PS3 Media Server runs on your Mac as an DLNA compliant Upnp media server. You just share a folder (or more), and this folder you can browse on your PS3 - when you see a media file (e.g. MKV), just press play - and the media server will process real-time video transcoding via MEncoder to the PS3. This means the PS3 will play unsupported files. Even with external .srt / .sub subtitles.

Current features:

  • Ready to launch and play. No codec packs to install. No folder configuration and pre-parsing or this kind of annoying thing. All your folders are directly browsed by the PS3, there's an more...

I have several media servers, including PMS, on my Mac. Since upgrading to MacOS X 10.9.2 earlier today, none of them finds my PS3 renderer anymore! Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

Easy to install, easy to use. Works perfectly getting my MKV files on my Mac running Mavericks to my PS3 and my WD TV LIVE streaming player. I was using TVMOBiLi until I ran into their data streaming limit. PS3 Media Server is noticeably faster. Instant streaming instead of waiting up to 30 seconds for video to start using TVMOBiLi. Streaming via TVMOBiLi also would pause video quite often while PS3 Media Server simply allow the videos to stream uninterrupted. This is the solution that I have been looking for!

Intego's "Virus Barrier Express" (Definitions 09/17/2013) reports me of an infection inside the downloaded

-> SelfModifier.class Java/CVE-2012-1723.gen
As a Mac-user I have not much knowledge in viruses and I'm not able to assess the "nastiness(?)" of this "thing". Any ideas? TNX!

It isn't a virus it is detecting but a known vulnerability in Java that this program may be susceptible to. Make sure you have the latest version of Java installed and you won't have any problems. It's fixed in later versions.

This new installer gives me a "Permission Denied" while it is NOT asking for an ADMINUSER/PASS ... I can not install/upgrade the latest version :-(((

That's the Mac OS, not the installer which "gives" you a "Permission Denied".
Control-click or right-click on the installer-icon and choose "open" from the popup-menu.

That is NOT the solution. The INSTALLER runs fine, but on 2/3 of installing, it gives a "permission denied" probably because it SHOULD have prompt me for a ADMINUSER/PASS and the installer didn't ...

Sorry for not being of any help to you.
As I said before, the developer should return to a "drag 'n' drop" installation. By doing so, your problems would probably vanish as well.

Problem still not solved, even running as admin gives me a "permission denied" in the installer, it tries to install something but gives no clue, no log, nothing, too bad

Can someone please explain to me why the new version (1.90.1) needs an installer now. I prefer having "drop 'n' drag" installs of software on my desktop computer.

Indeed, useless installer. AND after 3 months of waiting still no solution ...
I can NOT upgrade due to an error which does not give a clue where to look
I should start giving negative feedback !

Let's hope the next version of "PS3 Media Server" forgoes this useless installer.
... and and update to the atrocious GUI would be appropriate as well.

Extremely easy to set up and use. I have a Macbook Pro with an external USB drive with my movie collection on it. I have a wifi connection and my PS3 is connected to an Airport Base Station via an ethernet cable. PS3 Media Server automatically found my PS3 (as well as my Panasonic Viera TV) and on my PS3 I was able to navigate to my drive and pull up my movies. It seamlessly played back a copy of Dolphin Tale encoded by Handbrake from the Blu Ray disc. Minimal and rare stuttering of playback, no worse than what you'd get from Netflix or Amazon, and the overall quality looked better than those. Can't believe this is free. Don't stress about the user interface unless you have to. I don't have anything special or unique about my setup and it worked fine without me doing anything. I highly, highly recommend this app.

The new version of the Plex Media Server now streams DLNA to the PS3 works great. Honestly it is the only version I have been able to get to work 100% to my PS3.

The new version started pausing playback and loading buffers every 10-15 seconds on my 802.11n connection (iMac i7, pretty new Samsung 46"/Rosewill wireless USB dongle), for 640x480 movies.

In the Transcode Settings tab, inputting

keyint=5:vqscale=1:vqmin=3

got it streaming smoothly; IOW, I increased vqmin from 2 to 3. I also lowered the AC3 bit rate to 384 kbps, though that may not have been necessary. These were shot on our ca 2005 point-and-shoot, so didn't really benefit from high-quality settings.

But this change probably wouldn't get 720p or 1080i/p streaming working smoothly, though increasing the vqscale and vqmin parameters *might* do so. For the HD formats you might need a 100 mbps wired ethernet connection.

For me the best Media server. The only one, which operates error free so far.
