    Stream Video to PS3
    Hey,

    I've been using medialink to stream videos to my ps3 but the quality is pretty awful and the videos I'm playing usually start to freeze about half way through a 1 hour video, sometimes sooner. I have tried putting the files on a thumb drive and just copying them over but for some reason they do not appear on the PS3. The files are around a 1 gb each, i've tried .divx, avi. and .mov files.

    I'm really looking for an alternative app that can stream the videos better, or, a reason as to why my files are not appearing on the PS3 when I plug in the usb drive.

    My current solution to get the best video quality is to copy the files wirelessly using medialink but this takes a while for each video.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    As long as you're not trying to stream DRM protected video files from iTunes, this is what I have used in the past: ps3mediaserver - Project Hosting on Google Code as it will auto-transcode many different formats to stream to the ps3.

    I say the past because now I just have a Mac mini hooked to my TV to act as a HTMac running Plex.
