I wanted to make an account just so I could thank you for this thread. From following the instructions, I actually got it working on an 800 MHz G4 with 512 MBs of RAM. I imagine it would work terribly for HD files, but I only ever use PMS to stream lo-fi AVI files, because if I have an MKV, I'd rather just convert it to MP4 with Quicktime Pro and stick it on a flash drive, rather than relying on my network connection.

Anyway, thank you for this. I never would've figured this stuff out.

You guys are welcome, I enjoy digging around in code and making things works especially if they are "not supposed to work" lol

Hello!

I have 10.5 PPC on a G4. I did EVERYTHING as listed, but PS3 Media server app won't open. It opens/closes. Can someone help me?

You may have left out a step or some kind of error, hard to guess, without any particular details such as logs etc.

Hi,
Ok - I'm pretty certain I didn't miss any steps, I copied all the compiled binaries that were made into the app. Which logs can I get that could help me?

Did you compile FAAC, FAAD and FFMPEG with shared support and lame as outlined in the very first post? Without meeting these prerequisites it just will not work, I tried making it so that one could just drag and drop the package but unfortunately was not able to do so since I did not have the time to change the install process properly, so those compile processes need to be ran manually. As you can see a little bit up the thread someone else was also able to make it work with a G4 by following these exact instructions...

Yes I did. Should I post the binaries here to show that?

I was using the latest version of PSM server instead of 1.10.5 - sorry about that. Thanks for the help. It's working using 1.10.5.
