How to stream video from Win 7 to PS3 or XBOX

Previously, we offered an article on how to stream media from your PC's Win XP to your PS3 using a program called Tversity.  With the suave new Windows 7, sharing without using any third party programs could never be easier.

The first thing you should do is switch both your ps3 and pc on.

With the PS3 you should navigate the XMB to Settings. Then right at the bottom go into Network Settings. Once again at the bottom is Media Server Connection. Click this and Enable.

Now navigate back to the Video menu. You should now see "Search for Media Servers" and possible the name of a computer/server on your network.

The next stage you need to load up Windows Media Player. Click the little arrow below Library and then Media Sharing…

You will now get the screen (as shown in the picture below). If you get a screen before this just click allow and then this screen will show. Next tick the two boxes under Sharing settings. You may have noticed an Unkown Device show up in the white box. This is your PS3. Click on it and the press Allow. Finally press Apply.

If it has worked so far, you should now be able to go back to your PS3 and your computer's name will have appeared. Simply browse through this option on the ps3 find all your media. Windows Media Player can now be closed and your PS3 will continue to stream the media. But don't turn off your computer.



Alternatively, you can fine tune and tweak/enable streaming from within your Windows 7 first.

First got to control panel and click Network and Sharing Center


Enable to following settings that you'd want to share like Videos, Music, Pictures, etc.



With both your PC with Windows 7 and Ps3 turned on and connected to each other via network router, check the tick box above labeled "stream my pictures….etc.", then click the link "choose media streaming options" and you can choose to allow your ps3 to connect to your PC.


You can also go to your Windows File Explorer (not Internet Explorer), hit WindowsKey and letter E simultaneously for short cut to bring this window up.  Then you can right click on your hard drive or folder contents and select SHARE WITH. That will also work in fine tuning your sharing media.
