Download: PS3 Media Server 1.51.0 (Windows) / PS3 Media Server 1.51.0 (Linux) / PS3 Media Server 1.51.0 (Mac) / SVN

To quote from SubJunk on the PlayStation 3 Media Server v1.51.0 changes:

  • Fix StartStopListener callbacks for HTTP Engine V1
  • Surface playback start/stop events
  • Make video quality presets localizable
  • Fixed OSX log message about font definitions
  • Fixed double wrapping of streams causing stuttering
  • Added MPEG4 ASP with Qpel support for PS3
  • Allow 15fps video
  • MediaInfo link added to the About tab
  • Updated to latest versions of libraries (codec, jdom, logback and slf4j)
  • Various stability and speed improvements
  • Updated JRE autodownload to 7u3 from 7u2
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder to SB28
  • Updated ImageMagick Convert to 6.7.6
  • Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.54
  • More reliable selection of correct audio channels
  • Improved fast-forward and rewind support

Upgrade Notes:

For 1.23.0 and above:

  • Just uninstall the older version and install newer one

For versions prior to 1.23.0:

  • To retain your old settings you may have to copy your old config file/s to a new directory. To find out where the new directory is on your computer, run the program and go to the Traces tab and look on the 14th line, the line that says "Profile directory:", that is the folder your config files should be saved now.
  • If you use the "media library / cache" option you should reset it.

is this really any better than the one built into windows 7. I kind of assumed that the ps3 did the encoding and codec side of things. Can a media server really add different formats?

I use the ps3 and xbox all the time to watch films

PS3 Media Server is the best because it's meant for the PS3 specifically, but any media streamer will work.

Found an app called PS3 Media Server; allows video to be streamed from a PC to the PS3.

Looks much better integrated (and supports more video formats) than the Windows Media Server.

Any other similar apps to compare this with?
