Streaming HD movies to PS3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am in need of some expertise. I recently purchased a new netgear router.
One of the features of the new router is a setting called 'readyshare'. It allows me to connect a Hard-drive to the router and share it throughout my network.
So I got a 2TB WD external hooked up to it. PC, TV, Hopper, PS3, all see the drive just fine. Music streams just like I intended it to.
But here is my problem. I am trying to stream a 10GB Blu-Ray 3D Movie and it won't stream on my PS3. I can get it to stream on my PC from the router without hiccups.
I converted the file from .mkv to .mpg so that my PS3 could read the file. It kind of just hangs there and it never buffers I suppose?
Is there a special setting that I need to weak? Really frustrated since I can get it to stream to my PC.

Thanks for the help.

Well since I don't see a lot of support online regarding readyshare and ps3's, I am willing to maybe tackle this problem differently.

In the past I have used my PC to stream movies via PS3 Media Server. Problem being, during the summer it gets hot where I live and I don't have AC. I don't want to have to leave my PC on in order to stream movies. I purchased this 2TB Hard-drive just for this purpose, streaming movies and music.

Any other options out there for me? Any NAS devices maybe? It needs to be able to handle 15GB movies. If it converts mkv to watchable formats that would be a super plus but I understand that this is next to impossible (except with ps3 media server).

Help please smile.gif
