If you have a PS3 and a Windows PC with XP or Vista and you are not streaming video to it you don’t know what you are missing. It takes very little effort to set this up and you will be glad you did.

In order to complete this project you will need to enable sharing on your Windows PC. This will involve going to the Tools>Options area within Windows Media Player and go to the “Library” tab. There you will be able to set everything up.

Afterwards, simply go to your PS3 and search for Media Servers. You should find the folders that you approved for sharing on the PC quite quickly.

One thing to note, you really should have your PS3 connected to your network via a CAT5 connection (wired). Wireless can experience a laq time when streaming video.

Once everything is set up, you can see all your photos and videos and listen to your MP3’s directly through your PS3.
