Default Pc to Ps3 watch movies/listen audios

Ok, start up your pc and your ps3, now open Media player 11 via pc, now turn of your firewall, just on media player click under the libary where an arrow pointing down is, now click Media sharing, now click Unknown devices, click add/ok then go on your ps3 and look for your pc under video/audio streaming

When in media shareing in media player 11 you might need to tick both the media boxes and next.

goodluck, works awsome over here

so can you copy movies to your ps3 hard drive that way? or is it just a middle machine that lets you play movies from your pc to your ps3 and then on your bigger tv instead of using your pc monitor?

Media player 11 simply acts as a media server which the PS3 Stream data off of.

But you can copy music and movies to your PS3 also.

i would'nt mind having the media center that has a terabite drive to hold tons of movies on. it would be better than the dvd's because you would never have to worry about the dvd skipping or scratches.

i will get me one, one of these days...as for a ps3...don't own one.

You can Upgrade the hardrive in a PS3,So you could do that.

For a media center computer,i would go for a modded xbox.(In the process of modding mine)




Im just waiting on my 500gb hardrive,and my fancy lighting
