Hi everyone, I am really new to this stuff...(sorry for being a noob) anyways tried out Tversity and got . Then i tried out PS3 Media Server and i reckon its great!!! .
Ok, so this is my setup atm: using PMS Version 1.10.51
1) I'm using a laptop: Intel C2Duo P8600 2.26 Ghz, 3GB RAM (Not sure if its powerfull enough)
2) My PS3 is connected via ethernet onto my laptop, my router is a Dynalink RTA1320, i think its on a 100Mbit connection (Although, my laptop is in my bedroom, my Ps3 is in the living room...so the distance is about 15 metres or ethernet wiring)
3) N/A: i dont really have issues on playback atm
4) Dont know too much about which engines are being used whilst transcoding
The reason for my post is this: All my videos play but there are certain cases where video files lag immensely, video can also get really grainy as well. I've been onto the PS3 website and checked out which video files the PS3 can play without PMS...but i dont understand it to my liking. For example, say i have 2 video files both say "xvid.avi" but when i try to stream it through my PS3 one of the files plays perfectly fine whereas the other file will be grainy and play without any sound. Sorry if i'm being so vague.
Btw i have the Klite codecs package installed on my laptop...i hope thats enough...
If you want more info...plz specify and i'll try to clarify it.
