Stream/share DVD from computer.

2 replies 189 views Edited Nov 21, 2011

I already have "PS3 Media Server" on my computer so my PS3 can browse & play music/video files from my computer.

But I would like to do the same with DVD's. So the PS3 can play a DVD disc that is in the computer.

The reason is that my PS3 only plays NTSC discs, but being from the UK originally I have a lot of PAL DVD's in my collection.

I do not know if this is possible at all, so, thats why im asking.

Thanks.

I found the solution; very easy, works well.

Using "PS3 Media Server" you can add your computers /Volumes folder to the shared folders.

Now any DVD or external media will show up.

Even though my PS3 wont play PAL DVDs directly, it will play them via PS3 Media Server.

there are programs available that allow you to copy the movie on the DVD as one file on your computer. some shareware some payware

you can backup as many dvds as your hard drive space allows, and then you can use PS3 media server to stream.

I get you so horked up
