August 28, 2011 // 12:43 am - Following up on their previous updates, today SubJunk has announced that PS3 Media Server version 1.40.0 Beta 2 is released for Windows, Linux and OS X with the changes detailed below.

Download: PS3 Media Server for Windows 1.40.0 Beta 2 / PS3 Media Server for Linux / Unix 1.40.0 Beta 2 / PS3 Media Server for Mac OS X (Intel) 1.40.0 Beta 2 / SVN

PS3 Media Server 1.40.0 Beta 2 Changelog:


  • Built from SVN r813 (OSX version from r812).
  • Released as beta because many code changes haven't been widely tested yet.
  • People have been testing the SubJunk Build, but I have so many things in there right now that aren't in the official trunk so the testing doesn't apply to the trunk as much as it usually does.
  • This will hopefully give us a more trustworthy idea.


  • Updated OS X MPlayer to enable external VOBsub, ASS/SSA and Fribidi support
  • Allow update checks to be performed manually (Windows only)
  • Allow automatic update checks to be enabled (Windows only)
  • Simplify PMS customization for packagers of custom builds
  • Logging fix for headless configurations
  • Added experimental support for iPad / iPhone
  • Fixed DVD ISO playback on OS X (thanks, jjmojojjmojo!)
  • Added support for the AirPlayer app
  • Added support for Samsung TV model SEC_HHP_TV (thanks, coax-!)
  • Added Aperture support on OS X (thanks, coax-!)
  • Added thumbnail support for images (some code from
  • The cache is now reset after each up- or downgrade (for versions higher than 1.40.0)
  • Files with the extension *.vdr are now being recognized as MPG videos

Upgrade Notes:

For 1.23.0 and above:

  • Just uninstall the older version and install newer one

For versions prior to 1.23.0:

  • To retain your old settings you may have to copy your old config file/s to a new directory.
  • To find out where the new directory is on your computer, run the program and go to the Traces tab and look on the 14th line, the line that says "Profile directory:", that is the folder your config files should be saved now.
  • If you use the "media library / cache" option you should reset it.

After quite awhile of being away, it looks like shagrath and the community have updated PS3 Media Server to Beta Update v1.20 Build 412.

Download: PS3 Media Server Beta Update v1.20 Build 412 (Windows) / PS3 Media Server Beta Update v1.20 Build 412 (Linux)

Note: As this is a PC side application, you do not need a JailBroken PS3 to use it with your PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Recent build changes include the following:

- Double check for Mplayer existence and font generation (useful for latest Sherpya's revisions)
- Ability to shutdown DLNAorgPN automatic support for a given renderer (see DLNAOrgPN attribute in the renderer conf file)
- Some hack stuff for mpeg2 remux on Bravia TVs
- RAW generation fixed
- Custom mencoder quality settings for a given renderer

Not sure what changed in 412 specifically though, all I can find is "small change" (suspect a bug fix).
