If I am trying to use my 2 PS3's as receivers in my living room/bedroom with my PC in the basement? What would you recommend?

For Playstation consoles I use PS3 Media Server. I like it quite a bit, it's fairly simple but serves its purpose well.

Anything "mulit platform"? If I want to stream to other devices?

What are you streaming to (besides the ps3)?

I use Plex because of my mobiles, chromecast, etc. which I believe also works with the ps3 and others.

Well I will be streaming to the ps3's mostly but I would like to do my android tablet and as well as my wifi enabled lg tv. You think Plex is a good program?

Windows Media Player can do it.

For the PC, you can use stuff like FRAPS, it's easy to configure and will stream anything. I do like Open Broadcast Software, but some programs can be finicky to get displayed, like some emulators are a hassle to set up. Overall FRAPs is good, but if you're going to save a video, it's uncompressed and will take several gigs until you run it through a compression program.

In that case only if you want to stream remotely (main reason I started using it) and/or want to transcode stuff and PS3MS doesn't work (it's been a while since I used the latter though but I think it was more flexible setup wise).

Main downside to Plex is that the official Android client costs money (about 3) but it's still a local media player for free.

Wrong type of streaming.
