Can I watch netflix with this on my ps3 3.55 cfw ?
Netflix - surely you can just browse to netflix site in the PS3 browser? I don't have a netflix account so haven't tried it. (It *might* be possible to stream netflix stuff via PS3MediaServer with a plugin, but you'd have to have a look on their forums)
PS3MediaServer is for streaming media files from your PC/network to the PS3 in a format that the PS3 can play. e.g. You have .divx/.xvid/.avi/.mkv/.mpg/.mpeg/other video files on your PC, these can be steamed to the PS3 with on-the-fly transcoding to a format the ps3 can play (if ps3 supports the format, they are streamed directly with no transcoding).
So for example, you have a large collection of (owned!!) DVD's which you've ripped to video files on your pc, you also have some (copyright free!!) downloaded video's on your PC - you can setup your PC with PS3MediaServer and then browse your video's via the PS3's "Video" menu. (also works for MP3's and Photos!)
It can be a little bit of a pain to get configured, but once setup correctly it works very well - i use it with my network storage server to serve all my home movies, family pics etc. I can browse them on my PS3, Android phone, bravia TV in the lounge, Other tv in the bedroom, laptop etc
It's a DNLA server (have a look on wikipedia or just google it). Hope this helps?!

Following up on their PS3 Media Server v1.52.0 release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer SubJunk has announced that PS3 Media Server 1.52.1 is now available for Windows and Linux users with the changes outlined below.
There was (sort of) but it was removed to prevent them getting their butts sued!
If you get the source code from the repository at a certain revision you might find it - but you'll then need to build it too
(I'm sure there are comments on the their forum about this which might give a clue as to the revision date)
Personally - i've NEVER had a problem with Cinavia - all my videos play perfectly.
