To quote from SubJunk on the PlayStation 3 Media Server v1.50.0 changes:

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!)
  • Updated OS X MPlayer to include fontconfig support
  • Language updates:
  • Updated Bulgarian translation (thanks, JORDITO!)
  • Updated German translation (thanks, smo!)
  • Updated Dutch translation
  • Clarified English language labels
  • Speeds displayed in Mb/s instead of Kb/s
  • Added full featured IP filter with support for wildcards and ranges
  • Improved network interface choosing algorithm now skips virtual interfaces
  • Updated libraries (configuration, jgoodies and slf4j)
  • Detect file system changes runtime (adding/removing folders/files).
  • Updated JRE auto-download from 6u27 to 7u1
  • Added option to create a desktop shortcut to the Windows installer
  • Renderer image improvements
  • Improvements to tab layouts
  • Maximum bandwidth setting works

  • Main (Status) tab displays a large tick when it's connected to a renderer instead of a PS3 or warning image
  • Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.51 from 0.7.47
  • New natural sort option for file order: Alphanumeric (e.g. Season 2 before Season 10)
  • Always allow "Restart Server" button (#1186)
  • Updated FFmpeg for Windows to r31564 from r30656

hope it's better than ps3 media server (java)
I don't know what you are talking about!

This is one of the best PC - PS3 APPS available, been using it for ages it streams 1080p mkv files absolutly perfectly, even before I got my Quadcore, it is very user friendly, installs all the required files for you (lots of smaller progs,codecs).Even video files that dont play using it normally (which is rare) can often be played just by going to transcode folder on PS3.It allows you to browse a folder of DVD ISO files on your PC and mount one and stream it automatically to XMB just by pressing X.Tell me , how could this app get much better?!

Don't know why people have problems with this - but I find it SOOOOO much better than plugging in a usb drive...

1. Install PS3MediaServer
2. Setup "General Configuration" tab to use the correct network card (if you have more than one!)
3. Setup "Navigation/Share settings" (Basically just add links to your media directories in the shared folders bit at the bottom.
4. Save, then Restart HTTP Server (buttons at top)
5. Click on Status - it'll tell you if it's connected to your PS3 (or more correctly, when it's detected an incoming request from your PS3 since it's the PS3 that actually initiates the connection)

Also required (on PS3):-
in XMB navigate to settings, then Network Settings - ensure "Media Server Connection" is Enabled.

Possibly also required:-
Check PC's firewall to ensure it allows the program through.
If you're not sure why it's not working, try disabling the firewall for a min and use the XMB->Video->Search for media servers option.

If you still have problems, it's possible your router is getting in the way somehow. Suggest you go to the PS3MediaServer forums and search for similar problems.

I love this thing - My PC has 2 1TB External drives attached which are shared using this, not to mention my 4TB NAS server (on which i have an implementation of ushare installed!)

The other benefit of all this is that I can watch stuff on my Bravia TV, or in the bedroom on my D-Link DSM510 media player.

Best thing since sliced bread (although PSJB comes in a solid second place - if not joint first!)

Yea hehe, whenever a screenshot isn't included with submissions I just Google for one and stick it in... in this case I searched for PS3 Media Server and that was one that popped up.
Here's a better image for you (it's one of PS3MediaServer!)
