It's finally here~ PS3 is definately taking over more and more of my media/living room space.

Wii - haven't touched for a month or so..thikning about paper mario..but didn't get it yet

Xbox - still fun to play but since weekends are taken over by family time..PS3 bluRay is used more now

PS3 - since the update...OMG, PS3 has stayed connected to my TV ever since, kids love to watch Naruto and other anime i downloaded on PC right off of the hDTV. there is a .avi transcode method if you guys are wondering.

man i still haven't gotten this to work properly.

anyone know any good DLNA programs i could use?

Kleptic3620d ago

if you are not using vista, you will need some sort of DLNA compliant media server...wmp 11 works even with xp, but alot of peeps don't even use that...but if you use it, as far as I can tell you have to let WMP know where your files are...the easiest way to just to create a library of whatever you want to share...and leave it at that...as long as WMP knows where the files are...it can stream them as a DLNA server...With Vista the ps3 will be allowed to look all over your hard drive though...so even files that are not in your WMP library will be shown on the ps3...but there are free trials of neroMedia, and a few others (i believe newer versions of itunes are DLNA compliant also)...those should work just as well...

One thing to be sure of is in your network settings you need to find the ps3 on your network...its a "unknown device" as far as windows is concerned...and make sure you set file and media sharing to "allow" or "on" (vista/xp depending)...then make sure password file sharing is set to off...the ps3 has no password protocol for windows...so windows will be waiting for ever if that is set to on...

It took me a little while to get it to work...and you will need to reboot the ps3 the first time you finally get all the sharing stuff turned on...the ps3 will do some server adjustment stuff, and put in a profile...after that you won't need to reboot either the ps3 or the pc...when they are both on, it will always show up...

Nero for mp4s (very clean quality, but i can't get the avi transcoding to work)
and i use tversity for my anime addictions..tversity plays the avis very nicely and i can't complain. I just finished streaming the whole dragon ball z series and i'm downloading GT and another anime series "teknoman". Man i am LOVING this streaming thing..now i can take it to a psp..

good job sony..now give us games!

MikeGdaGod3620d ago

i think i didnt set the password file sharing to off. that may be whats holding it up.

ima try all these when i get in tonight......thanks guys

It's the easiest to use and detects the PS3 instantly..all you do is go to options and allow WMP to share files. Then you select the folders you wish to share and voila.

Kleptic3620d ago

yeah sorry...I haven't set it up with xp yet...just with my notebook that has Vista...I forgot about having to activate sharing in WMP 11 too...vista will share whether WMP wants you to or not...

I am still waiting for the access the ps3 anywhere with a pc...I don't own a psp...never cared for portables since the game gear...I might eventually get one if the price drops again...but I want to able to access videos and stuff from the ps3 through my work pc...

That probably won't happen for a while...and its not really that big of a deal...but yeah, this DLNA stuff is great...I can't wait to stream files back to the pc too...back up the game saves and other ps3 HDD stuff through your network...thats about as good as it gets...

SmokeyMcBear3620d ago

yes..looking good sony, all this needs is a tv tuner, where the cable from the wall can go directly into the ps3, and boom, bonafide badass media center.
