Download: PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 (Windows) / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 (Linux) / PS3 Media Server 1.50.0 (Mac)

To quote from SubJunk on the PlayStation 3 Media Server v1.50.0 changes:

  • Updated OS X MPlayer to include fontconfig support
  • Language updates:
  • Updated Bulgarian translation (thanks, JORDITO!)

  • Clarified English language labels
  • Speeds displayed in Mb/s instead of Kb/s
  • 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)

  • Added option to create a desktop shortcut to the Windows installer
  • Renderer image improvements

  • Updated MediaInfo to 0.7.51 from 0.7.47
  • New natural sort option for file order: Alphanumeric (e.g. Season 2 before Season 10)
  • Always allow "Restart Server" button (#1186)

if you use it with showtime 3.0 you dont even have to use the on the fly reencoding (nor any other remuxxing etc) of the ps3 media server as it streams mkv directly... its not yet perfect thought... 720p playback works quite well, 1080p starts to stutter where it does not when transcoding mkv for the "normal" xmb media server playback.. i found a renderer conf working for me... over here: ps3mediaserver.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=11424

p.s. thanks to sportsstar99 for that... and btw the reason it stutters at 1080p is that (at least showtime shows that status) the cpu is too slow... dunno how that could be since untouched stuff runs just fine but im not that deep into that kinda stuff

I just md5 tested the windows one, and the codes are wrong. Can someone test this as well, just in case I had a bad download.

This is meant to be the code for setup-windows-1.24.0.exe
ce854d42ec2cd21bcfd9abfcac71869834e8c0d7 but its not right on the downloads, carefully peeps.
