You are trying to install Windows Home Server on a PS3?

Not possible - WHS only runs on X86 or X86_64 instruction set.

I would guess, rather, that he wants to stream video to a PS3. Amahi Home Server will do that.

Not really sure what he's asking but PS3 picks up UPnP just fine and every Windows machine with WMP 10+ provides UPnP turned on by default. If you go into your services screen there's UPnP. So you could use any XP/Vista/7 machine to stream to PS3 (it doesn't actually take WHS to do this).

WHS actually uses a different technique for streaming things. Since I could never get it to work properly I disabled it and install WMP for the UPnP service.

Or use Amahi, FreeNAS, or well we've got UPnP providers coming out our ears. It's really not that difficult/special. You're only limited by disk space and which video/audio formats PS3 will play.

I looked at it and it seems some how unnecessary. And requires [the evil!] java runtime. There are other program that will do the same thing without requiring java and ffmpeg-whatever. The real feature of this plugin is the encode-on-the-fly part of it. I believe (someone will correct me I assume) this is so you have saw a big collection of avi/divx movies you don't have to go through and convert them to a compatible PS3 format, it just converts it as it plays. I tried to set something similar up once, never did work.

Anyway I haven't read the latest specs of what the PS3 can play these days. Do you really need that feature? According to this PS3 page it plays a great number of formats, including various mpegs and divx. I don't think it's really necessary any longer.

This post is actually dated from 2007. And it's to use the native technology for streaming. Which isn't really good if you ask me. At least I couldn't get it to work consistently so I disabled "media connect" and installed WMP to use UPnP for the streaming, which is covered in a convenient wiki.

You only have to do the magic for WMP once and you should be good. I assume you aren't afraid of a little registry tweaking...

You can stream WMP compatible videos without any problem just make sure you install all the power pack, this ensures that you are also able to stream .m4v videos. oh and MKV files arent support so if you have loads off them you can make .m4v out of them using a program called handbrake.

thanks for the advice.

i didn't look at the dated date in that thread - probably too old and won't work anyways.

if WMP 11 on WHS works great, then ill give it a try.. just that some files i will have to convert from MKV.

may i ask what file format are your files when you usually stream? AVI?
