any idea how i get ushare to send music and movies that the PS3 will like? My PS3 has no problems using WMP as a media server from a copy of the same data.
Save yourself the bother and get Twonky Media instead! I tried Ushare and MediaTomb, without success - then I installed Twonky and was streaming music 5 mins later…..you do have to pay for it, but I consider it money well spent (you do get a 30 day trial). This software is actually shipped as standard on many hardrive and media servers!
I'm having the same problem after installing uShare today. I have photos that work fine, but mp3s and videos are 'unsupported', which is annoying.
Anyway, I've spent the evening tweaking settings trying to find a solution. I'm kinda stumped now, but it seems to be down to the way uShare is handling the streaming of the file type information. I know for a fact that the files work fine on the PS3 when local, so it has to be down to uShare.
I'm not going to admit defeat just yet and try Twonky :), but there MUST be something that will work!
