Even with high def matroska files. Theres nothing it hasnt played so far, though 1080i files stutter just a little due to my PC not being the best. However leaving it on pause for a minute sorts that out. Also dont forget PS3 uses linux, so you can play all files like AVI direct from PC or from your PC hard drive with no probs at all. Sorry, icant agree with your findings. Ill take PS3 with linux (VLC, MPlayer) or Tversity anyday. Works perfect and no extra steps required as it shows the TVersity server on the XMB without doing anything I dont know what problems you had with TVersity but it works perfectly fine for me.

I don't have any experience with movies, but the first thing I wanted to share from my PC to my PS3 was my few thousands pictures. And I found that absolutely easy. You simply use windows media player streaming feature (yep, a microsoft product) and your PS3. As you said, finding streaming PC on a PS3 is a breeze. So in only a few seconds you have awesome slide shows. Well, when I say slide show, I don't only mean "slides" effect, which is available and bring back old memories, but also very awesome zooming in the face of every pictures, and other nice effects. I personally only watch movies in HD, but I love showing my latest pictures on my 54" hdtv from time to time! I think you forgot pictures.

Maybe you want to, and that's great (I am certainly playing with that) but that solution is hardly "perfect" either. The setup is harder and it just isn't something the average person is going to try. 90% of the users have a Windows PC so this is what they will try. And as for being a Fanboy, well I own both systems and a Wii. I spend equal time on the Ps3 and Xbox - they are both great systems. I'm not paid by either company so I personally could give a rats hind quarters about supporting one over the other. Give me both man. I'm telling you what I found on my setup. The Xbox 360 worked better with streaming. I was clear to say you might have better performance with Tversity than I did. I didn't spend time tweaking it. I do not like having to use the Web Browser on the PS3. I think it sucks and is clumsy. Maybe I should compare Orb, Tversity and a Linux UpnP server. Which ever one works best is good in my book. Anyone have any suggestions for a relatively easy Linux server to try? On a different note - yes pictures work well on both machines. Audio too. video is a lot more demanding so I started there.

The instructions I read said to surf there. I'd be happy to try it another way. I know if it was viewing video from something like MWP11 I don't need the web browser (just WMP 11 sucks not supporting mp4 files. See I don't love MS) but Orb and I thought Tversity made me go to the browser. Any ideas are appreciated. I'd love to have it all working from my PS3 due to the HDMI cable. With Tversity?

I had to hit Find Server a few times, but it finally showed up and works. That is a much better option than the browser. Thanks for pointing that out.

I wish the instructions hadn't said to use the browser. That makes it much easier. Still Tversity has crashed on my system about every other time I've tried it. I'm feeling better, but not thrilled with that. Any other suggestions? Oh and for the record, doing it that way does away with the slowness. I wish the instructions hadn’t said to use the browser.
