no but it can use tsmuxer for just remuxing content if the video is
h264 but the container cant be read by the ps. alrough tsmuxer isnt
free enough (and it is bundled with ps3mediaserver) it would have to
go to rpmfusion anyways if you want to have it around fully featured.
Forward and rewind doesent work either but thats probably none of the
streaming backends in use can do it (mencoder vlc etc).
