Most of my movie and audio files are on my Linux box. Currently, I use ps3mediaserver to get all my media across to my PS3 which is my media center. Aaaaa… the simplicity is just amazing.
PS3mediaserver is Java based and getting it set-up is a breeze. Here’s how,
- Download the tar package. Remember to download the most recent version. Look here
[[email protected] ~]$ wget http://ps3mediaserver.googlecode.com/files/pms-linux-1.10.5.tgz
- Extract the download tar package.
[[email protected] ~]$ tar -zxvf pms-linux-1.10.5.tgz
- Go in to the new extracted foder and start the server by executing the “PMS.sh” script. Also, remember to give execute rights to the “PMS.sh” script by running chmod +x.
`[[email protected] ~]$ chmod +x PMS.sh
That’s it, turn on your ps3 and start enjoying your new media server.
