How can I stream iTunes purchases to PS3?

11 replies 517 views Edited Apr 14, 2009
Is there a way for me to stream movies that I have purchased on iTunes to my PS3 using DLNA? I have tried but I can't get them to show up. I have even tried on the other console that is a dang Media Center Extender and everything will show up, BUT anything that I purchased from iTunes. Is there a way around this?

to be honest, I am not anywhere near being an expert when it comes to networking. How do I try the PS3 media server? or ANY other media server? And no i have not tried tversity or orb....and I said iTunes....I purchased everything from iTunes....Idk where you purchased the movies for your zune...I can get all other videos to stream on BOTH consoles, but I cannot get anything purchased from iTunes to stream....

Get a USB

Plug your USB into your Computer

Drag movies onto USB

Plug USB into PS3

Go to VIDEO on XMB Screen (PS3)

Press TRIANGLE on Controller

Click on DISPLAY ALL

Press TRIANGLE on MOVIE

CLICK ON COPY!

DONE!

Oh streaming is pretty easy, well that is as long as your computer or modem don't **bleep** it up. I like PS3 media server it seems to work the best when you get the settings right.

I found the most important thing to set up is your port, bitrate, and transcode buffer size. It's really quite easy if you have questions feel free to ask.

That sounds like it would work because I actually took about 5 movies off of my laptop and put them onto my desktop using an external HDD. However, once I do this, the movies will no longer be on my desktop and they will only be on the PS3. Not tryna do that, I would like to stream them so that I can still have them on the PC for use on iPods and iPhones.

If I'm not mistaken I believe Apple has a DRM on the movies that won't allow what you're trying to do unless you get an Apple TV.

 

 

Please correct me if I'm wrong, this info is just off the top of my head.
