Can PS3 Media Server Help me here at all

Postby klangster » Tue May 05, 2009 11:20 pm

I know this is probably a Veeeeery long shot but - here goes!

I've got a lot of Region 1 DVDs and, living in the UK, I have a R2 PS3. Now, I know there are problems trying to make the PS3 region free so I'm wondering if PS3MS could help me play the DVDs via my PC, streaming to the PS3....

I use AnyDVD on my PC to bypass the region encoding so I wondered what the best way is to try and watch my R1 DVDs via my PS3. I guess the best option might be to rip them but I'd love a way to try and actually stream the DVDs from the PC to the PS3.

Probably a pipe dream but...... I can dream!

Just rip it as an ISO file. You won't have access to the DVD menu on the PS3, but you should have access to all of the extras and the movie, and if the extras aren't necessary you can use DVDshrink to take out all of the stuff you don't want. I don't think you can stream the output of the PC's DVD player.
I provide NO application support via PM or email, so please post your question to the forum per the Forum Rules.
