View Full Version : Ps3 Media Server as Media Server

11-10-2011, 02:11 PM
The PS3 Media Server, is a free open source media server like TwonkyMedia and Tversity.
Written for the PS3, but works great with my Philips TV and home theatre system.
It runs on a networked PC that does the streaming and transcoding.
It uses MediaInfo for parsing codec.
It is possible to give a priority for audio language and subtitles to the transcoded stream.
Works with Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

I wrote a PS3 Media Server renderer configuration profile file for the Philips TV 40PFL8605h_12 and HTS9520_12.

All audio and video codecs supported by the TV were programmed within the config file according the specs from 'Codec_table_all.xls'
This way only the Unsupported codecs will be real-time transcoded.

According the specs from the 'Codec_table_all.xls' the TV config is suitable for the xxPFLxxx5 serie.

try it

HTS and BDP models both have according the Philips specs from 'Codec_table_all.xls' the same specifications.
The config would also be tested on a BDP player that supports DLNA.

Hi Toengel,

Thanks for Your fast response.

Have You tested the Ps3 Media Server config files with Your Philips renderers ?

The BDP9600/12 You have got is a DivX Plus renderer.
You can try use and edit the HTS9520_12 config file, by removing the limitation of the resolutions with the "Supported".

kind regards

no - my PC is to slow for being a Media Server. And I'm waiting for the HMP7000 as All-in-one-Player ;-)
