On our Windows8 computer we have 2 accounts, A and B. Account A has music in the music folder and streaming to the PS3 is not an issue. On account B all of my music in is my Skydrive. I can see the Media Server on my PS3 for account B, but all the folders are empty.
My Skydrive music folder is in my music library, but not in the default "Music" folder. Is there any way to access the music on my Skydrive through the PS3.
In short, can I access music on my PC not in the default "Music" folder?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

The PS3 doesn't know where the files are located on the PC. If the files are in the Windows Media Player library, and the Windows Media Sharing options are set to share it; then it should be visible on the PS3. Unless Windows Media Player treats SkyDrive media differently, but I'm not aware of any distinction there.

Windows users never seam to know what their Right Click on that mouse is for. LOL
Just booting Windows.... hang on it takes ages...
Right open WMP.
Using either option get you here....
Now Left click the "add" box .
Ok heres the hard part.
You have to navigate through the default hard drive ( c: ) to find the Sky drive folder inside that Specific users Home folders and then only select the Music folder part of the Skydrive. ( Im not going to walk you through that as it basic Windows usage which every user should have allready. )
Highlight the folder and click Include folder box...
This will add that folder to that library type...
Thats all I did and wait 3 mins for WMP to notice the new content. (stupid lump of junk)
Windows is not even my primary OS.. simples
Shuts down Windows. spoke to soon and a wait and waits, finaly its shutting down... O for smeg sake Enforced software update installs... Killed them...
OP So have you actualy got a touch screen PC that actualy needed W8 as a have written the above for mouse and track ball only...

I can see my music on my PC in the WMP, but just not in the folder structure on the PS3. I am posting to the forum as a last resort, I think I will give up on the idea of using the PS3 for my music library.

Youve messed some thing up big on that PC then ( Or its just WMP that broken again lol)
WMP12 treats all files inside folders the same no matter the location thats added.
Your Sky drive app Duplicates the Music on Each computer by Downloading the changes made to the online back ups to the local files.....
