THE Best PS3/Xbox 360 App For Media Streaming

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
PS3 Media Server

It's for Linux, OSX, and Windows. The program is plug n chug. Download, install, BAM! You can however tweak the settings for quality issues.

It is by far the app I have used to stream videos using my Xbox. I found it a while ago, but figured to share here, because I know a lot of people use TVersity, which I found to be terrible.

The only problem is if you have a slow computer, streaming larger files/HD video won't turn out well. You can change the settings to stream the video in low quality, but then that defeats the purpose of the HD video.

I'm currently streaming wirelessly using video from my laptop to my 360.

Once its up and running on your PC, for Xbox 360, go to the "My Xbox" tab or w/e > videos, and itll show up.

Agreed, I've been using this for quite a while. It's really the only app I have found that works and does what I want it to with my ps3, and as I recently discovered 360. I love the options in it and all the different settings you can tweak. Best thing for me is the on the fly transcoding so I can watch mkv's and stuff on my ps3 and not have to worry about what format the file is. It can be difficult to get right if you are tweaking specific settings but once you figure out everything you want there is nothing else, that I have tried anyway, like it. Can't recommend this app enough, although as mentioned you need a decent computer, nothing fantastic but at least a good dual core I would say.

I've used pretty much all the big names and have personally narrowed it down to both TVersity & the one mentioned in OP.

Try either out and you can't go wrong.
