Thumbs up PS3 Experts: NEED YOUR HELP *NSFW*

Recently I have been trying to play my movie downloads onto my ps3. Half of the time the videos I play are stopped in the first 20 minutes of movie and the sound is then muted. I did some research and found that if I downloaded a program called "showtime" it would not be an issue to play movies. My question is:
How do I install this properly? I already downloaded the .self file but not too sure what to do with it next. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Not exactly what you're looking for, but:

The PS3 (+360) has native divx/xvid playback which should cover almost everything non-HD that you download.

The few remaining files (and nearly all HD files) are in .mkv, which neither PS3 or xbox support natively. I recommend using Xilisoft video converter, which has conversion presets for the PS3 which should give you a perfectly watchable file.

I personally use the xbox to stream non-HD files from a shared folder on my laptop, and for HD, I'm on a different TV that's hooked up to a dedicated computer. You should just run an HDMI cable from your TV/receiver to a laptop.
