Download: PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 1 Update (Windows) / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 1 Update (Linux) / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 1 Update (OS X)

To quote:

General:

Built from SVN r949. Released as beta because some code changes haven't been widely tested yet.

Changelog:

  • Backwards-incompatible API changes (for plugin developers/packagers) - see HERE for more details
  • Updated binaries build script to include Linux support (thanks, happy.neko!)
  • Updated OS X MPlayer to include fontconfig support
  • Updated Bulgarian translation (thanks, JORDITO!)
  • Updated German translation (thanks, smo!)
  • Updated Dutch translation
  • Added full featured IP filter with support for wildcards and ranges
  • Improved network interface choosing algorithm now skips virtual interfaces

  • Updated JRE auto-download from 6u27 to 7u1
  • Added option to create a desktop shortcut to the Windows installer
  • Renderer image improvements
  • Improvements to tab layouts
  • Maximum bandwidth setting works
  • Limit bandwidth to 110Mb/s by default which should solve a lot of "stuttering playback" reports
  • Speeds displayed in Mb/s instead of Kb/s
  • Recognise forced subtitles (thanks, ExSport!)
  • Clarified English language labels
  • Updated MPlayer and MEncoder on Windows from Sherpya's old builds to SubJunk's new builds which fixes many playback issues, colour-conversion bugs and more (but possibly has drawbacks for some files, too)
  • Main (Status) tab displays a large tick when it's connected to a renderer instead of a PS3 or warning image
  • Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.50 from 0.7.47

There was (sort of) but it was removed to prevent them getting their butts sued!

If you get the source code from the repository at a certain revision you might find it - but you'll then need to build it too
(I'm sure there are comments on the their forum about this which might give a clue as to the revision date)

Personally - i've NEVER had a problem with Cinavia - all my videos play perfectly.

Transcoding of non-natively supported formats appears to be done on the PC side.

Windows Media Server was a little difficult to configure: I had to try to stop it from displaying scanned financial statements, etc. on my PC.

There is also TVersity. Anyone tried that?

is this really any better than the one built into windows 7. I kind of assumed that the ps3 did the encoding and codec side of things. Can a media server really add different formats?

I use the ps3 and xbox all the time to watch films

PS3 Media Server is the best because it's meant for the PS3 specifically, but any media streamer will work.

Found an app called PS3 Media Server; allows video to be streamed from a PC to the PS3.

Looks much better integrated (and supports more video formats) than the Windows Media Server.

Any other similar apps to compare this with?
