See here Apple Trailers issue.

Then few facts and a way how netstreaming works:
* You must have rss feed that gives medialink to the internal videostreams. Its no use to have rss links to webpage and/or flash.swf player
* PS3MS has an internal youtube and gametrailers(?) webpage resolver to find internal videostream links. But most videosites do not work out of the box at the moment. You need to get rss feed with links to videostreams.
* Just for fun and exploration see this topic about the external html/rss to PS3MS compatible videostream converter. Its my experimental project and not fully productized, someday I may hack ps3ms sources to allow better rss plugin system.
* if you can play streams fine in VLC standalone player, does not mean can stream it through ps3ms. For example, see Apple trailers issue where streams cannot be converted to TS format due to a fps issue. Its VLC limitations where playback is fine but transcoding has problems from the very same source.

This rss link for example is just links to webpages, someone must program a resolver to find internal videourls then return new rss document with proper videolinks.

Most sites don't like it someone is watching videos without browsing on their skipping all commercials and html ads. Reason why some site resolvers are close to impossible implement. They make it just too hard to parse internal videofeeds.
