World's First NAS for PS3 & Xbox 360 DLNA Media Streaming

The leading network-attached storage (NAS) provider- QNAP Systems, Inc. today announced the release of the latest firmware for the All-in-one NAS, TS-109 and TS-209 series to fully support the DLNA media playing function of Sony PlayStation3 and Microsoft Xbox360.

The new firmware enhances the DLNA multimedia sharing support for video game consoles to enrich the digital home applications. All the multimedia contents stored on QNAP NAS can be automatically shared to a PS3 or an Xbox360 in the home network. Users can play their stored photos and videos on a TV, or listen to the music via their Hi-Fi system. QNAP NAS can be a perfect home storage and sharing center for establishing a PC-less, HD video-playing (via PS3, video resolution up to 1080p), highly accessible, and power-saving digital home theatre.

Never heard about TwonkyMedia (that's the server they are using). Does anybody know, if that converts video streams to MP4 dynamically ? Or do you need mp4 raw material to view on the PS3 ?

But I now prefer to use TVersity exclusively.

Not only is it absolutely free, but converts and streams virtually any format that your PC supports to your PS3 ON THE FLY.

Although I've had some occasional bug issues with DivX (c'mon Sony, just give us a codec already, will ya!?!?), it's an overall rather rock-solid media server.

Note that in order to ensure that TVersity supports all preferred codecs, it's recommended that you install (the also free and fabulous) FFDShow, which consists of a series of various codecs, thereby allowing your PC to support and intricately control Divx, Xvid, MP4, etc.

If your interested, check out TVersity's website:

Here's a site for downloading FFDShow:

I was looking for a Linux based solution but AFAIS all the servers use the windows media player (or its plugins) to convert the media. I haven't found anything which does the same on Linux. Any idea ?
I had the most success so far with uShare, but no luck to play any video, so far (even a copied file from the PS3 to the server and then playback thru the server - might have done something wrong).

Sorry, but I haven't yet delved into that universe, despite my best intentions to do so.

A quick search on the TVersity website, queried some Linux-related forum hits which may help get you going:

I hope this helps a bit.
