PS3 Media Server

PS3 Media Server

anyone else use this? Been rocking it for about a month now.

it's pretty awesome, I can toss a bunch of dvd iso's in to a folder and it'll play them right off the network.

The faster your network connection, the higher quality content you can pull on the media server.
For 720/1080 quality videos you might wanna toss those directly on the ps3 HD if you don't have a good computer for transcoding or if your network is too slow to handle it.


other than that I have no complaints.

will this allow me to play .mkv files on my ps3? I have lots of videos in .mkv format. I can just convert them but I was wondering if there was a way to just play them without converting.

yes it will, as long as your cpu can handle the transcoding.

Yeah, that's what I've been using since it came out.

PS3 Media Server - Tversity Killer? - Digital Forum

thread is from Jan 09 so I don't know how tversity compares now but apparently it's faster and got a better feature set.

---------- Post added at 10:10 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:36 PM ----------

surprising so far. it works a ton faster and better than tversity. it doesn't make stupid folders. So far, I will only work with this. no more tversity. Thanks for sharing! now is there a way to see the content from any other PC?!

I was able to watch a 720p movie using this over the wireless connection! It stuttered once but that was it. very surprising!

It hasn't shown me one error or 1 slowdown. the interface being a windows type interface rather than a flash one is a ton faster to use. I wish tversity was like this because there are so much about it I like but the speed and efficiency of the PS3mediaServer kills it.

going from a wifiG PC to a wifiN Router to wifi PS3 playing a full DVD gave me some stutter. But nothing crazy. I will hook it back to wifiN or gigabit connected. I think i'll google how to run internet radio from this.

Unless someone knows how to run INTERNET radio .m3u or just the address from the ps3?

I also use PS3 Media server, even though I don't have a PS3. I do however have a Samsung LCD TV that supports DLNA... So I can use PS3MS to play movies (and mp3's and pictures) on my TV (using a wireless N network by the way).

There are some problems though. The TV doesn't support all possible codecs. I can transcode most stuff with PS3MS, but then I can't seem to fast-forward the movies (they'll stop playing). But overall, it's a great program.

yeah I can't really seek forward or backwards with the media center stuff. not sure if it's a bandwidth issue, or the program itself

With TVersity, if you fast forward or rewind a movie, the audio loses sync and for the rest of the movie you will have Chinese dubbing unless you start over.

Especially true for HD content.
