Note: This video was created before PS3 DIVX/XVID support, but can still be followed and it will work perfectly. Since you can now play .avi's you don't have to transcode the file and thus don't have to change the profiles.xml file to transcode into MPEG1/2 etc.


What you need:

1. Tversity ( or
2. Tversity (PS3 Patch
3. FFdshow version 802 (


1. Install Tversity
2. Apply the Tversity PS3 patch

To apply it please follow the steps below:
  • Make sure you have TVersity version installed, otherwise install it. Please note that this patch cannot be applied on top of older versions and is designed for ONLY.
  • Stop media sharing in TVersity (via the advanced menu or the tray icon)
  • Unzip the patch file and copy its content over to the TVersity installation folder (by default it is \Program Files\TVersity\Media Server)
  • Start sharing and try accessing your audio, video and photos from the PS3

3. Install FFDshow revision 802 (uninstall any old versions before installing this)

Once you have done all the above, goto your windows firewall and in exceptions allow Mediaserver.exe ( you can find it at C:\Program Files\TVersity\Media Server\MediaServer.exe ) You may need to allow Tversity also, if it allready hasnt been added automatically.

Ok now that everythings installed and the firewall is sorted its time to try some streaming.

1. Load up Tversity
2. Goto Start/All Programs/ Tversity Media Server/ Tversity Tools/ Start Tversity Media Server. ( This may be done automatically but I always do it manually to make sure the server side bit is running )
3. Add your folders/Files via the Sharing Tab and The Green + Icon.
4. On the Settings Tab Choose the Transcoder option on the left and setup your connection speed (wired or wireless) and screen resolution (I set my Reso to 1920 x 1080 lol)
5. Scroll to bottom of the page and Save your config you have setup.
6. Do the Search for servers on your PS3 and it should now find Tversity server and from there you all know how to play your videos etc.

Hope this helps anyone who's havving problems with Nero not playing avis.

Here's a pic of my transcoding settings for anyone interested in the setup. Sorry bout the stupid box in the picture.
