feature that I've never needed to use (Don't even know what it does).
Like I said, I'm a newbie, I was simply recommended this software for streaming movies by a friend of mine and just downloaded it and connected it to my network. I have never delved through its menus and options of tinkered with anything else other than direct stream. I will report back any issues....

No. The client/renderer still has to actually play the content, independent of whether the PC is streaming/remuxing/transcoding.
So, does this meant that PS3 does all
the work? Sorry for being such a noob
