Share media from my Media Player 12 using Windows 7 with my PS3 - Microsoft Community

Just google on that topic and you may find all necessary step by step instructions on doing it.

Do that when you actually get into the groove.
No, you don't have to install any third party applications, BUT, Media servers such as Plex, and XBMC offer an awesome UI, are simple to set up and are highly customizable.

I decided to get the PS3 - I'll download the Plex Media Server and if I have questions , I'll let you know.

Thanks,

I`ve got the original 1st PS3 with the 60 Hard Drive, the thing is awesome for games and blu-ray

I hope you enjoy yours.

You can install a free app on it called Plex that will allow you to use your computer or any storage attached to your computer as a server and you can stream files to it wirelessly over 2.4GHz or 5GHz, or an ethernet cable. You need Plex Media Server installed on your computer and it is very easy to use.....point Plex to where your media is stored and create a folder, TV Shows/Movies for example, and you can stream content via a very nice user interface and a free app.

If you want me to go into more detail just let me know, and I'd be happy to help. I use Plex to stream to 3 different rooms in my house and it is completely free and works very well.
Hi, Kelly,

I downloaded Plex and have a question:

When I get the PS3, do I set up the network through that device?
Sorry for question but I've never set up a network and would like your input.

Thanks,

Paul

Is it also possible to stream wirelessly to another TV if I get some sort of adapter that would recognize that TV?

You can ignore the question about wireless connection to TV.
Tech support says the TV I have (panasonic tx-p50x1) is not wifi ready.

The reason I suggested the Samsung BR Player is because I know Samsung smart products support Plex.....there are a few other brands that support Plex as well, but I'm not sure what they are.

Quote from Plex site:


Quote:
Direct Play and Direct Streaming: whenever we can, we just serve up the file, since lots of DLNA clients support many different formats/codecs. Additionally, we can remux files, which allows playing HD MKV files on a PS3 at full video quality, for example.
Do I set up the PS3 Network directly from the PS3?
My comp says I already have a Network connection - set that up today.

Once you get Plex Media Server set up on your PC, it should be simple as installing an app on the device, and pointing it to your PC's IP address.

Hi Addram,

Just got the PS3 ( using the controller for setup is a chore, but that's not the question.)

When I plug an external hdd or flash drive into the USB port, how do I access it?

There doesn't seem to be a choice on the sreen.

Thanks,

Paul

Hi Kelly,

I downloaded the Plex Media Server and the PS3 recognizes it, but when I click a movie nothing happens.
I click information and it shows that it has the movie on it and the movie plays just fine in the computer. Keeps saying - DLNA error.
PS3 tech support says I have to register it, but I don't see an option for that.
If I can't get it to work, I'll just copy the movies to a flash drive.

Any idea on how to correct this?

Thanks,

Paul
