    This is honestly the only homebrew application for the PS3 that I use on a regular basis.

    Showtime and MultiMan are pretty much the only homebrew applications I use more than once or twice.

    I really do wish there was a wider selection of homebrew software, but I'm grateful for both of the applications listed above.

    Funny, I have never used this program. I just stream to my PS3 via PC, or USB and never have any issues. I use Divx or just avi file. I convert the files that won't play using Divx.

    But not sure if I am missin anything or not with this program.

    DVD (files) playback at last! Still no physical disk support yet, though.

    The whole idea of this application is to avoid having to convert your media to be able to play it.

    PS3 Media Server is an OK solution if you have a PC fast enough to convert in real-time, but if you have a native player that supports a much wider range of formats, you can cut the conversion out of the picture, and just store your collection directly on the PS3.

    This way I can use my PC while someone watches a movie on the PS3 (or just turn my PC off) which is something you can't do with the "PC -> PS3" streaming option.

    This also avoids any network limitations, which are pretty obvious if the PC and/or PS3 is connected via wireless.

    Not to mention playing movies natively from the PS3 HDD allows for fast/smooth seeking in the video. Try fast-forwarding or rewinding with the streaming method from the PC. You will notice how sluggish and unresponsive it is.

    Basically Showtime is the way to go, and PC to PS3 streaming should only be used as a last resort.

    i done my test again.
    • playback a video (720p video) and closed and open it continuously. It hangs on 7th loop, sometimes 4th loop.
    • DVD ISO is not stable, mostly it hangs at blackscreen (not the console totally)
    • random http error while accessing DLNA service.
    • SMB no password problem, you cant access your SMB share without a password setup on the server (worst thing that they ever done)

    still far from stable release.

    What does "GH" stands for?

    Is it GeoHot or Github or something else?

    I think it's GeoHot, might be wrong though.

    the gh is got geohot firmware.

    If you recall, geohot's firmware required his own special pkg to be able to install them, where as on other CFW all pkg files install.
