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):

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!)

That's the problem, my PS3 and PC are in the same network, but I can't find my PC via Mediaserver. But I don't care, I've my external HDD and much work to do with Jailbreak and FTP. So no time for movies. But thanks for explaining it.

Thats odd, but with the PS3 media server its the other way, the ps3 media server is the one that searchs for your PS3. Maybe this way you got lucky, which i doubt, but its worth to try.
