Download: PS3 Media Server 1.51.0 (Windows) / PS3 Media Server 1.51.0 (Linux) / PS3 Media Server 1.51.0 (Mac) / SVN

To quote from SubJunk on the PlayStation 3 Media Server v1.51.0 changes:

  • Fix StartStopListener callbacks for HTTP Engine V1
  • Surface playback start/stop events
  • Make video quality presets localizable
  • Fixed OSX log message about font definitions
  • Fixed double wrapping of streams causing stuttering
  • Added MPEG4 ASP with Qpel support for PS3
  • Allow 15fps video
  • MediaInfo link added to the About tab
  • Updated to latest versions of libraries (codec, jdom, logback and slf4j)
  • Various stability and speed improvements
  • Updated JRE autodownload to 7u3 from 7u2

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.

pretty sure you can do that already - just save your image in a folder (I called mine "Images" and add the following line with correct image file name!) to the relevant .conf file (found in C:\Program Files\PS3 Media Server\renderers\)

i.e. PS3.conf in your case:-

RendererIcon=images/PhatPS3.png

Hi guys,

maybe you can help me with this problem. The problem is the following:

I have a PS3 CHECHK01 upgraded to 500 gb running KMEAW CFW 3.55. Before I used FileZilla to FTP the movies to my internal hard disk, only until I saw that PS Media Server was build also for Mac OSX. So since the first version for Mac/OSX I used it to stream the movies to my Playstation 3.

I own a Macbook Pro 2.3 ghz Intel Core i5 with 4 gb internal memory. But yesterday after upgrading to 1.70.1 the movies are staggering very worse. No fluid screen any more.

I tried many things such as downgrading to the older version 1.53/1.54, change some preferences but nothing seems to work.
I tried it with direct LAN (always used this) and also over my wireless network.

Does anybody know how to reset PSM to default settings on Mac OSX or knows a solution?

Thanks guys!

Allright, I fixed it. Deleted the old conf file on Mac OSX and forced the LAN network in PMS.

So everything is back up working again
