To quote: Built from SVN r970. Released as beta because some code changes haven't been widely tested yet. No new features have been added since 1.50.0 Beta 1 but many bugs have been fixed.

Changelog:

  • Backwards-incompatible API changes (for plugin developers/packagers) - see ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12235 for more details
  • Updated binaries build script to include Linux support (thanks, happy.neko!)

  • Added option to create a desktop shortcut to the Windows installer
  • Renderer image improvements
  • Improvements to tab layouts
  • Maximum bandwidth setting works
  • Limit bandwidth to 110Mb/s by default which should solve a lot of "stuttering playback" reports
  • Speeds displayed in Mb/s instead of Kb/s
  • Recognise forced subtitles (thanks, ExSport!)
  • Clarified English language labels
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder on Windows from Sherpya's old builds to SubJunk's new builds which fixes many playback issues, color-conversion bugs and more (but possibly has drawbacks for some files, too)
  • Main (Status) tab displays a large tick when it's connected to a renderer instead of a PS3 or warning image
  • Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.50 from 0.7.47

Lots of changes this time!

Notes:

Version: The Windows and Mac OS X versions are 1.70.1 rather than 1.70.0 due to a packaging issue spotted during release. There is no functional difference between 1.70.0 and 1.70.1.

Upgrade Notes:

Issues with the sample PMS.conf file bundled with PMS 1.53.0 to 1.60.0:

Prior to this release, the sample PMS.conf bundled with PMS since 1.53.0 (June 2012) set values different to the built-in defaults. If you created a PMS.conf by copying one of these sample files to your profile directory, it should be removed and settings should be re-entered and saved in the GUI.

Changes to default settings:

Two default settings have been changed in this release: the default web video engine (FFmpeg Web Video) and the default file sort order (alphanumeric). As a result of these changes, you are advised to back up and remove your old PMS.conf and re-enter and save your settings (if any) in the GUI.

Alternatively (e.g. if you have a large number of customizations you wish to preserve), the new defaults can be enabled in PMS.conf by removing the following properties (if they exist):

Can I watch netflix with this on my ps3 3.55 cfw ?

Netflix - surely you can just browse to netflix site in the PS3 browser? I don't have a netflix account so haven't tried it. (It *might* be possible to stream netflix stuff via PS3MediaServer with a plugin, but you'd have to have a look on their forums)

PS3MediaServer is for streaming media files from your PC/network to the PS3 in a format that the PS3 can play. e.g. You have .divx/.xvid/.avi/.mkv/.mpg/.mpeg/other video files on your PC, these can be steamed to the PS3 with on-the-fly transcoding to a format the ps3 can play (if ps3 supports the format, they are streamed directly with no transcoding).

So for example, you have a large collection of (owned!!) DVD's which you've ripped to video files on your pc, you also have some (copyright free!!) downloaded video's on your PC - you can setup your PC with PS3MediaServer and then browse your video's via the PS3's "Video" menu. (also works for MP3's and Photos!)

It can be a little bit of a pain to get configured, but once setup correctly it works very well - i use it with my network storage server to serve all my home movies, family pics etc. I can browse them on my PS3, Android phone, bravia TV in the lounge, Other tv in the bedroom, laptop etc

It's a DNLA server (have a look on wikipedia or just google it). Hope this helps?!
