Problem to Share Windows Media Center with PS3


If you, like me, want to share the media from your PC/Laptop with PS3 and were unsuccessful then this blog post will help you out.

Its quite simple and you don’t need to install any 3rd party software to do so. This post assumes you have Windows OS and the PC & PS3 are on same private network. It’s only 2 step process:

  1. On the PC with the media content, you will have to add all the folders with media to the Media Library.
  2. After you have added, then open up ‘Windows Media Player’ and you have to enable Automatically allow all devices and computers to have access to your media.

Once you have successfully followed the two steps above, visit your PS3 and make sure you have ‘Media Server Connection’ checked in ‘Settings’. After that, you should be able to see your PC-name and browse the media library.

As always, if this post helped you solve the problem, please leave a comment or donate if you will to keep me motivated.
