I setup a Complete Media Server with TVeristy but I took it higher Just for PS3, PSP, Xbox 360, and PC I can even do my media over the web like a remote Music location were you use the browser.
On My build has Free and opensource software and all for FREE
Media Server: TVerisity (with TVersity Codec Pack installed) URL: http://tversity.com/

Download the Web server with link provided
Extract the Web Server folder to were you want C drive or what ever
After you extract the Web server you have to edit .htaccess for LAN or Public access
Then in folder www
# This file provides security to the server limiting access to the localhost only.
# Comment to deactivate.
#Allow from LAN or Public access
Allow from all
#Only allow Local host this computer to access the webserver
# Allow from 127.0.0.1
# To allow execution of cgi scripts in this directory uncomment next two lines.
AddHandler cgi-script .pl .cgi
Options +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks
# Activate this to use the Private Server Feature!
# To lock server, uncomment the next 4 lines.
# Defaults: Username - root; Password - root
#AuthName "Uniform Server - Server Access"
you can create your directorys and in each of the directorys create a folder name “ recycle_bin ” in stage 4 it will make it easy.
Uniserver creates a Virtual drive in Windows Z:\ this will come handy in stage 4
Download and install Tverisity at the site provided
During install do Download and Install Tveristy Codec pack and ffdshow
To add your folders in to your Tveristy library
-launch Tverisy from the shortcut on the desktop
-Click on library on the top
- “+Add Item”
-look for folder path
-Fill in Title

Use the get started link to help you http://www.xlightftpd.com/tutorial/get_started.html
-The Home path is the folder were all your stuff is
-The Home Path Premissions need to be set before you can upload folder
Stage 4 (I decided to add this)
To add a Ajax File Browser to were you can access it away from home
Download AjaXplorer http://www.ajaxplorer.info/wordpress/
Extract AjaXplorer into the www in Uniserver
Then go to http://localhost/ Then you should get AjaXplorer Diagnostic Tool
The only warning is the Zlib extension just click “click here to continue to AjaXplorer!”
It will create a Admin account with a default password
Default – Username : admin Password: admin
Login as admin but I STRONGLY suggest change the password if you decide to but this on the web.
Add the Directories
-Click on the drop down menu “Default Files” and select “Settings”
-On the top bar look for “New Repo.”
-Fill in Repository Label
-Repository Driver Select File System then fill it out
Example “For my Case”
After that then save
Repository Label : Podcasts
Repository Driver : File system (Standard)
Recycle Bin : recycle_bin
File Creation Mask : 0777
Default Rights : rw
then go to Users
Double Click on the Admin Account to edit
Then you will see “ Repositories Acess ”
find the folder(s) created and check Read and Write then click ok
Then click were the settings drop down is and make sure the folder you added is there
if you check your folder in the drop down but you don't see your files check for the recycle_bin folder.
Stage 5 (optional)
For Remote control of the desktop Download TightVNC from the link provided on top.
Install it and if you want it to start have the installer install Service mode.
Then double click on the TightVNC icon down by the clock on windows and to setup in a simple password on the first tab “Server”.
To View the Computer download TightVNC Viewer and if the server is configure right all you have to do is type in the IP of the Computer and it should ask for your password.
My Media Server

I did have to download some stuff so this tutoral took over an hour on a 5KB/s connection. The Build I did up before I moved when I had DSL. Doing this tutoral I even had to redo my media server file structure.
