PCMediaServer?

Postby redone632 » Tue Apr 21, 2009 3:40 am

So I absolutely love PS3MediaServer, excellent program. I love it so much that I'd like to use it for all my computers to connect to the file server. Windows Media Center is terrible as it is very slow and it doesn't buffer the videos. So I was wondering if there is a program out there that would do this?

I second that motion.

This is comparable with the popcorn hour

Linux has Totem which is ie. Ubuntus default movie player, it has coherence upnp plugin, which for some reason doesnt find P3MS, but i guess this could be fixed quite easily. XBMC is another project which has support for upnp. I think VLC has upnp support too, or at least in development.

Or maybe I've got it all wrong and there's no reason to transcode video since I have the codecs to play the file on both ends?

You can setup svn ps3 mediaserver to stream only to certain clients.

Can it stream simultaneously to the PS3 and the PC?

Haven't tested, but at least P3MS shows multiple renderers if available: i did renderer profile for my Nokia N95 (which has some upnp capabilities) but unfortunately transcoding wont work with it, but both PS3 and N95 show up as renderers in P3MS and i can copy music to my Nokia, and stream compatible media formats to it.

EDIT: Just tested it, P3MS successfully streamed simultaneously video to ps3 and audio to N95. So it works.
