Like Playback, this software hasn't been updated in over a year, despite the release of a major OS update. Is it still in development? Does it work?

I have several media servers, including MediaLink, 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?

I used to be a fan of this software, but I'm on the verge of switching to PS3 Media Server. Why? Because it's simply works better. A lot better. The PS3 MS's interface is awful, but the software just works, right out of the box, with practically no configuration. I started the app, it found my PS3 on the network, and flawlessly played a 12GB mkv file with 5.1 audio without flinching. With the tick of one checkbox, I was then able to stream DTS audio! All over wireless N! All of the above is a pipe dream with MediaLink. With the latest version of MediaLink I tried a half dozen different files and with a half dozen different configurations and under no circumstances could I get it to stream 5.1 audio to my PS3. I filled out of form requesting help with the issue on the Nullriver site and a month later I've still received no response. As a paying customer, I expect a bit more. And MediaLink can barely handle a 1.2GB mkv, let alone a 12GB file. And the configuration options are extremely limited compared to PS3 Media Server. Obviously they were going for ease of use here, but the limited options hinder your ability to fine tune to the server to your particular network. So if you're looking for a media server solution that simply gets the job done, PS3 Media Server is it. The interface needs work but the functionality is superb. And best of all it's free! It's shame that a paid product is so inferior to a free one.

great to see the dev fix the issue with mkv being out of sync, but version 2.42 does not work with ps3 firmware v4.00. medialink does not see ps3 in the devices and ps3 can't find a media server. i believe it is the ps3 update as i rolled back to an older version i knew worked, but now does not.. pretty annoying. pls fix to work with latest ps3 firmware as you can't roll back the ps3 updates. thanks

Nullriver advertises complete iTunes integration, but cannot (yet) transcode ALAC to WAV. Since all my iTunes music is ALAC, I cannot use MediaLink for music streaming via the PS3. And because many of my home videos also use ALAC audio, these will not play either. So much for iLife integration. Since there appear to be open source ALAC-WAV transcoders available, and since squeezebox server software on the Mac can transcode ALAC,it seems that it is only a priorities issue that keeps Nullriver from completing the integration task. I think that truth in advertising should compel Nullriver to advertise 'almost' complete integration with iTunes until they decide to fix this issue. Meanwhile, I will need to continue to use my Logitech Squeezebox Receiver as my audio streamer. And for anyone in the ALAC world considering Nullriver solutions, Apple TV is probably a better bet. Finally, the only user documentation I could find on Nullriver site is a FAQ that provides little useful information. How much effort would it take to post a one page quick setup guide?

I had been using media link for a while and for the most part it performed as expected. Unfortunately the upgrades sometimes cause more problems than they fixed. Recently I started ripping my DVD collection using Handbrake with a custom low-profile setting. I found the movies played fine via the PS3's USB port but when being streamed via MediaLink I kept getting an Unknown Format error. I also noticed that the directory refreshes were slow and the thumbnails took a while to load. Then I remembered stumbling across Yazsoft Playback. I downloaded the trial and loaded up a few of my movies. They all worked fine and looked better too. Even the loading of directories and thumbnails was quicker, more-over it works for the Xbox 360 and PS 3 for $15 instead of having to pay $40 for two different products.

Really disappointed with this one. Had read a decent review so decided to give it a go. Could not download the software on my mac, no matter which browser I used. Ended up downloading on a win7 box...Despite having a new PS3 slim, directly connected to a gigabit router, the two struggled to make a connection. When they did connect browsing for files was ridiculously slow and wouldn't tell me my folders are empty... Wish I could get my money back!! Back to Elgato for me.

I bought this problem shortly after I bought my first PS3, when it was still a relatively new product. Since then, I've upgraded my PS3 from the original 60GB model to a new 250GB replacement and went through several updates to MediaLink. I've never had more than "hit or miss" luck using this program, despite my PS3 being attached to a wired gigabit ethernet connection. Half the time, the PS3 doesn't detect the presence of any media servers - even when I force it to rescan for them. Other times, it shows up fine but movies I try to watch constantly stutter, despite transcoding being enabled in MediaLink. I understand the PS3 is partially to blame because it has very small buffers assigned for video streaming -- but there has to be something else wrong here. I can watch Netflix on the same PS3 flawlessly, and can stream movies from computer to computer on my LAN and view them with no issues either. The system running Medialink is a 2006 Mac Pro with dual dual-core processors and 5GB of RAM, plus booting from an SSD drive, so it's hard to believe it's a lack of system power to run MediaLink that's to blame. I'm unimpressed with NullRiver's lack of support too. Almost as long as I've owned this product, clicking on the support forums link on their web site tells you it's "under construction". I'm doubting they have any interest in finishing it!

I purchased the Medialink app from the app store today and once I disabled the firewall on my Mac I could view my shared folders. I can play music and view photos however all the video files I play say "Corrupt Data". They are MPEG-4 (extension .mp4) files and if I play them on the PS3 through a protable harddrive, they work fine, however, when trying to access the same movie through Media link it sees "Corrupted Data". Is there a file size issue? i.e. must be < Xgb. I have version 2.13 Media Link. Any help would be appreciated

Tried to stream a movie with chinese (simplified) subtitles and failed. I used all the encodings possible (UTF-8, UTF-16, all kinds of chinese encodings for simplified and traditional chinese), but still all I got was broken subs displayed. What encoding should I use for chinese subs?

I purchased MediaLink via the new "MacAppStore". Unfortunately MediaLink seems to be unable to playback PNG-images or WMV-videos at all !!! Both formats always show up as "defective data" when trying to open them. That's quite strange because these very same pictures/videos play perfectly when played from the internal PS3 drive or from an attached USB-stick. Both, PNG & WMV, are supported natively by the PS3 and therefore don't need to be transcoded. There should be no problem with these file formats but MediaLink refuses to play them.
