Does anyone know how to BLOCK other peoples WMP garbage icon thing that appears on my PS3 from showing up? I really don't want this slur of junk on there from my familys PCs showing up on my PS3.
for streaming to the ps3 i found it's not very friendly for using an external hard drive on the computer and attaching it to videos
the best solution i've had so far is just downloading TVersity and it's free. been great no disconnectes during movies and it loads folders pretty quick beeing i have several folders too keep files seperate one for tv shows another for standup, movies etc...
hope this helps anyone haveing streaming issues
I went to CNET.com and got the Youtube Downloader... looks like a little red TV icon with a white arrow.... that helps me change any files my PS3 cant read into MP4s and then I can watch them with ease. You have to make sure that your files can be shared in your HomeGroup or the ps3 won't register them. I have well over a hundred movies and over 260 music videos that my nieces and nephews watch on the ps3 while I'm working on my computer. Couldn't get it hooked up at first but this thread helped with a few bits I missed. Thanks for saving my sanity! The kids actually let me work now! LOL
You can do all this in just 5 steps..
Step 1: Open Windows Media Player.
Step 2: "Click Stream".
Step 3: Click "Automatically allow devices to play my Media".
Step 4: Enable Media Server Connection on the PS3.
Step 5: Click on your PS3 select the desired Media Server and it will automatically connect.
Your welcome xD
