i am listening but just adding in what i think the problem is..
my pc and ps3 have an ip adress in the same range like
should that be fine? the problem is that even an mp3 doesn't start running,i am having to copy them and for movies they take a bit to start
my ps3 isn't close to my router or my pc so no good. i used wmp only at first, i was not able to play anything, then i tried ps3mediaserver.
i am able to transfer files but have some problem in transfering them.
