December 26, 2008 // 8:38 pm - With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, here is some PlayStation 3 news that we missed from earlier this month.

That being said, ps3mediaserver has been working on PS3 Media Server which is a DLNA compliant Upnp Media Server for the PlayStation 3, written in Java, with the purpose of streaming or transcoding any kind of media files, with minimum configuration. It's backed up with the powerful Mplayer/FFmpeg packages.

Downloads: PS3 Media Server for Win32 1.00 / PS3 Media Server for Linux 1.00 / Win32/Linux BETA 1.01 (Update Only) / PS3 Media Server for Mac OSX BETA 1.01

Current Features:

• Ready to launch and play. No codec packs to install. No folder configuration and pre-parsing or this kind of annoying thing. All your folders are directly browsed by the PS3, there's an automatic refresh also.
• Real-time video transcoding via MEncoder, tsMuxer or Avisynth
• DVD ISOs images / VIDEO_TS Folder transcoder
• OGG/FLAC/MPC/APE audio transcoding
• Thumbnail generation for Videos
• You can choose with a virtual folder system your audio/subtitle language on the PS3!
• All formats PS3 natively supports: MP3/WMA, JPG/PNG/GIF/TIFF, and all kind of videos (AVI, MP4, TS, M2TS, MPEG) the PS3 is willing to play
• ZIP/RAR files as browsable folders for pictures/audio files
• Preliminary support for pictures based feeds, such as Flickr and Picasaweb
• Preliminary Internet TV / Web Radio support with VLC, MEncoder or

MPlayer Windows Only:

• Lossless 5.1 PCM transcoding with DTS movies

Finally, in a holiday update HERE on the author's blog he states that the 1.01 is a BETA package, so things could be broken. You just have to extract contents into the application folder (and replace the pms.jar file). Also, an official 1.02 version will follow next.

PS3 Media Server 1.00 and 1.01 BETA Updates Available!

Does it re-encode the video when streaming the subtitles?

what os are you in?

if in vista, try running in admin mode... if in xp make sure none of the files in the folder (including the folder itself) is set to read only in the properties

I have a P4 2.4 Ghz w/ 1g ram. XP Pro

How can I configure this app so my movies that I'm streaming wireless won't skip all the time?

I've been on the phone with linksys and they don't think my wireless router is the problem.

I did notice however it was using alot of memory.

@Conee: I am not using TVersity, I prefer Twonky which I consider much better.

Do you know if that media player supports SUBTITLES (e.g. SRT) ?
