How to use this:

Step2: Install after all that is done you will see a Window that you see below
Step 3: All you have to do now is launch the Media Center.. by click Launch media center on the app. You will see what is below when you launch it.
Step 4: You will see your browser open to the media center. Write down the ip address that will be what you will use to access your files through your ps3. that looks Like 188.8.131.52
Step 5: Power on your ps3 i usually power it on by the ps button on the controller. Then go to your (www) Browser on your ps3. If you don't know how to access the browser go to Network/ www and press X on the XMB.
Step 6: Once the browser has opened press start and type the ip address to your media center to access the files.
Notice: when you launch the media center on your ps3 and click on Videos or Music it says it isn't supported. Don't worrie about that this is still early alha but i found a way to get passed this. On the media center go to the File server and then go where you have your music or videos on your pc. Mine are located in (MY videos And My Music) Then click on that folder and located your music and copy it. One bad thing about this media center is that you have to copy your music one by one. I Hope they fix this in the near future.
