So can we actually play mkv files with this? And if so what format must the hdd be so that the ps3 can see it? Sorry for all these noob questions but I have been out of the scene for too long... Thanks in advance!
no SMB support what is the point, we need a media server that does not require a computer to have a upnp transcoding application running to be able to view media files. we need something with SMB support so that we can access network shares and let the ps3 transcode the media like vlc does when you watch something over network share, the same way XBMC does...
where is XBMC for ps3 come on best media program EVER!
I use playon for my upnp media server from my pc and it works just fine and gives all needed options to use all the plugins to access many online movie/tv websites and they all work without running any app on the ps3 because the ps3 find the media server automatically so what is the point in having this.
The point would be in having an app that can natively (without computers OR SMB support) run .mkv's / .avi's / music on a PS3 system. Add to this the NTFS library and all you'll ever need is a 1tb USB HDD connected to your PS3.
And if it's not useful for you, it is for others so don't dismiss it so soon.
