Okay, here's how I have mine setup and working:
Go to this link
to download AVIsynth and Vsfilter. I zipped them up for you.
Make sure PS3 media server is not running.
Install AVIsynth, and just let it install to the default location. When it's done installing, copy the contents of VSfilter (4 files) to the root of your C: drive. Right click "vsfilter_enable.cmd" and click run as administrator. Your cmd prompt should pull up and give you 2 confirmations that vsfilter and vsfilterx64.dll were registered. Now copy the two dll files and go to the plugin folder of AVIsynth. Mine is C:\\Program Files (x86)\\AviSynth 2.5\\plugins. Paste the two .dll files into this folder and exit out. Open up PS3 Media Server, and go to transcoding settings. Under video file engines on the left, if AVISynth/Mencoder has a "Red X" next to it, instead of a "Green Arrow", then click AVISynth/Mencoder and then click the little plug looking button on the bottom to load the engine. Once it does that, you'll have to restart the HTTP server, so do that at the top. If it already has a green arrow next to it, then don't worry about it. Then click AVISynth/Mencoder and click the up button on the bottom to make it the first priority engine, and restart the HTTP server, and that's it.
This is how mine is set up, and I have no issues whatsoever. Here's a screen cap of mine, so you can see my settings.
Also, be sure to check your transcoding folder to see if any of the other options in there might work for you.
