Just curious what type of media extension are you trying to do?
The PS3 holds Audio, Video, Music and pictures. Has a full browser complete with flash support on the native XMB. You can watch Hulu, youtube, movie sites right from PS3's browser.
It also has media streaming support direct from your PC. Check out this guide. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=158357
About the only thing I can think of is you can't physically download files music, video's to the PS3 unless you're using their PSN server to get your video's.
