Ps3 Media Server as Media Server
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.
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.
