Hi guys I have just come upon this awesome program and am looking for some advice. I have a high def mkv video file on my laptop that I would like to stream to my PS3 (which is in my entertainment room in the basement). Upon installing PS3 Media Server I was pleased to see that the file did indeed play on the PS3 (had no luck with any other program) but it skipped quite a bit as if it were buffering continuously. I have since discovered that the problem must lie in the PS3's wireless g card so I am thinking a wired connection would be better.
With the devices I have at my disposal (Laptop, Desktop upstairs that could be routed downstairs with ethernet cable, Wireless Router, PS3) what would you do to optimize the PS3/PS3 Media Server "experience"?
Device Specs: Laptop Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium Processor: Intel core 2 duo 1.67GHz Ram: 2GB Internet Connection: Wireless
Desktop Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium Processor: AMD Athlon 64X 2 dual core 3GHz Ram: 3GB Internet Connection: Wired
I appreciate any help you can give me!
Edit: For example would I connect a computer that is already connected to the router to the PS3 and if so would a faster comp provide more benefit? If so than would it be best to use the desktop, connect a separate ethernet cable to the desktop and then run it to the PS3?
Wired is always better than wireless. 100mbit should work in most cases except for some 1080P's where gigabit is necessary. As for your two PC specs, your desktop is better, and if it's already ready to be wired to the router, then just go with that
