- Some of you may have heard the term ‚‚ā¨úDLNA‚‚ā¨Ě on this blog or elsewhere, and the term has been discussed recently with the 2.10 firmware update that added DivX video support.
For those who aren‚‚ā¨ôt familiar or want a refresher, DLNA stands for Digital Living Network Alliance ‚‚ā¨" it‚‚ā¨ôs basically a group of companies developing technology to make it easier to share videos, music, and photos between devices. PS3 is DLNA-compliant, so the system can ‚‚ā¨útalk‚‚ā¨Ě to your PC and access media files on your PC‚‚ā¨ôs hard drive. There are multiple ways to setup DLNA on your PC, and Eric Lempel covered one of them here. Another great option is TVersity.
What‚‚ā¨ôs cool about PS3‚‚ā¨ôs DLNA feature is that it‚‚ā¨ôs not limited to your living room. Combine the feature with Remote Play, and you can play back media files using your PSP wherever there‚‚ā¨ôs a Wi-Fi hotspot.
If you‚‚ā¨ôre traveling for the holidays and you‚‚ā¨ôre stuck at the airport, DLNA and Remote Play won‚‚ā¨ôt make your delay any shorter, but it can certainly make the time go by faster.
