PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 Arrives for Windows, Linux & Mac


Sponsored Links
174w ago - Following up on his previous release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer SubJunk has updated PS3 Media Server to version 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Windows, Linux and Mac which includes several bug fixes as detailed below.

Download: PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Windows / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Linux / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 Beta 2 for Mac

To quote: Built from SVN r970. Released as beta because some code changes haven't been widely tested yet. No new features have been added since 1.50.0 Beta 1 but many bugs have been fixed.

Changelog:

  • Backwards-incompatible API changes (for plugin developers/packagers) - see ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12235 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 libraries (configuration, jgoodies and slf4j)
  • Detect file system changes runtime (adding/removing folders/files).
  • 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, color-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

Obviously no-one is developing on MAC as the announcement thread states that they need someone to build it.

Still - Windows and Linux users can hack on! Another day, another release! (wow, seems things have started moving a bit more over at PMS!) Anyway, check out release 1.23 changes:

Important note for Windows users: 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.

Right now the Linux and Windows versions are available, with the OS X build coming soon (still having problems making it, sorry to everyone affected)

Changelog:

  • Fixed Windows service
  • Windows service now starts automatically with the computer
  • Sony Bravia Z5500 (and possibly others) work again
  • Fixed PS3 not being detected for some users
  • Support cellphone/smartphone (3gp) videos
  • Windows service is uninstalled with program
  • Detect Popcorn Hour and WDTV live more reliably
  • English, Russian and Dutch language updates

Download links:
Windows: https://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/downloads/detail?name=pms-setup-windows-1.23.0.exe
Linux: https://code.google.com/p/ps3mediaserver/downloads/detail?name=pms-generic-linux-unix-1.23.0.tgz
Mac: Unavailable at the moment.

Or you can always get the "current" version from the main page: http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/

For anyone who is using PS3 Media Server: PS3 Media Server 1.22.0 is released (posted above).

Looking at the release thread, it seems that a few people are saying that the latest PS3 firmware doesn't support PMS anymore either (worth bearing in mind if you're actually considering installing it!)

PS3NEWS - don't know if you want to put this on the front page - in particular the bit about the latest PS3 firmware not liking PS3 media server (including the latest version).

EDIT: Oops kinda missed the boat on the announcement there didn't i - still I think the bit about the latest PS3 firmware not liking it (maybe other DNLA servers too?) was worth mentioning!

Edit/double post 2: p.s. your link to the MAC download is the older build (1.20.409) - not that i care, just thought it worth pointing out

Sorry again for the double post
(I only really write that so you can see this next bit is from a 2nd post! lol)

Ok, so i've taken some images of my settings in case they help anyone out - here they are:-
(Note i've only taken images of the main transcode engines - the others might as well be disabled in my case)

General Config:



Navigation/Share:-



Transcoding (Common):-



Transcoding (Video):-



Transcoding (Audio):-



Transcoding (Misc engines):-



(You might need to right click and "open image" to see them properly

Should also note that i run mine using the pms.bat file, which i modified to the following:-

[Register or Login to view code]


(Increasing the available memory by changing the -Xmx bit to: "-Xmx1536M")

Oh and as a side note - i've just noticed that they've updated to 1.21.1 today too! (Announcement link: http://www.ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10736)

That really doesn't sound right to me - you shouldn't actually be able to play the MP3's via the PS3's VIDEO menu. You should only be able to play them via the music menu - i know because this is the one thing that's always annoyed me about the XMB. Personally i think there should be a separate XMB menu (link network/game etc) for "Media servers" that just lists everything in one place and allows you to start MP3/Pictures or Video in the same place!

With regard to the search for "Media Servers" option (which BTW appears on Pictures,Music and Video in XMB) - you shouldn't actually need to do this manually - it should just show up a few seconds after you start up PSM on your PC. If it doesn't show up automatically, then there may be something wrong with your router/firewall or something(?).

Yea i'm playing it through the video option.. The video menu has an option to search for media servers so i do that and then after identifying it lists the media server under the video category.. I'm able to browse through it to my laptop but the thing is that it only plays mp3 files while still browsing through the media server listed in the video category but doesnt play the mkv or avi files...

What are people talking about this program not working?

I've tried this program on three different computers and a virtual machine (WinXP VM, Windows Vista, Windows 7 & Ubuntu Linux). And for streaming 1080p h.264 (MKV) it just simply works and uses very little CPU (was using my old 2ghz single core in linux) so obviously people here have not followed the instructions properly.

Now TVersity, that program really does run like crap and transcodes everything rather than just changing the container, and the interface makes me want to headbutt the desk. But each to their own.

The only problem I'm having with the Linux version of PS3MediaServer is not being able to transcode 24bit flac to 24bit lpcm (in a video stream), the Windows version works but not the Linux and that makes me sad.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but you are trying to play the video's via VIDEO and not via MUSIC on your PS3 aren't you?!
(It will only play MP3's/music files via MUSIC, Avi's divx/xvid etc will only play if selected via VIDEO)

(I've been caught out myself by that - browsing through video clips while in the MUSIC menu!)

Re setup & configuration:

I run mine on an ACER REVO Nettop (not very powerful at all) - Generally i don't bother with the transcoding and almost everything plays (very well).
I haven't really bothered with the transcoding, but i've got everything set as per the DEFAULTS and when i do want to transcode on the fly it works (albeit it pretty badly on my machine)
So - my situation:
1. Install it
2. Run it
3. Add some media folders, hide the #transcode# folder, hide transcode engine names, hide media library folder - leave everything else as is.
4. Ensure firewall / router are correctly configured
5. Watch near HD quality tv shows on my PS3

(Don't get why people slate this so much - its a superb bit of software, my experience has been so much better with this that with TVersity)

Actually, i've just been fiddling with some of the transcode settings here and it's working flawlessly on my Acer Revo (running win7 with a windows rating of 3.3).

If anyone's interested in my settings, let me know and i'll post them for you maybe all you need is to tweak yours and it will work.
