Is there a way to over-ride the 8 sub-folder max that is in place?

I have my mp3 library buried just a bit deeper than that and would sure like to get the streaming audio.

p.s. I'm not sure if this is a PS3 thing or if it's a PS3 media server thing.

Not sure about your specific question, but you might have an easy way around it. PS3MediaServer by default shows your entire disk from the very top, and some people like that, however it is always possible to provide a list of directories to show instead (including sub-directories, of course). This is especially useful when some of your users do not know or care what your entire disk structure looks like, you can bring them directly to the good stuff.

Thank you, that has solved my problem.

I use TVersity and convert my MKV files to MPG using MKV2VOB. Is there a picture quality difference when streaming straight MKVs using PS3 Media Sever?

Shouldn't be any difference if you use tsMuxer as the engine. tsMuxer basically does the same thing as MKV2VOB but on the fly.

So it can read VOB files straight from the VideoTS folder, but someone has mentioned that it can't read the menus, so no access to chapters or special features? How do you select the different audio features?

What about the multiple VOB files, will it play the movie in its entirety or does it skip from VOB to VOB with a slight pause, or does it require you to select the next VOB once the original one is finished?

Thanks,

great on a mac

Agreed, this thing rocks. I've got it running on our two iMacs over gigabit. I don't seem to have enough jam to transcode mkv's on the fly, but oh well, I run tsmuxergui under Crossover for Mac. PS3MediaServer is worth using for the lack of dropped connections alone, unlike other "paid" solutions.

I've only been using it for a couple weeks, and it kills Nullriver's MediaLink and Mediatomb (the latter I had compiled myself due to lack of a proper Mac version).

I used to be almost jealous of the Windows software available for this purpose, but no more. :D

Nice piece of software. Will not work with my G5 for MKV files and barely with my Core Duo Macbook 512mb of ram. I guess I need to upgrade my Apple machines to take advantage of my new PS3.

A little off topic, but

I want to know if there is anyway to view the PS3 menu via a computer.

I can view and run my Denon 3808 thru my computer. Is this an option with the PS3?

Reason is I dont want to fire up my LCD projector just to be able to navigate the PS3 menu to play music.

Please lets stick to the topic at hand which is the PS3 media server. Questions about remote access to the PS3 can be asked in the Video gaming forum.

somewhat interesting.... if you find a cover art jpg for a movie, and name it exactly the same filename as the movie, with a .cover.jpg at the end, it will show that in the xmb instead of the filmstrip icon.

ex:
Flash.of.Genius.2008.DVDRip.XviD.AC-FLAWL3SS.avi
Flash.of.Genius.2008.DVDRip.XviD.AC-FLAWL3SS.avi.cover.jpg

shows the jpeg in the xmb.

Great program. Love it! But I find it very slow when displaying the files in a folder. For example if I have a lot of pictures in a folder it takes forever to come up with the thumbnails. and as you scroll down it refreshes very slow. Is this normal? This goes for the video files as well but not an issue since I don't have more than a dozen or so files. As far as playinf files there are no issues keeping up with the steaming. This basically means that I can't use it for pictures or music much and I have to keep Twonky active for that.

Tversity keeps the location of the video file even when you back out to the XMB on my PS3. So when you go back to the video, the movie picks up from where you left off.

But with this PS3 MEdia Server, it always restarts from the beginning.

Hi,

PS3 Media Server suddenly doesn't work for me anymore, it was working fine when I first downloaded it but there is now an update and I can't seem to get it to install properly and the program can't find PS3 either now.

I am getting the message at the end of the update that says "Must download before run".

TVersity still works fine for me and I have not made any changes to neither PS3 or the Media Server

Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hmm, works fine for me...I've even switched PS3 users (logged out as me and logged in as my roommate) and the video resumed in the same place.

Not sure what to suggest.
