PS3 Media Server stream to PC or is it just PS3?

Postby prestond » Sun May 03, 2009 6:04 pm

I understand that PS3 Media Server streams beautifully to the PS3, but what about streaming to other client's such as pc? Any suggestions on how to do this? I figured since it is DLNA/upnp that it should stream to any compliant upnp streaming client or am I wrong? What works best?

I saw that thread (I did scan through these pages before I posted and also googled) and thought that was for Sony Bravia TVs and thought that the posting was more of a question than an answer. I am very much newbie to the PMS and would appreciate a more comprehensive response. It appears that we have to setup some configuration file for PMS to server to other clients? Where do I find out how to set that up if that is the case? Can it serve more than one client at a time?

I agree prestond, I can find all sorts of answers with the exception of 'how to use WMP as a client for PMS'. I have Win7 RC and PMS works great with my PS3, but I'd like to stream to my (2) laptops (Win7 RC also) in addition to my PS3. I have found threads that say that WMP on Vista and Win7 can be DLNA clients, but I can't find an answer if PMS will stream to them. Anyone have suggestions or answers?

Thanks!

If you really want to do this, take a look through the following thread and try to create a render profile for WMP: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2099
However, with other computers on your network, it's just easier to share the files directly between them. OS's are designed to do that (sounds crazy, right? :P), and you don't have any of the limitations of DLNA.
