What is a medie server? I can search for media servers on my ps3 but never find one

#2 Posted by dewmandew7 (4152 posts) -

An example of a media server is Windows Media Player 11. If you set it up for file sharing and your PC is on, your PS3 will find it while searching for media servers and you'll be able to access all of your media from your PC, as long as it's Windows Media Player 11 AND PS3 compatible. There are some other programs that work as media servers, but I don't know what any of them are called.

1) I'm pretty sure you have to have wireless, but I may be wrong.

2) If you've set up Windows Media Player 11 to share all files in your My Documents folder and your iTunes music is somewhere in the My Documents folder and they are mp3 files (or AAC, I'm not sure if Windows Media Player 11 supports that flie type), then they will show up when you do a search for a media server.

Right click up at the top and go to Tools > Options... > Library > Configure Sharing. The PS3 should be called "Unknown Device". That's what you want to allow sharing to.

Hmm... My PS3 is connected to my wireless network, and I can browse the internet from it, but I can't detect the PS3 from my computer with Windows Media 11. Do I have to set up a new network which includes my ps3 in order to usemedia sharing???
