Can I create a "Media Server" on Windows?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Using partition creation software, is it possible to create Media Servers for my PS3 to play media off my PC via my wireless network?

I'm prettysure you can use Windows Media Player, but no one does.

Everyone I know (including me) uses PS3 Media Server

Really easy to use & I've never had any problems.

Because, curiously enough, neither showed up in my initial Google search of "Windows to PlayStation 3 Media Server software". You know, 'cause Google tracks my search habits by way of my cookies or something, and for some reason decided that these two programs wouldn't be of interest to me.
