If you have a PlayStation 3 console you probably know about PS3 Media Server, the project serves as the catalyst for those wanting to stream media files on top of their PS3 box.
This open-source project is a DLNA compliant UPnP Media Server. Originally coded to support the PlayStation 3, it has now been diversifed to support a list of other media renderers, including Microsoft’s Xbox 360, various Samsung, Sony, Pioneer and Philips televisions, as well as other portable devices and more.
As we might have noticed, the software which has been made from Java streams or we can say transcodes a lot of different media formats, without the hassle of playing with the settings. It is supported by the MPlayer and FFmpeg packages.
Today, it has been updated with some notable features including Dolby TrueHD support. Check out the changelog and the download links below:
