it took me a lot of trial and error to get the streaming working.

i forget exactly what i did.. changed a lot of security permissions, disabled the firewall and some other shit


I'll have to check out that project BRONZE posted. Looks like you put it on a thumb drive?

EAGLE EYE 02-20-2011 11:53 PM

looks like it can even stream media from macs? that would be nice.

i just put in on my local drive and it works

the PS3 detects 'PS3 media server' and all the files are under there

The PS3 doesn't seem to like streaming music because it doesn't read mine either

my PS3 is streaming mp3 with no issues but the video steam is choppy/laggy

i just turn on the media server on my computer end and play the video from my PS3

i havent changed any settings at all yet


ill try another video and see if its still choppy and let you know

lol so i just turned on my ps3 to stream music from my laptop and I noticed my laptop is now showing up on my ps3 under available media servers

so it sees my pc directly like i was trying to get it to do and it sees the 'PS3 Media Server' too

lol

so i guess i did change all the right setting after all

It streams all my music on my spare windows7 laptop fine. Just has trouble with the mac.

If you have choppy video, try adjusting the size of the buffer option. Make it a higher number.

I've been doing this for a minute......

There's a lot of factors you have to consider:

Your Wireless Router/speeds/features


The Codecs/file type of the movie
http://www.ps3-hacks.com/forums/about4283.html

The program your using to stream

-----------------------


Out the gate you should put your ps3 to a static IP, in the DMZ for your router. Google that shit bitch what do I look like?

get yourself a decent router, and update the firmware on that motherfucker. Doesn't nessicarily have to be an expensive one. Some older routers work good, just check the speeds it can handle.

Linksys WRT54G worked for me until lightening struck, now i'm running an e 3000 with a built in media server. the built in media was garbage, idk if they fixed the bugs i haven't checked for updates for a minute....

use this if you have problems with windows media player server I recommend:

and use this if your NINJA (Mac or Linux) like me:

Good Luck!

at any time in my house.....

The wife is watching a movie on the ps3, I'm watching one on my laptop, and the kids are watching one on the Computer. We don't pay for satellite or cable anymore.

We can have any amount of streaming content going on in our home network no problems. Usually, one person is at least watching Netflix..... You can get it working nice with a little patience and trouble shooting.
