At the same time, you’ll also be able to replay practically any type of media of your choice on your console, which you can do through the DLNA client and play it on a Smart TV of your choice.
Initially, the first venture into the whole DLNA server media playing was made by Sony back in 2003. They developed a non-profit trade organization to support the sharing of multimedia and digital media and files among different devices. It allows users to play different media files on various interconnected devices.
With that in mind was created the PS3 Media Server. This server’s role was to host multimedia files that could be played on the DMR, which was the interconnected network, making it easy for users to play a variety of files on this network.
So you can play various media files through this application on your smart TV right through your PS3.
It’s also easy to control and organize your files inside this server. The modular interface makes it easy for users to manage the media files available on the server. Although you want to make the most of this app, you’ll need a decent level of knowledge and skill about this entire technology.
It’s a pretty robust application and interface which will allow you to tap into your multimedia collection and play it through the DLNA player on your Smart TV.
It allows for real-time transcoding from DVD, BluRay, and ISO images. It also allows audio transcoding from audio formats such as the Internet, TV, radio, videos, and more.
PS3 Media Server is a useful DLNA server that will help you playback most of your audio and video files. Almost all media formats can be streamed or trans-coded through the use of MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR and AviSynth codec.
Little configuration to none is needed to use it. Functions may be extended with plug-ins available on the app’s site.
