Google plugs YouTube into Playstation 3

To the surprise of no one, Google is now offering software that streams video, photos, and music from your PC to your television.
The Google Media Server is a free Windows app that sends media files to your TV via the Playstation 3 and other Universal Plug-and-Play (UPnP) devices.
With help from the Google Media Server, your TV can access videos, music, and photos stored on your PC, and naturally, it can tap straight into YouTube, the video-sharing site where Google hopes to serve an enormous number of advertisements.

...I could watch YouTube videos on my PS3 before, and TVersity could already do the UPnP Media Streaming, as could Windows Media Player 11, etc., etc. Wake me up when an app that actually does something new is available -- like NetFlix on Demand from my PS3.

I think this is much easier and more bug free then Tv versity...but prefer winamp remote...It just works...movie service is coming by the way...what I really want is the youtube upload ability....like now...

TVersity never worked for me, neither did Windows 11. Nero did, but the trial period expired.
So I wanna thank google for this app.

ive had zero trouble....you just have to set it up correctly

If you have trouble connecting to the media server with the PS3, you should add these two programs to your Windows Firewall exceptions:

C:\Program Files\TVersity\Media Server\MediaServer.exe
C:\Program Files\TVersity\Media Server\TVersity.exe

any other problem watch this vid http://youtube.com/watch?v=...

TVserity already does a good job (kinda). But the ability to upload to YouTube would be epic win! :D

Tversity is better, easier to use, and more functional.

Now Uninstalling Google Media Server.

wow, if you can copy vids to your hard drive, that'd make it a worthy alternative.
