Media Server won't find my PS3

Postby Collected » Wed Jan 21, 2009 8:23 pm

I hope someone can help.. I hear this program is wonderful..

Sadly it won't find my PS3, whatever I try.

The log states:

[main] TRACE 19:00:22.414 Starting Java PS3 Media Server v1.03
[main] TRACE 19:00:22.415 by shagrath / 2008

[main] TRACE 19:00:22.417 Encoding: Cp1252
[main] TRACE 19:00:22.453 Temp folder: C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Temp\javaps3media

And that's it. The main screen says: "Contacting PS3..." and just sits there in silence.

I've tried reinstalling, tried the older version, re-tried the newer version.

The PS3 can see my PC (I've been browsing my Windows Media Player files on the PS3).. so I'm confident the principles are working fine.. the networking seems OK.. yet it just won't find my PS3. It doesn't even seem to be trying to find it based on the log info. I'm running Vista btw. My windows firewall is disabled. I can't see anything listening on port 5001 if I do netstat -a. I've even tried running as administrator, although my Vista doesn't require this.

Any suggestions? I've looked at other peoples logs and they seem to get much more activity before hitting problems. Mine stops right after temp folder.

Stops there. Is it possible my VLC is the problem?

After doing some investigation, the problem would appear to be VLC.

vlc.exe is being launched as a process (I can see it in the processes list).. infact I had about 15 vlc.exe due to all the attempts.

So cleared them all and tried again, and vlc.exe appeared again.. and still no success.

It's VLC 0.9.8a. Should I perhaps uninstall it?

I guess I have to implement some fail safe mechanism in this part of the application
and yes, uninstall it will solve your issue I think

Ok so if I kill VLC in the processes list, it works and finds the PS3 immediately.. so it would appear it's hanging on this VLC. Maybe it's the version? It's quite new.

Otherwise, it has now found the PS3 so I'm happy. Thank you for your awesome support and app!!
