For those wanting to use Windows Media Player

Okay, I know there is not a whole lot of activity on this front. But I have seen that there are some of us trying to make it work. So I thought I would start a thread that deals with it and hopefully those that are interested and/or working on it will join in.

I have built a WMP.conf file (I'm on Mac) and made a WMP.png. Loaded everything in. Fired up. WMP is detected with no problems. However, WMP does not show any media available, indeed it doesn't show my PS3 Media Server at all. All 3 machines I have are detected.

To start off, here is my current CONF file. It detects the 2 versions of WMP that I have out there:

Code: Select all
# ps3mediaserver renderer profile for Windows Media Player
# Refer to PS3.conf for help

RendererName=Windows Media
RendererIcon=WMP.png
UserAgentSearch=UPnP/1.0; Windows|Windows-Media-Player
Video=true
Audio=true
Image=true
SeekByTime=false
TranscodeVideo=MPEGAC3
TranscodeAudio=PCM
DefaultVBVBufSize=true
MuxH264ToMpegTS=true
MuxDTSToMpeg=true
WrapDTSIntoPCM=false
MuxLPCMToMpeg=true
MaxVideoBitrateMbps=0
MaxVideoWidth=0
MaxVideoHeight=0
TranscodeExtensions=ra,rm,ram,mov,qt,mp4
StreamExtensions=wma,wmv,wm,mp3,avi,mpg,mpeg,m1v,mp2,mp3,mpa,mpe,mpv2,m3u,wav,cda


I hand created the various extensions that Microsoft says WMP will play or not.

Now, the first task (or question) is: Why can't WMP see the PS3 Media Server? How can it be fixed?

For those interested I am attaching the WMP.png that I use.
