How To: Media Sharing
This is for people having media sharing issues. It's actually quite easy and uncomplicated.
Supports AVI (divx/xvid) streaming via transcoding as well as several other formats.
In TVersity, be sure to allow both TVersity.exe and MediaServer.exe firewall access or IT WON'T FUNCTION, see the video for details.

For Windows Media Player 11 (NOW SUPPORTS DIVX AND XVID):
1. Download and install Windows Media Player 11 (as I'm sure many of you already have).
2. Click on the Library tab
3. On the left you'll see a tree structure. Right click on Library in the tree structure.
4. Click Media Sharing
5. Enable your options, what folders, devices, etc. Further explanation
6. When your PS3 turns on and scans, Windows will pop up and ask if it's ok to allow the device. Allow it.
Also, Windows Media Player does not have to be open for media sharing to function. The computer and PS3 only need to be connected to the same router. The router should be UPnP enabled (Universal Plug-n-Play).
Be sure to remember to add files to the Windows Media Player library so they will be shared. Media Player can automatically scan for files. When I browse files on my PS3, I tend to browse by folder, so I don't worry about organization within Media Player or playlists.
For Nero MediaHome
Steps to get Nero MediaHome Running
1. Purchase/Obtain a copy of Nero Ultra Edition 7
2. Install Nero Ultra Edition 7 using Typical settings, if you choose not to include all the applications, make sure you at least have all the media-related applications (transcoders, streamers, MediaHome, Scout).
3. Nero MediaHome and Nero Scout are MUST INSTALLS.
4. Once the installation is complete run Nero Scout.
5. In Nero scout, select the folders you wish to share on Nero MediaHome, once selected, make sure to hit Index Now from the Indexing menu.
6. Once the indexing is complete, run Nero MediaHome.
7. Check to see if the shared directories are OK.
8. Options can be changed to your liking.
9. Network: Check the network interface which you computer and Playstation 3 belong to.
10. Devices: Make sure your Playstation 3(UPnP/1.0) is turned on, and that it has Allow Access shaded off. (It means it's allowed)
11. Transcoding: No changes needed.
12. Click on Start Server
13. Browse your media from your Playstation 3 and Enjoy!
Then on your PS3 you should be able to browse your files and play the ones that the PS3 supports (mpeg, mp3, photos) as well as transcoding.

" In addition, you may need to change the log-on account of the TVersity service (by default it is set to the local system account) to a user account in which Windows Media Player and the additional directshow components were installed (these are necessary in order to provide decoding for the media formats you need). Please refer to this FAQ section for step by step instructions on how to do that. If you have no intention to play online media and to do any kind of transcoding then you can leave the log-on account as is, otherwise leave it as is for now and later on if you experience transcoding issues, consider changing it."
