Streaming not working

Postby hubris » Wed May 20, 2009 8:13 pm


I'm trying to use the PS3 Media Server and i successfully did in the past.
Now I'm running into problems

What i do:
Turn on PS3
Turn on PSM

What happens:
PS3 detects PSM
PSM detects PS3
I go down the folders I'm streaming and that all works.
I open the map that contains the movie i would like to so and that works. I can see the thumbnails
When i start the movie (no matter what file type it has) nothing happens.
In PSM i can see the buffer filling but after 3 sec it goes to empty
On my television i mostly get the error: "Media Server Error: An HTTP error (-2147284704) has occurred" and on occasion "Data format not supported".

On my machine everything is configured the way it should be and on the PS3 the same.

The only thing i can come up with is the fact that my router doesn't support UPNP but then again sometimes it works...

Anyone has/had this problem?

Specs: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 @ 3.0Ghz, 4Gb RAM Memory, Windows Vista SP1
Network: All switches, cables and PC ports are 1Gb (except the router but data doesn't go through this unless it needs to go to the internet)

Have you tried playing the files with MEncoder in the #Transcode# folder available at the top of the directory?
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.

I'm also having this issue. All the Transcode Options do not work.

Playing around with the settings doesn't solve the problem.
The only thing i can think of is the fact that it is Vista.

I have another comp here that works like a charm but it runs XP (and isn't powerfull enough to stream 1080p files)
